Copying Insight Attribute Values between Insight Objects

I'm trying to copy the attribute values from one insight object to another, let's say oldObject and newObject. However, in newObject, the attribute field may already have another value, in which case the values should be appended.

I created a groovy script that needs to do this behaviour, but it fails and I'm not really sure why. I've added the errors thrown by the script here in the hopes that someone can point me in the right direction.

2020-02-04 15:39:47,371 insight-event-1 ERROR system [com.acme.workflows] 01-copy-references ---- Could not update object attribute! Error: com.riadalabs.jira.plugins.insight.common.exception.ValidationInsightException: ValidationInsightException: Validation errors were found: Errors: {rlabs-insight-attribute-2040=At least one value must be set}

Thanks in advance!

Can you show your Groovy Script i'm looking to copy attributes from 1 attribute (ref) to another (referenced) attribute in all objects.

Hi Jorden,


You did not supply value to a mandatory attribute with attribute ID 2040 through your Groovy Script (probably "Name") which may be why you are getting this error.
