Error in scriptrunner code - getting select list values

Catheline August 10, 2022

I am trying to get the select list value from JIRA and pass on the value to payload.


Custom Field = Impact

Type = Select List

If I give the value directly as Impact = "Medium" and pass the payload , I am getting a 200 status code

but if I try with the below method,

def impact = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Impact")
def impactV = issue.getCustomFieldValue(impact).toString()"Impact is " + impactV)

am getting the below error,

groovy.lang.MissingMethodException: No signature of method: is applicable for argument types: (String) values: [Medium]
Possible solutions: wait(), any(), wait(long), each(groovy.lang.Closure), tap(groovy.lang.Closure), any(groovy.lang.Closure)

Can someone please help me with this?

Hi @Catheline

In your description, you mentioned:-

I am trying to get the select list value from JIRA and pass on the value to payload.

May I know what you are using the pass the value? Is it a Post-Function?

I've done a basic test in my environment using the Post-Function, and I do not seem to be encountering any problems.

From the code that you have shared, I notice a bad approach, i.e.:-

def impact = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Impact")

This approach has been deprecated.

You should instead invoke your custom field like:-

def impact = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectsByName('Impact').first()

Below is the sample code that I have tested with:-

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager
def sampleList = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectsByName('Sample List').first()
def sampleListValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(sampleList) as String

log.warn "=====>>>> Value Selected: ${sampleListValue}"

Below is a screenshot of the test that I have done. I have selected Option 1 from the Sample  List field.


Once the issue transitions, the log output returned is:-

2022-08-11 16:42:26,805+0800 http-nio-9091-exec-16 WARN admin 1002x668x1 1incwoo 0:0:0:0:0:0:0:1 /secure/WorkflowUIDispatcher.jspa [c.o.scriptrunner.runner.ScriptBindingsManager] =====>>>> Value Selected: Option 1

I hope this helps to answer your question. :)

Thank you and Kind regards,
