How to execute Shell script in the Post Functions/Validators

swathi K Apr 23, 2019

I want to executing a shell script in the post functions and the output obtained from it should be stored in a Text Type custom field.

I have tried using the below script but it did not work. Kindly suggest.

def sout = new StringBuffer(), serr = new StringBuffer()
def proc = 'sh /jira/'.execute ()

String fileContents = new File('jira/out.txt').getText('UTF-8')
return fileContents

I have been using this snippet to execute sh scripts : 

def shCommand = "sh /jira/"
return = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(shCommand);
int exitCode = return.waitFor()

Let me know how that went.
