How to get status of issue in formula in JIRA Misc Custom Fields

Hi guys, 

can you please help me how to get the issue status in the <! @@Formula ?

When I use 

issue.get("status").toString(); 

I get something like COM.ATLASSIAN.JIRA.ISSUE.STATUS.STATUSIMPL ...

While I was expectiong to get "Closed" or "Open". I also failed with syntax from JIRA dev documentation

issue.getStatusObject().getSimpleStatus().getName() 

Many thanks,

Jarda

P.S.: is there any way how to debug the formula? In case it fails to compile I get the custom field empty which gives me no hint on what's wrong. Any log would help? Thank you

Hi,

as stated in the documentation (as of... now), you should look inside atlassian-jira.log for errors (look at the end of the file right after displaying the issue).

In your case, you want to use:

issue.get("status").getName();

See https://innovalog.atlassian.net/wiki/x/BYAbAg for details.

Many thanks David!

Hi, I've tried to find outwardlinks where status is not closed:

    && ! issueLink.getDestinationObject().get("status").getName().equals("Closed")

 

where issuelink is an outwardLink.

 

Could you help me please, how to deal with it?

Thank you!

Here is the whole code, if it helps:

&lt;!-- @@Formula: 
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor; 
import org.apache.commons.lang.StringUtils; 
DefectKeys = new ArrayList(); 
outwardLinks = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager().getOutwardLinks(issue.getIssueObject().getId()); 
for (issueLink : outwardLinks.iterator()) { 
  if (issueLink.getIssueLinkType().getOutward().equals("is Parent of") 
        &amp;&amp; ! issueLink.getDestinationObject().getStatus().getName().equals("Closed") 
    ) { DefectKeys.add(issueLink.getDestinationObject().getKey()); 
  } 
} 
if (DefectKeys.isEmpty()) return "Empty"; 
StringUtils.join(DefectKeys, ","); 
--&gt;

Thank you!
