How to pass parameter into JQL query string in scriptrunner

Hello everyone

I want to set parameter to "assignee" into JQL query string.

I tried but there is no result .

Code below that


def slYetkilisiCF = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_15655")/
def slYetkilisiValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(slYetkilisiCF)

final jqlSearch = 'assignee = '+slYetkilisiValue
def parseResult = searchService.parseQuery(user, jqlSearch)

Query query = parseResult.getQuery();


When I executed, get output below;

log.debug(query)->{assignee = c0566(JIRAUSER56893)}

Output is wrong query because (JIRAUSER56893) is extra in string.

It should be assignee = c0566


How I pass parameter into JQL query string in script runner?

Thanks for your support.

To add on, what you are passing into the jqlSearch is the ApplicationUser object which gives you: username(userKey)

What you need is just the username which you can get using the method .getName() or .getUsername()

See this API documentation of ApplicationUser for more information. 

Moving forward, you can use something like variable.getClass() or slYetkilisiValue.getClass() to check the object type and read on their respective method in their documentation. For example, a String variable will return "class java.lang.String". 

Thanks for your support it is working now.

Hi @oytun_cayli_man_eu ,

has your custom field type User Picker (single user)?

If so, please try to do: 

final jqlSearch = 'assignee = '+slYetkilisiValue.getName()

I believe slYetkilisiValue is ApplicationUser object, so you need to get name from it.

Thanks for your support it is working now.
