Insight - Asset Management

Mathieu Kasiers Oct 09, 2017


I m using Insight for Asset Management. I m using the build-in Insight Post Function at the end of a workflow in Jira to auto create Insight objects (like described here). I m getting an error when I m trying to copy values from Date Picker, Select List (single choice) and Checkboxes custom fields.  What's the correct syntax ?

Hi Mathieu,

It depends on what attributes in Insight you're trying to set.
I guess based on the examples mentioned, that it's a Date, Select and Boolean attribute?

What kind of errors are you getting?

Best Regards

Hi Alexander,

The attributes in Insight are Date, Text and Boolean. 

Also User Picker (single user), is that possible ?

Error messages, I will send you later

Hi Mathieu,

It's possible to set all attribute values in Insight using our API.

In the code at


As the third parameter, what you need to pass  is in the format of String... , like for the boolean it needs to be "true", for a date it depends on your settings in JIRA, but as in my environment it's "10/Oct/17", and for the Select, the same, like "Value 1".

It's also possible to be multiple values, like "Value 1", "Value 2" etc.

But as mentioned, I think the errors you get will explain more in detail what exactly is causing the problem.

Let us know if the above helped you solve the problem.

Best Regards
