Jython Script Runner is breaking since JIRA 7 Upgrade

It looks like the Jython Script Runner is breaking since the JIRA 7 upgrade as even on a blank script, it shoots back the following error message: 'com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager' object has no attribute 'getJiraAuthenticationContext' - Any advice?

Hi Charles, have you found any solution for that?

After the upgrade I am getting the error:

<module> cfm = ComponentManager.getInstance().getCustomFieldManager() AttributeError: 'com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager' object has no attribute 'getCustomFieldManager'

from scripts that were running fine on JIRA 6.2 :sad:

Hi, you should use ComponentAccessor instead, see


Btw i've finally solved ( hopefully ) my problems with jss after upgrading from JIRA 6.x to JIRA 7.x.

it seems in fact that upgrade functions are bugged and even disinstalling jss does not work ( maybe because of some kind of configuration left on JIRA database i guess ).

in my case that lead into having old content of 



not updated, and also jython_2.5.2 deleted if i used "reinstall Everyting" from JSS installer menu.

to sum up, i had to 

  • uninstall jss plugin and install your new version.
  • check if  jython_2.5.2 was populated ( if not use a copy from your old installation )
  • check python files in 

    if they still import componentManager they are 6.x ones.

  • eventually remove all old content of jython folder and replace it with the content of contained into jss jar file.


Hey Marek,

As I recall, I had to completely remove the Jython Runner Plugin from JIRA (uninstall from admin AND go into the file system to remove the jython folders and files). It seemed like there were weird permission errors happening from the upgrade regarding that plugin.

Hope that helps,


Actually, I found out that ComponentManager.getCustomFieldManager() method was deprecated and ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager() should be used instead of it.

I had to re-write my scripts a bit, but it finally works just fine :smile:


Sorry to bother you after few months :wink:

No worries, I like to see communication about this stuff! :smile:
