Sample code for retrieving a project metadata

First of all thanks Andreas for such nice plugin.

After some hours of trying I made working using Script Runner for getting a metadata ("mykey") from given project ("RISK")

Just want to share it with you this short snippet to save your time, I hope it helps :)

Regards,

Jarda

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.plugin.osgi.container.OsgiContainerManager
import com.atlassian.jira.project.Project
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor


Project project = ComponentAccessor.getProjectManager().getProjectObjByKey("RISK");

OsgiContainerManager osgiManager = ComponentManager.getInstance().getComponentInstanceOfType(OsgiContainerManager.class)

String x = osgiManager.getServiceTracker("com.osoboo.jira.metadata.MetadataService").getService().getMetadataValue(project, "mykey")

Good stuff!

 

Do you know if you can get the metadata out using the existing JIRA API?

Thx, not to my knowledge :(

It's' unfortunate that the groovy embedded "compiler" gives  you a potential error in the script, but it works when running a preview on an issue.  Thanks!!!!!

Is there a way to write this in java?

My understanding is that GROOVY script is Java with some "fluff".  And that GROOVY follows almost all, if not all the syntax conventions of JAVA.  Which part isn't working for you the way it's written in groovy

I guess in order to make it work in JAVA you may have to wrap it in a class to get it to execute?

Thanks Phillip. I realized that the metadata plugin is not free anymore so we're not going to install int anymore on the latest Jira version we are upgrading to soon. We are going to use the Project Properties Plugin for Jira as a replacement.

Really? That's the third plugin I remember which used to be free and became paid. Damn it, we run 10k license :( 

Hi Can you please provide the steps in jira how to take the metadata backup using script runner
