Script Listener to set the Priority field

HI, anyone managed to set the Priority field (either by id or description) in ScriptRunner for Jira Cloud.  I cant seem to find an accurate example to do this.  So far I have this....  Thanks in advance


def update = put("/rest/api/2/issue/${issue.key}")
.header('Content-Type', 'application/json')
fields: [
summary: "New Summary here",
priority:"Critical (P1)"



I get this error...

PUT request to /rest/api/2/issue/HOTMOD-4328 returned an error code: status: 400 - Bad Request
body: {"errorMessages":[],"errors":{"priority":"Specify the Priority (id or name) in the string format"}}

The field needs to know if you're feeding it an id or a name, it's not a string like summary.

So this works for me:

priority : [
id: 42

Where 42 is the ID of "My Priority"

I think you might want:

priority : [
name: "Critical (P1)"

thanks for taking the time to post this.  After may retries I ended up with the below code and it works perfectly.


def priorityField = get("/rest/api/2/field")
.find {(it as Map).name == 'Priority'} as Map


def result = put("/rest/api/2/issue/${issue.key}")
.header('Content-Type', 'application/json')
(summary:"New Summary here",[name: "Critical (P1)"] as Map
