Script does not work after upgrading to JIRA 7.x

Michael Bibby Dec 19, 2017
We upgraded JIRA and script runner and this code stopped working.  Has this happened to anyone?

log.debug "issue"

Hi @Michael Bibby,


In short, you are receiving errors because all ComponentManager methods have been removed. Instead, your code should utilize ComponentAcessor. You should remove ComponentManager and import ComponentAccessor instead:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

To get the CustomFieldManager, you should access it through ComponentAcessor:

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()

Until you make these modifications, your scripts will fail as they are not compatible with JIRA 7.


Please refer this guide.
