ScriptRunner - UserMessageUtil how to specify time length of pop up message

Hello Community,

I have been exposed to UserMessageUtil function from ScriptRunner.

import com.onresolve.scriptrunner.runner.util.UserMessageUtil

I can make it work successfully, a pop up displays after a certain event, but I am not satisfied with how long the message pops up on the screen.

Is there anyway to set a time-frame for the message to stay on the screen?

Any help is greatly apprecaited!

This is not quite the "set a time-frame for the message" like you asked... but one option is to set the flag to manual closing.

First, construct your flag using a map. Then call the generic UserMessageUtil.flag method with your flag map as an argument.

def flag = [
type: "warning", //Other possible options are "info", "success", "error"
body: "Please Request for retrofit codes if not already done.",
close: "manual",

 The flag will remain open until the user clicks the x

But that's exactly what OP (and I) don't want, Jira messages dissapear in like 3 seconds or so automatic, I would like to do the same with UserMessageUtil, also close key in flag seems to have changed  to "closeable" and the value to a Boolean instead of "manual".

I can confirm as of ScriptRunner 5.6.11 the above flag map format is still working. For close, use "auto" instead of "manual" and the messages should close automatically after a few seconds like the Jira ones. Without the flags I was having the same problem, messages did not close by themselves by default.

Currently, there's no way to do this. There is an issue for it in our backlog, which you can vote for / watch. 

Is it available now?

It is not. That's why the feature request is still marked "TODO".
