Scriptrunner post function move issue to a status


I use post function Fires an event when condition is true. Event = issue Assigned. In WF i got "Create issue" - status "Open" - status "To do". I need issue to be in the status "to do" if there is an assignee. Can you help me with script to use to move issue to a status "To do".

Hi Stanislav, I was able to do something similar to what you are looking for via a Listener, configured to trigger for 'Issue Updated' events :

import com.atlassian.jira.bc.issue.IssueService
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueInputParametersImpl

def currentUser = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()
def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.issueManager
def issue = issueManager.getIssueObject(event.issue.key)
IssueService issueService = ComponentAccessor.getIssueService()
def actionId = 21 // change this to the step that you want the issues to be transitioned to
def transitionValidationResult
def transitionResult

if (issue.getAssignee() != null) {

transitionValidationResult = issueService.validateTransition(currentUser,, actionId, new IssueInputParametersImpl())

if (transitionValidationResult.isValid()) {
transitionResult = issueService.transition(currentUser, transitionValidationResult)

What it does is it checks if the issue has an assignee, and if it does, then whenever the issue is updated, it would perform the transition specified in the actionId (you can find the action ID for the transaction that you want when viewing/editing the workflow, as in the image below :


So in my workflow, the transition action ID to transition an issue to 'In Progress' is 21, so by specifying 21 in the code it knows which transition to perform. You will need to find the action ID specific to your workflow/transition and edit the code accordingly, but it should fulfill what you are looking for.


What I understand is, you want to transition automatically an issue when issue is assigned, right? 

In this case, I would recommend to you to use Automation for Jira  instead os scriptrunner, will be easier to configure and maintain. 

Right but we dont have Automation for Jira in our company we are using scriptrunner.
