getActionName() not always working on Kanban board.

Antoine Berry Community Leader Jul 25, 2017


I have a behaviours initializer which does things according to the action being triggered. It works fine when I transition on the issue itself, but I when i trigger a transition through a Kanban board, the behaviours sometimes fails to retrieve the action name : 

String action = getActionName()

  returns null. I have tried to put sleep(x) before, does not help. It is a problem since I need to implement the functionality in the next days and our users are using Kanban boards.

Any idea? Thank you

Hi, any idea on this issue? It makes the use of kanban board really annoying... it is embarassing for our users.

Hi @Antoine Berry

Did you manage to make this work?
I'm facing the exact same problem :(
Any workaround...?

Hi @Vincent Pochard ,

Unfortunately I was not able to fix the problem. It was 3 years ago, and I am pretty sure I did not use a workaround. Sorry :(


Ok, thanks a lot for your feedback!
