Changing the error message for failed nested transition

For a SIL postfunction on a subtask that transitions the parent Issue I get the generic error:

org.ofbiz.core.entity.GenericTransactionException: Commit failed, rollback previously requested by nested transaction.

How can I change this error message?

Hey, guys.

I have same issue as Paul has.

Any suggestions?

Recently we update Jira from 7.1 to 7.4.5 but issue still exsit.

It is a random issue, sometimes when you met the issue and create another subtask the issue will not appear.

Hope someone can help us on this issue.



Hey guys, hopefully I can help. Can you provide a little more context or info about the error? Is it completly random or maybe something about the parent that you are noticing?


I found some info about the specific error message occurring when there is a condition on the parent workflow that prevents it from being transitioned. Do you have anything like that on the parent workflow?
