Check for pre-existing duplicate links in the issue (on resolve)

Hi there, we have a script that was not written by me but is pretty slick in that it will check for pre-existing duplicate links in the issue and then check for new duplicate links in the current screen. 

Since we migrated to Jira 7+, the check for existing duplicates part of the script is no longer working. It seems like some kind of aspect of our script has been deprecated but I'm a little confused by the jira documentation. I'm not 100% clear what I need to change to the below portion. 

def linkManager = ComponentManager.getInstance().getIssueLinkManager()

// Check for pre-existing duplicate links in the issue
if (linkManager.getOutwardLinks(issue.getId())*.issueLinkType.name.contains('Duplicate')) {
    dupeLinkCount += 1
}

^ Gives us the following error:

`Script function failed on issue: KBSHARFILE-21, actionId: 31, file: <inline script>
groovy.lang.MissingMethodException: No signature of method: com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager.getIssueLinkManager() is applicable for argument types: () values: []
at Script92.run(Script92.groovy:28)`

 

Full script:

def dupeLinkCount = 0

def linkManager = ComponentManager.getInstance().getIssueLinkManager()

// Check for pre-existing duplicate links in the issue
if (linkManager.getOutwardLinks(issue.getId())*.issueLinkType.name.contains('Duplicate')) {
    dupeLinkCount += 1
}

// Check for new duplicates links in the current screen
def request = webwork.action.ActionContext.getRequest()
if (request) {
    def linktype = request.getParameter('issuelinks-linktype')
    def linkedIssue = request.getParameter('issuelinks-issues')
    if (linktype == 'duplicates' && linkedIssue) {
        dupeLinkCount += 1
    }
}

def resolutionIsSetToDuplicate = issue.getResolution().getName() == "Duplicate"
def noDuplicateLinks = dupeLinkCount == 0

if ( resolutionIsSetToDuplicate && noDuplicateLinks ) {
    invalidInputException = new InvalidInputException("If you are closing this issue with resolution Duplicate, please add a \"duplicates\" link at the bottom of this form.")
    invalidInputException.addError("issuelinks", "Please pick  \"duplicates\" from \"Linked Issues\" selection.")
}

Hi Kevin,

Replace : 

def linkManager = ComponentManager.getInstance().getIssueLinkManager()

With:
def issueLinkManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager()

Let me know how you get on.

Thanks,

Johnson Howard

That did the trick. Thanks Johnson!
