Display next task from Structure in email template

Hi!

Is it possible to access the isue Key from the next structure task within a velocity email template?

If so, how?

 

Context:

Currently I have an event that notifies the assignee of the next structure task when an issue is resolved. It would be nice to display the link to that next issue in the notification email too.

If you know how to obtain an instance of `StructureManager` and `StructureServices` in the velocity email template, then you'll need something similar to:

$user = ...
  $issueKey = ...
  $structureId = ...

  $structureManager =
  $structureServices = 
    
  #set($forest = $structureManager.getForest($structureId, $user, false))
  #set($nextIssues = $structureServices.structureQueryBuilderFactory.builder().nextSibling.of.issueKey($issueKey).end().execute($forest, $user))
  #if($nextIssues.empty)
##    no next tasks
  #else
    $nextIssues.get(0).key    
  #end

This code assumes that $user is a User object, $issueKey is a String object, and $structureId is a Long object.

cool thanks! I will try this out when I'm back on that project (after New Year)
