I'm writing a Jira Behviours script that accesses the epic linked to the current issue, and I then need to get the value of a custom dropdown of the epic
My script works ok, and can access the field, but getCustomFieldValue returns the string value of the drop down ("Team"), whereas I need the underlying integer ID (since the string values are not unique, due to different contexts)
How can I adapt my script so that it gets the ID, rather than the string value?
cfTeam = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Team") def epicTeam = epic.getCustomFieldValue(cfTeam)
I though adding .value, or value(), or specifying the variable as an int or double would do it, but it doesn't seem to
I don't think this is related to behaviours... this is just jira's API I think.
getCustomFieldValue - will return an Option object for a single select. If you toString() it you will get the option value, but that's not what it actually returns.
If it was me, I would have printed the return type, ie:
You can't really do any alternative because the return type for getCustomFieldValue is just Object.
Once you have the class you can use the javadoc: https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/latest/com/atlassian/jira/issue/customfields/option/Option.html
Setting up an IDE and debugging makes this easier.
