Groovy runner: call a script in aother script

Dear all,

We are working with JIRA 4.4 and groovy runner 2.0.7. We succeed to do some scripts but now I try to call a function developped in a Script to use it in another script.

For example, I try to develop a script to initialize a date into fields:

package util
 
public class SetFieldToCurrentDate{
public static void setDate (String customFieldName){ Issue myIssue = issue FunctionHelper.updateCustomFieldDate(myIssue,customFieldName,UtilDateTime.nowTimestamp(),false) }
}


And I try to call this function in another script:

import util.SetFieldToCurrentDate
 
SetFieldToCurrentDate.setDate("Réception");

but I encounter an error log:
 unable to resolve class util.SetFieldToCurrentDate

Please, could you help me to understand why it doesn't run...

I would try to update, both JIRA and the plugin, has all this kind of thing works well in recent versions. 

But for one thing your code doesn't look valid, apart from it's all on one line, this looks wrong:

Issue myIssue = issue FunctionHelper.updateCustomFieldDate

In old versions the utility class would need to be on jira's classpath, IIRC. Like I say, best to update if at all possible.

Hi Jamie,

We will migrate in JIRA 6.x next year, but for the moment it isn't possible.

 

So I would like find another solution. It isn't possible with this version to call a function of one groovy script in another groovy script?

 

Best regards,

Céline

As I said: In old versions the utility class would need to be on jira's classpath, IIRC that is, copy it under web-inf/classes, according to the package.
