Groovy script accessing MySQL database works in Script Runner, but not Behaviours

Hi guys

Any ideas on why this might be - the code below quite happily runs in the script runner panel, but as soon as I put it in a behaviours object, it throws an error about a missing class, however the JAR is in /lib (where you'd expect)

Does behaviours need it somewhere else?

log.debug "Debuggering Start..."

import groovy.sql.Sql

sql = Sql.newInstance( 'jdbc:mysql://', 'jirauser',

                       'jirapass', 'com.mysql.jdbc.Driver' )

sql.eachRow( 'select distinct system_id, customer_id, site_name from site limit 1' ) { log.debug "$it.system_id -- ${it.customer_id} -- ${it.site_name}--" }

log.debug "Debuggering End..."

Currently running behaviours 0.50, groovy runner 2.0.7

Many thanks

Unfortunately the sources don't seem to be available - but I was able to achieve what I wanted with a Scripted Field executing basically the same SQL

I have the same problem with my groovy script ...

I will be back as soon as i find this.

Hi all - anyone else had this or is it just Bastien and I?

Bastien - what version Jira and Behaviours plugins are you using?


Hi Scott,

My Jira version is 5.0.7 and my Behaviours plugin version is 0.5.0.

I didn't solve my problem :( , so i've used the database custom field plugin to do what i want.

You will have to rebuild the behaviours plugin from source and add a dependency of MySQL driver jar in the pom .

Ok, thank you Mizan. Is there any update planned to add this function in Behaviours ? It could be very interesting.
