How to import customfield checklist in EazyBI plugin


Im a beginner. I have problem in importing to create dimension and measurement of customfield cheklist from addon Checklist (Okapya). The customfield is not listed in EazyBI import option. How to work around this?


I also have tried in advance setting of EazyBI with this:


data_type = "string"

dimension = true

measure = true

javascript_code = '''

issue.fields.customfield_10020 = issue.fields.customfield_10020.replace("[0-1-M]","");


But it produce error while import. The error is: "can't convert nil into array"





Currently using Okapya 2.1.1 version.

As Checklist goes, the customfield is an array of ChecklistItem and not String. So unless the developer of EazyBI transform the string into a ChecklistItem via getSingularObjetFromString, the import will surely fail.

Thanks for your response.

I tried with non array of customfield, such as JIRA Misc Custom Fields (version 1.6.1), and tried configure in advance setting of EazyBI the same way (using javascript_code). But it produce error:

Execution of custom JavaScript code raised the following error: TypeError: Cannot call method "replace" of undefined


Is javascript_code accept javascript web programming? Or which programming language is accepted?


Sorry, the EasyBI developer should be able to answer that. I am only the Checklist developer.

Hi Abel,

You are all on the right track - eazyBI does not support import of custom field that returns an array. The best solution is to use the JIRA Misc custom field and get the checklist values as a string for issue. What does your JIRA Misc custom field return now? Is it a string / a comma separated string with all checked values?

When adding the new JIRA Misc field import to eazyBI it is no longer necessary to add the javascript. The settings for the new JIRA Misc field import should be as follows 

data_type = "string"
dimension = true
multiple_values = true
split_by = ","

where NNNNN is the ID of the JIRA Misc calculated custom field. Note that I have stated that an issue can have several values in the customfield and these values are split by comma.

Let me know more details of what the JIRA Misc field returns for each of the issues if you would need further assistance with this!

Kind regards,
Lauma /
