Is it possible in plugin to monitor Summary field input value change?

Hi, I want to implement a plugin to monitor the summary field value change, search the similar tickets base on the inputed value in the summary field in current project.

One more requirement, i want to implement this via web service, does anyone know the JIRA web service interface and the wiki web service interface, that is appropriate.

You can monitor this change in a JIRA listener but I don't understand what you mean by implement via web service. Can you explain?

If you mean remote API, you won't be able to listen on changes using Remote API but you might be able to pull changes at every specified interval.

Hi Jobin, thanks very much for your reply. could you please tell me more detail about this listener?

is it context listener or other listener?

My purpose of Web Service is that I want to search out similar tickets from the same project with the value typed in the Summary field, so the search method I plan to use is via JIRA web service. wish it clear.

See https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Listeners

See the tutorial at the end of that document

Regarding searching similar issues, you can do that from the plugin itself using searchService.

Sorry, can you explain more? Why is it not possible?

Hi Jobin, I am not sure whether it is possible to implement this when creating issue with listener.thanks!!

I see. That wasn't clear to me. Makes sense now.

Well, then you are looking at Suggestimate. Jamie had a solution too. You can check if it works with your version.

Hi Jobin, i want implement this before clicking on *Create* button, not after.

Exactly, it is what I want, thanks you so much!!!!!
