Kepler Redirect function does not work with issue key

Hi All,

I want to use the Redirect function from KATL-COMMONS to redirect the user to a specific site in JIRA.

How I want to do this:

- I call the site /secure/KRedi.jspa?CFID=TPAPT-16 with the parameter cfid = issue key (f.e. TPAPT-16)

- The script then shall return an url /browse/issueId (f.e. /browse/TPAPT-16)

However, the problem is, that the script does not recognize the Issue key. Doesn't matter which issue key I use, it shows me the same error message all the time:

The project or issue you are trying to view does not exist.

Even though it does exist. So I guess that the dash in the issue key is a problem, and that the script only catches the part before it, like TPAPT. I have tried it with ', ", ( and [ but it never works.

Does anyone know how to tell the Redirect script that the parameter I am feeding it with also includes the dash (-) and the part behind that?

Here is the little redirect script:

string IssueId = argv["CFID"];
if (isNull(IssueId))
string url = "/secure/KRedi!error.jspa?customErrorTitle=Enrich+Error&customErrorMessage=The+Enrich+field+of+the+Issue+was+empty";
return url;

string url ="/browse/IssueId";
return url;

Here is the link to the Kepler Redirect function:

Thanks in advance,

Hi Florian,

The script will always redirect you to /browse/IssueId and since "IssueId" is not an issue key, will tell you that it doesn't exist.

Line 8 should be: string url ="/browse/" + IssueId;


Thank you Florin, it works! :)
