Script Runner: Using JQL functions from other plugins


I'm using in my script this JQL function from Profields plugin:

SearchService.ParseResult parseResult = searchService.parseQuery(ApplicationUsers.toDirectoryUser(user), "project in profieldsOperator(Language,\"=\",EN)")

When I run this script from Script Console everything works properly. But when I run it from script file as a scheduled service I get this error:

Script Runner [jira.profields.jql.JqlFunctionProfieldsOperator] Error JQL function profields when execute getValues() in class com.deiser.jira.profields.jql.JqlFunctionProfieldsOperator


What could be the reason for such error?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Best regards,

Lukasz Chomin

There is no user context in a service - you will need to set one with something like:

ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().setLoggedInUser(User or ApplicationUser)

but JQL functions should handle this more gracefully...

Hi Jamie,
Thanks for your prompt reply.
You are genius, adding this one line solved the issue.

BTW. Having this opportunity, may I transition an issue and add comment in the same step? Currently I'm doing this with two methods:

commentManager.create(issueManager.getIssueObject(, user, comment, true);

and therefore I'm getting two notifications.
It would be much more user friendly to just get one.



This is a different question really... but wtu.setParams([comment: "my comment"]) might work... I've moved to using IssueService, but that has its own problems.
