Script Runner: getParentObject from Epic to Story

Hello Script Runner team,

When saving the Story we have script in "post function" in the Story transition

We are trying to get a customfield from Epic to Story. (from parent to story)

This is the script:


import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager;

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager;

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField;

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;

ComponentManager componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance()

CustomField cpi = componentManager.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Project ID")

log.warn issue.getParentObject().getCustomFieldValue(cpi)

It seems that getParentObject doesn't work. Could you give us some other advice how to pick up this custom field? It works when using subtask, but not anything else than subtask.

Stories don't have parents, they are already at a parent level.

Epics don't work by having stories as children, it's an Epic Link.

This has been asked and answered recently... you need to traverse the epic link to get epic fields.
