Scripted field to read linked attachment reads too many attachments

I have a scripted field that reads any attachments from a specific Link type and shows the file name of the linked attachment inside the scripted field.

The issue that I am having, is it reads all of the attachments including the source issue. It should only read the LINKED issues attachments.

I am getting an error when looking at the inline script - Cannot call java.util.List

(see attachement)

Setup -

JIRA 7.3.1
Adaptavist ScriptRunner for JIRA Version: 5.0.1

Issue Linking: New Issue Link Created
SD-DeliveryTeam-OutLink
Outward Description = SD-DeliveryTeam-OutLink
Inward Description = SD-DeliveryTeam-InLink

CODE -

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
def issueLinkManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager()
def issues = [issue] as List<Issue>
issues.addAll(issueLinkManager.getOutwardLinks(issue.id).findResults {
    if (it.issueLinkType.name == "SD-DeliveryTeam-Link") {
        return it.destinationObject
    }
    null
})
issues.addAll(issueLinkManager.getInwardLinks(issue.id).findResults {
    if (it.issueLinkType.name == "SD-DeliveryTeam-Link") {
        return it.sourceObject
    }
    null
})
issues.collect { issue ->
    issue.getAttachments().collect { att ->
        "<a href=\"" + "/secure/attachment/" + att.id + "/" + att.filename + "\">" + att.filename + "</a>" + "<br>"
    }
}.flatten().join("")

Hello, 

I think this will get you close: 

 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def issueLinkManager = ComponentAccessor.issueLinkManager
def loggedUser = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()
def links = issueLinkManager.getLinkCollection(issue, loggedUser).allIssues
def linkedAttachments = []

links.each{
    if(it.issueType.name as String == "SD-DeliveryTeam-Link"){
        linkedAttachments.addAll(it.attachments)
    }
}

(linkedAttachments).collect { att ->
    "<a href=\"" + "/secure/attachment/" + att.id + "/" + att.filename + "\">" + att.filename + "</a>" + "<br>"
}.flatten().join("")

 

Hope this helps!

Hi Jenna,

I tried that version however the inline script doesn't like the att.id, att.filename and att.filename.

It returns no results.

Hmm, try this instead:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.attachment.Attachment

def issueLinkManager = ComponentAccessor.issueLinkManager
def loggedUser = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()
def links = issueLinkManager.getLinkCollection(issue, loggedUser).allIssues
def linkedAttachments = []

links.each{
    if(it.issueType.name as String == "SD-DeliveryTeam-InLink"){
        linkedAttachments.addAll(it.attachments)
    }
}

(linkedAttachments).collect { att ->
    "<a href=\"" + "/secure/attachment/" + (att as Attachment).id + "/" + (att as Attachment).filename + "\">" + (att as Attachment).filename + "</a>" + "<br>"
}.flatten().join("")

Let me know if it works!

Hi Jenna,

Yes, that worked. Is there someway to allow a wildcard for the issuetype? Otherwise I would need to define multiple Strings for each issuetype.

Great! And sure; 

For any issue type, just take out the if statement on the links.each portion:

links.each{
    linkedAttachments.addAll(it.attachments)
}

For a few different types you can define a list with them as so:

def myTypes = ["typeOne", "typeTwo"]

And then change the links.each statement to this:

links.each{
    if(myTypes.contains(it.issueType.name as String)){
        linkedAttachments.addAll(it.attachments)
    }
}

Let me know if you have any other questions! 

Thank you!

I used the myTypes array, works well.

For some reason, reading the Link name, just doesn't work.
