Scriptrunner - Update summary field from a custom listener


What is the correct way to update an issues summary field from a custom listener, I am listening on all issue changes.


Alternativly, what would be the best way to update the summary field everytime a specific custom field is changed?

Thank you,

Hi Justin,

This should work when using a Listener:

MutableIssue issue = issue
IssueManager im = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager();
def issueToChange = im.getIssueObject(
issueToChange.summary = "TEST"
def currentUser = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()
UserManager userManager =   ComponentAccessor.getUserManager();
ApplicationUser user = userManager.getUserByName(
im.updateIssue(user, issueToChange, EventDispatchOption.DO_NOT_DISPATCH, false)
