I have requirement to automatically comment custom text with date & time and user who performed that workflow transition. I have searched and wrote a groovy script but it comments only the string (custom text) and does not comment the date/time and user who performed the transition. Could you help me in editing the script to required output.
String currentUser = ((WorkflowContext) transientVars.get("context")).getCaller();
def plainFormatter = DateFormat.instance
currentDate = plainFormatter.format(today)
compManager = ComponentManager.getInstance()
CommentManager commmgr = compManager.getCommentManager()
commmgr = (CommentManager) compManager.getComponentInstanceOfType(CommentManager.class)
commmgr.create(issue, currentUser, "performed review at", currentDate, true)
username performed review at current date/time
Note: By removing import java.sql.Timestamp & java.text.DateFormat and currentDate in commgr.create, I was able to get only "performed review at" commented. When I include them I do not get any texts commented.
All this is available in the history tab, so just seems like unnecessary duplication.
Even if you need a comment, then people can see the time and user of the comment, and you don't need to worry about user timezones.
If you really want the current date you can use:
new Date().format("dd MMM yyyy")
Try it in the script console. I don't see where you've defined "today" amongst other problems.
