Using ScriptRunner to get the value entered in a scripted field.

I would like to transform the text inputed into a scritped field to be transformed into a hyperlink based on what is inputed.


So far I have,

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager

CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager();
document_id = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName('Document_ID');

//return the full href:
DOCUMENT_ID = issue.getCustomFieldValue(document_id);
return '<a href="http://server:port/object/Issue/' + DOCUMENT_ID + '">' + DOCUMENT_ID + '</a>'

This does not work, however.

Hello Brian. 

We are happy to take your question here. We ran your script on our test servers and we see it working fine. You have not given us your output, so we do not know what part does not work.

We guessed that maybe you are not setting the scripted field template as a HTML, but as plain text. If you set your script like you see in the picture below:

It should work as you intend. 

Thank You, I forgot the 'def' infront of the document_id.

Even though Scriptrunner is a plugin, since you are working on some code, I wager the Developer Community will be of more help:
