Validate a text box content is a Valid JSON.


1. I need to validate that a text box is content is a valid JSON.

2. I also need to validate its keys and attributes.

I guess I can do it with script runner but I don't know where to start.

Any help would do .

You can just try/catch with groovy.json.JsonParser#parse(java.lang.String)

unable to resolve class groovy.json.JsonParser ...

how do I add it to my jira?

try JsonSlurper...

import groovy.json.JsonSlurper;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue;
import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager;

IssueManager issueManager = ComponentManager.getInstance().getIssueManager();
MutableIssue Issue = issueManager.getIssueObject("DEMO-1234");

CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentManager.getInstance().getCustomFieldManager();
CustomField jsonObject = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("DEMO");
def jsonResponse = Issue.getCustomFieldValue(jsonObject)

def slurper = new JsonSlurper()

try {
	def result = slurper.parseText(jsonObject)
        return true
} catch (any) {
	return false;

You need a "validator" to do this, you can add one to the workflow transitions.
