how do i catch exception in SIL

How do i catch exception in SIL with JJUPIN, i need to loop thru all users in a group to find the one who have this property "Division Head" and its value.

But for user that dont have this property it logs an exception on atlassian-jira.log

vDivisions = getUserProperty(vUser, "Division Head");

Although transition still continues but il logs a lot of exception

Hi Eric,

Unfortunately, you can't catch exceptions in SIL at the moment, but this feature will be available in SIL 3.0, which is still a few months away from release.


As a workaround, you can get the user using the The tables you need to look at are app_user, propertyentry (for the property name) and propertystring(for the property value). I would recommend you add a propterty to one of your users and then check these tables to see how the data is structured.

Yeah this was my solution for now.


I am looking forward to see support for exceptions! :)
