originalIssue for postfunctions (not validator)


Is it possible to somehow get difference between issue before and after transition in a postscript?

In documentation I can only find its available for validators, not post functions.


Best regards

It depends on the position of the post-function.... if it's near the top of the list, you can retrieve the issue, before modification, from the database:

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

def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(IssueManager)
def originalIssue = issueManager.getIssueObject(issue.id)

If you need it after the functions which save the issue to the database, either retain a reference to it from an earlier post-function, or use the ChangeHistoryManager to see what changed.




@Jamie Echlin [Adaptavist] I think you know this. Sorry for pinging you...
