Can you please show me where you are putting the inline script.

And the versions you are using of Jira and Scriptrunner.

EPAutoLabel.groovy script is in the only "scripts" subdirectory...



And "inline" script consists of nothing more than:


(without the quotes of course)
 In a Post Function Transition.

Jira -Version 7.3.6 Build Number 73017
ScriptRunner -Version 5.0.4

Ok so you will need to import the class. 

For example:



import exampleScripts.EPAutoLabel

def test = new EPAutoLabel()

Obviously you will have to change the import to match where your class is located. Make sure that the file name matches the class name.

Hmm. No such luck.

"Script31.groovy: unable to resolve class EPAutoLabel
line 1, column 1.
import EPAutoLabel"

EPAutoLabel.groovy is in the root (default package?) of scripts subdirectory.

I've also tried creating a subdirectory/package EP/AutoLabel.groovy and get the same error trying to import EP.AutoLabel -- unable to resolve class.

If I put the entire path to the class above the inline field, it has no problem finding/compiling the AutoLabel class, but inline seems to not see the scripts directory as documented.

I'm curious what version of ScriptRunner you are on, and whether this happens when your script runs or just in the code editor. There were some issues in the past where the static type checker fails to resolve classes from the script roots, but those should be fixed in the latest version.

Can you provide a screenshot of the error? Or are you seeing this in your log file on execution?

Jira -Version 7.3.6 Build Number 73017
ScriptRunner -Version 5.0.4

Originally, the entire method was inline -- I'm attempting to wrap it in a single method that can be easily called in any transition event inline script.


After some more searching, it appears I'm falling victim to a known bug that is still open:
