How to change custom field value when issue is edited


I have post-function script (called in "Create Issue" transition) which sets ”Team” custom field to some particular value which is taken from component description. The script works fine.

Now I would like to implement the same procedure but when issue is edited, e.g. user noticed that wrong component has been selected and modifies the components, and modified component should select another team.

I think "Edit" is not part of workflow, and I do not know when and where script can be called. Could you please advise how "automatical selection" for "Edit Issue" can be implemented?

Thank you in advance.

Regards, Georgiy

What you need is a event listener

have a look at the tutorial here for a general picture

have fun coding :)

As Parthis says, you'll need a listener. This is because the "edit" function (and most of the other operations) do not have hooks for post-functions, so there's actually nowhere to install and run your code. Listeners pick up events, which "edit" always fires.
