How to get the bug id from the bug issue

I have created a issue of type 'Bug'.

I am able to get this issue(eg: MYP-1 is an id for the issue)

Now, how to get the Bug id (i.e type id) using MYP-1

This I tried as follow


but not working

You really do need to think through your code. The line above IS working fine, but it's not doing what you expect.

Try looking at what it is actually returning - that should tell you more. For example, is id 1 really Bug? Are you looking at the right issue and is it definitely a Bug?

(If it's a sub-task, I really do think you'll find it is NOT a bug, but I don't have access to your system to check that instinct)

You don't say where you are doing this. Assuming it's in code, then look at the issue object.

I think you are trying to check if the issuetype is a BUG, right ?

Sorry, that's not what I meant. We don't know what you are doing with "creating the subtask". If you've got the issue id, then you should have, or be able to get, an issue object, and then read that for more information (including type - where Conrad's answer is what you need to look at)

Yes Mizan,You're correct

why you are not using the Create on transition plugin /script runner plugin which provides a postfunction to create a subtask ?

I am in learning of JIRA and given the tasks how exactly we can implement the plugin for so and so required functionality.

Hence instead of going for third party plugin, I develop my own

and also in Create-on-transition-plugin I customized the fields which I don't require .

ok , then you can refer the source of Create on transition plugin

The id of issue type "Bug" or the id of issue "MYP-1"?

I need the id for "Bug"

I need the id for "Bug" using "MYP-1"
