Import custom field values from API REST

Hi all!

I have a question related with Script Runner and how import values to a custom field from the result of a API REST endpoint.

For example, you have a custom field. The format of this custom field is a select where you can select one value, of a list of vaules. This values are imported from an API REST request. Then, you can select one of this values.

So, you have the field "My custom field" with the values: "Value 1", "Value 2" and "Value 3" that have been retrived by the endpoint:

http://myapi.com/myendpoint

Whose response is a JSON with the values {"Value 1", "Value 2", "Value 3"}

Then, you can select in this custom field the value, for example: "Value 1". And when the issue is saved, the value of "My custom field" is set to "Value 1".

Is this possible with Script Runner? 

BTW, this could be done in an JIRA Cloud.

Hi Miguel,

There is an almos exact example in the documentation. 

Select List Conversions

In your case you do not have to do the Database related actions, just to populate the map that you will return. 

Please let me know if you need any further assistance.

Hi Thanos,

Thank you so much for your quickly response! 

I've read the example and it's very useful, but I have a question, in the example it's said that:

"Finally connect it to a text field in your behaviour initialiser"

But, as far as I know, "behaviour" functionallity it's only available on Scipr Runner for JIRA Server, isn't it? The example I mentioned needs to work on JIRA Cloud, if is possible. Otherwise, I need to consider changing to JIRA Server.

Thank you!

Regards,

Miguel.
