Create ChangeHistory Group/Item Entry with Scriptrunner

Andreas Morgner December 14, 2018

We have the following use case

There is a scripted listener which checks newly created comments. If the comment contains a keyword, the current issue needs to be closed, cloned, and the cloned issue needs to be moved.

Due to audit and security reasons creating a clone directly within the destination project is not an option - using a workflow post function neither due to multiple combinations of keywords and destination projects.

While moving an issue is not part of the public Java API for Jira, I would like to create the clone of the issue into the destination project and "simulate" the move by only adding an entry (ChangeHistoryGroup with one ChangeHistoryItem) into the ChangeHistory of the newly created issue.

This solution would look like the issue was moved while it basically was cloned only.

The Problem

While accessing the Issue history is very easy, I was not able to find any option how to add new entries manually, without actual changing/updating the issue. And as updating the project is not possible, the regular issue update will not work here.

As the SQL structure of the change history is very well documented by Atlassian, running SQL queries would be an option also, but changing the sequence counters manually this might be too risky for a daily action while the system is running.

Does any someone have an idea how to implement this with Scriptrunner?

Best regards and thanks in advance
