A scripted way, to get all edit screens.

Milan B April 11, 2023

My goal is: I want to get all screens, that are in use as "Edit screens". 

Since it would be a lot of clicking around, to go through all projects, into the project settings, on the screens section, and check all schemes, and since I want to get a bit practice, I want to write a script to do the job. 

So far I can read all projects, I can read the Issue type screen scheme for each project, and the Screen schemes, that are configured for each Issue type within the Issue type screen scheme. But I cannot read the Edit screen, that is configured in a Screen scheme. 

Here is the code I have so far:


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.project.ProjectManager
import com.atlassian.jira.project.Project
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.operation.IssueOperationImpl

List<Project> probs = ComponentAccessor.getProjectManager().projectObjects

probs.each{ prob ->
    def itss = ComponentAccessor.getIssueTypeScreenSchemeManager().getIssueTypeScreenScheme(prob)
    log.warn("Issue type screen scheme entities for: ${itss.getName()}")

    itss.getEntities().each{ entity ->
        log.warn("${entity.getIssueType()?.getName()} - ${entity.getFieldScreenScheme().getName()}")



What I found :

When I have a Screen scheme, and I want to read the Edit screen, there is a method: FieldScreen getFieldScreen(IssueOperation issueOperation ) 

But I don't know how to provide that parameter "IssueOperation". It's not a string or an enum, it's an Object, I can create such an Object, but it's not giving the expected result.


itss.getEntities()[0].getFieldScreenScheme().getFieldScreen(new IssueOperationImpl("Edit Issue",""))
Is giving me the Create screen. 


I'm afraid, this is very specific, but any help is much appreciated.

Hi @Milan B 

I do not have much time to investigate to make it work with IssueOperationImpl BUT below a script that go through all Screen Scheme and return screen in Edit Operation.


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def fieldScreenManager = ComponentAccessor.getFieldScreenManager()
def fieldScreenSchemeManager = ComponentAccessor.getFieldScreenSchemeManager()
fieldScreenSchemeManager.getFieldScreenSchemes().each{ screenScheme ->
        if(it.getIssueOperationName().toString() in ['admin.issue.operations.edit']){
            log.error it.getFieldScreen().getName()
