Built-In Scripts

What are Built-In Scripts?

You can use ScriptRunner for Jira Cloud's built-in scripts as an alternative to creating your own code. ScriptRunner built-in scripts enable you to automate manual, complex, and time-consuming tasks. Aimed at users with limited Groovy knowledge, built-in scripts allow you to quickly achieve your goals without having to write Groovy code from scratch. 

All built-in scripts are always visible and executable by users with Jira Administration and Jira System Administration permissions.

How to use Built-In Scripts

Built-in scripts have been created for some of the most commonly run tasks in ScriptRunner. For example we have scripts to:

  • Modify the resolution field of multiple issues at once with the Bulk Fix Resolutions script.
  • Copy the value of a field from one field to another in your instance with Copy Custom Field Values script.
  • Select Jira issues to clone and move to another project as a set of issues in bulk with the Bulk Clone Issues script.
If you require further assistance around scripts in general, refer to the Get Help section.
