Check out what’s new for ScriptRunner for Jira Server.
New Workflow Function
You asked us for more built-in workflow functions that don't require coding, and we heard you! In this release we have added the following workflow functions:
Using Behaviours has been simplified.
Now, when setting form values for fields such as select lists, radio buttons, checkboxes, components, and versions etc, you can use the display value rather than looking up the IDs of the options themselves. The same also applies when setting the available options:
getFieldByName("My checkboxes").setFormValue(['Yes', 'Maybe']) getFieldByName("My single select").setFormValue('Oranges') getFieldByName("My versions field").setFieldOptions(['Version One', 'Version Two']) getFieldByName("My radio buttons").setFieldOptions(['Yes', 'No'])
We will validate that the provided value(s) is acceptable for whatever context you are setting it in.

New ScriptRunner Action for Automation for Jira
Automation for Jira has released a new API for third-party integrations. This allows us to provide some requested enhancements, such as the ability to retrieve the initiator of the action, and the ability to use smart values. We have also added the ability to use dynamic forms.
Because the API was so different, we have decided to provide a new action and deprecate the original one. If you need the new action, copy your script from the old action to the new, and remove the old one.
Read more in our documentation on Automation for Jira.
You can now view, edit, delete and disable/enable ScriptRunner workflow functions from the Workflows tab. We have also made it easier to create a new ScriptRunner workflow function, by adding this functionality to the Workflows tab. See our workflow functions documentation for more information.

Potentially Breaking Change
Previously, you could enable sorting in JQL queries through the use of the
getSortValue closure and
sortAttribute property in Database and LDAP pickers respectively.
These are now redundant. If you had implemented these, and don’t make any changes, the sort order may not be what it was before upgrading. Assuming you want the default value to be indexed and to be used for sorting, it’s safe to remove them. Otherwise, see the new configuration options at Database Picker or LDAP Picker.

The version of Groovy used by ScriptRunner has been upgraded from 2.4.15 to 2.5.11. Improvements and new features (like additional AST transformations, or the new
tap() method) shipped in Groovy 2.5 are now available to ScriptRunner users. See the Groovy 2.5 Release Notes for more information.
As with any dependency upgrade, breaking changes could potentially affect users' scripts. However, the breaking changes between Groovy 2.4 and 2.5 are relatively minor. The low-level nature of most of these breaking changes means they are unlikely to impact many ScriptRunner scripts if any.
Take a look at the list of breaking changes in the Groovy 2.5 Release Notes for further details.
This version removes all support for the IntelliJ IDEA plugin. See our previous deprecation announcement for our rationale and plans for the future.
Hidden Fields Removal
Hidden Fields custom fields, which were deprecated in version 5.6.14, have now been removed. Even though all the hidden fields configuration and data will still exist in the database, it is recommended that users change the custom field type of all hidden fields before updating to this version. To change the custom field type, follow the Atlassian guidelines.
If changing custom field type via the database, use the following type keys:
and custom field searcher:
Use of Natural Searchers in Script Fields
Previously many users may have used the Natural Searchers for Jira plugin. Use of these searchers on script fields allows the use of gadgets such as Two Dimensional Filter Statistics and Heatmap, for these fields.
This release of ScriptRunner includes searchers similar to those provided by the Natural Searchers for Jira plugin. On installation of this version, ScriptRunner converts any usage of searchers in script fields from the plugin versions, to ScriptRunner-native versions.
If you are only using this plugin for script fields natural searchers, you can uninstall the Natural Searchers for Jira plugin. To check your usage of the Natural Searchers for Jira plugin navigate to Admin → Natural Searchers.
Please see the warning message on usage.
