Some Live Fields routines can interact with other elements of the issue as well. Check out each routine's page to see any additional elements it can interact with.
Create Issue Submit and Issue Create Submit - both fields are used for the Create button from the create screen.
- If the button is accessed from an issue then it will appear in the Create Issue pop-up, and you have to use Create Issue Submit.
- If the button is accessed from the Manage Add-ons screen for instance, it will first appear on a transition screen, so you have to access the Next button if you want to create a new issue. For such cases you need to use Issue Create Submit.
To control all Create Issue screens using live fields, you need to use both of these fields.
The project field is supported only on the screens where the actual graphical field exists.
When it's value is accessed (with argv["project"]) on a screen where the field is not visible, the behavior is not defined. For example, the value can either be the project key, project name or empty.
Fields supported in the Customer Portal, since v 4.6
Starting with version 4.6 of Power Scripts for Jira, we support Live Fields in the Customer Portal also.
All the standard fields that exist in Jira but are also supported in the Customer Portal. These are: summary, description, environment, duedate, priority, components, labels.
We support Jira Service Desk Customer Portal specific fields. These are: Root cause, Workaround, Approvers, CAB, Change managers, Change risk, Change type, Impact, Investigation reason, Pending reason, Source, Urgency, Due date, Change completion date, Change start date, Time to die, Operational categorization, Product categorization. NOTE: These are basically custom fields defined by Jira Service Desk, so you can use their ids directly, like with any other custom field.
Additionally, we support all the custom fields like: CF Single Line Text, CF Multi Line Text, CF URL field etc. In order to apply a Live Fields routine to a custom field, you can choose to use either its id (eg: customfield_12345) or its name (as defined in the Jira Custom Fields admin page). This is to ensure a consistency in behavior for the same custom field can be included in multiple Customer Portal request types having different display names. This note applies also to standard fields (summary, description, etc).
Note that the "Raise a request" dialog/popup/iframe screen (accessible from the project's page in Jira) is not supported by Live Fields.
For this example we will show you how you can use the lfHide function to hide the Estimated field.
lfHide("originalEstimate"); //this will hide the estimated field
The image shows time tracking information before and after hiding the Estimated field.
The following example shows how you can set the issue type using the lfSet function with Live Fields.
lfSet("issueType", "Task"); //this will set the issue type with the Task value
Jira custom fields supported by Live Fields
Live Fields also supports the following custom fields:
- Cascading Select
- Date Picker
- Date Time
- Free Text Field
- Group Picker
- Multi Checkboxes
- Multi Group Picker
- Multi Select
- Multi User Picker
- Number Field
- Project Picker
- Radio Buttons
- Select List
- Single Version Picker
- Text Field
- URL Field
- User Picker
- Version Picker
When using a custom field name make sure you don't have more than one custom field with the same name. The action will apply only on the first created custom field.
In the following example we show how you can hide a custom field using the lfHide function. Let's say you have a number field custom field named count. The custom field id is 10100.
lfHide("customfield_10100") //hide the custom field by its id
lfHide("count") //hide the custom field by its name
You can also use aliases to apply actions to custom fields.
- People already know these events
- We offer a broad range of events to watch on
- People might want to add additional JS to the page. Mixing them would mean that the programmer would have to mentally map events from Power Scripts™ to JS and the other way around. Try to avoid that.
