Simple Issue Language™
Simple Issue Language™ (SIL™) is an easy to learn scripting language (see SIL™ syntax) that is used by our certain apps.
For example with SIL™ and Power Scripts™ for Jira app you can create a post-function that automatically creates a sub-task.
string projectKey= "TSTP";
string issueType = "Sub-task";
string issueSummary = "Issue created using SIL";
issue = createIssue(projectKey, key, issueType, issueSummary);
See more examples here.
For the language syntax, check out the syntax page.
Jira standard variables
SIL™ has a list of standard variables that you can use to change issues fields.
For example, to change the issue description you can use the standard variable description:
description = "Issue description";
Learn more about standard variables here.
SIL™ comes with a library of standard routines to use in scripts. There are routines for handling arrays, strings, dates and there are specific app routines.
Learn more about SIL™ routines here.
After you get started with SIL™, see details on How it works.
