Creating Generators

Below are a series of scripts that run through the creation of an Insert, Extend, Sort and Filter Generator.


JQL Inserter

// For brevity's sake we will have a permission variable that we pass when we make an admin level request

// we are getting the first (zeroth) element because this method returns a list, be mindful if you have multiple structures with the same name!
def currentStructure = structureManager.getStructuresByName("testScript", permission, false)[0]


def jqltext = "assignee=admin";
Map<String, Object> jqlparams = new java.util.HashMap()
jqlparams.put(CoreGeneratorParameters.JQL, jqltext)

// We have now added our JQL text to the filter (creating a different kind of inserter works almost exactly the same way, just build up the params variable differently)
def jqlfilterId = generatorManager.createGenerator("com.almworks.jira.structure:filter-jql", jqlparams, currentStructure.getId())

def generatorItem = CoreIdentities.generator(jqlfilterId); // item to add to forest

forestSource.apply(new ForestAction.Add(generatorItem, 0, 0, 0))
