A workflow post-function that sets the value of a user, issue or project Entity property. The value can be either a constant, optionally including a Groovy template markup, or the result of the evaluation of a Groovy expression.
To add the 'Set issue, user or project Entity Property value' post-function to a transition:
Click Edit for the workflow that has the transition you wish to configure the post-function on.
In the Workflow Designer, select the transition.
Click on Post Functions in the properties panel.
Click on Add post function.
Select Set issue, user or project Entity Property value from the list of post-functions.
Click on Add to add the post-function on the transition.
Select the entity from the Entity drop-down.
Input the name of the property in the Property name field.
Select the value type from the Value type drop-down.
Input a value in the Value field based on the Value type selected in step 9. Look at the Expected Value tab of the Groovy help editor to know the expected value for the selected Entity and Value type.
Click on Add to add the post-function to the transition.
By default, all errors (Java Exceptions) raised by this post-function, including those raised by custom Groovy scripts, will be logged in the JIRA log file but will not be reported to the user and will not prevent the transition from completing.
However, when designing new workflows or troubleshooting them, it is more convenient to be notified immediately of any such error during the execution of the transition. OndevelopmentandstagingJira instances, you can activate error reporting for allJMWE post-functionson the JMWE configuration page, and it is recommended to do so. But onproductionJira instances, you might want to show errorsonly for the post-function(s) being worked on, in order to avoid disrupting other workflows. To make errorsraised by thecurrent post-function prevent the transition from completing and show the error in the browser, select Make transition fail when an error occurs in this post-function.
