Adding a Listener

Each entry for the SIL Listener represents a script that will run for an event. When you add a SIL Listener, you need to define the following properties:

  • Events - event to react to. Required field.

  • SIL Script - the script to run when the event is received. Required field.

Infinite Loop

When you select a script for an event, make sure that the script does not use the raiseEvent routine to raise the same event, as this will cause a loop and crash your Jira instance.

  • Run As - Jira user to impersonate when running the script. If left empty, the script will be run by the currently logged in user. This setting might be necessary if certain scripts require more extensive permissions than those of regular users.

  • Synchronous - If selected, it's a normal listener. If not, it will be scheduled for execution on a separate thread.


  • You can add multiple listener entries for the same event.

  • You can map multiple events to the same listener.
