Set

The `Set` object stores unique values of any type, whether primitive values or object references. The Set is used as storage for all multi-value objects in this API: custom fields that store multiple values, issue links, issues in a project, and so on. You can access single values in the collection directly (see first(), last(), get(index)), use an iterator (see entries(), values()), or traverse with forEach(visitor) and find(predicate) methods. The workflow API is based on ECMAScript 5.1. This Set implementation mimics the functionality supported by the ES 6 Set interface.

Properties

NameTypeDescriptionRead-only
added Set The elements that are added to a field that stores multiple values in the current transaction. Only relevant when the Set represents a multi-valued property (field) of a persistent entity.
isChanged boolean When the Set represents a multi-valued property (field) of a persistent entity and the field is changed in the current transaction, this property is `true`.
removed Set The elements that are removed from a field that stores multiple values in the current transaction. Only relevant when the Set represents a multi-valued property (field) of a persistent entity.
size number The number of elements in a Set. Use thoughtfully, as the calculation for large collections (like `project.issues`) may be resource consumptive.

Methods


add

add(element)

Add an element to a Set. If the specified value is already present, a duplicate value is not added.

Parameters

NameTypeDescription
element Object The element to add to the Set.

 

clear

clear()

Remove all of the values from a Set.

 

delete

delete(element)

Remove an element from a Set. If the specified element is not present, nothing happens.

Parameters

NameTypeDescription
element Object The element to remove from the Set.

 

entries

entries()

Get an iterator for the entries in a Set. The same as `values()`. Use an iterator when you need to traverse over entries until a specific condition is met and modify the entries at the same time.

Return Value

TypeDescription
Iterator.<Object> An iterator for the collection of values.

Example

// We want to find first Critical among issue subtasks and assign it. var checkAndAssign = function(task) { if (task.fields.Priority.name === ctx.Priority.Critical.name) { task.fields.Assignee = ctx.currentUser; return true; } return false; }; var iter = issue.links['parent for'].entries(); var v = iter.next(); while (!v.done && !checkAndAssign(v.value)) { v = iter.next(); }

  • If you need to modify all of the elements in the Set, see forEach(visitor).
  • If you need to find an element that meets specific criteria, see find(predicate).

 

find

find(predicate)

Find the first element in a Set for which a predicate function returns `true`.

Parameters

NameTypeDescription
predicate function A function with one argument that returns either true or false for a given value in the Set.

Return Value

TypeDescription
Object The first value that returns `true` for the predicate function or null.

Example

issue.tags.find(function(tag) { tag.name === 'release'; });

 

first

first()

Find the first object in a collection based on the order in which the elements were added to the Set.

Return Value

TypeDescription
Object The first object in a collection or null if the collection is empty.

 

forEach

forEach(visitor)

Apply a visitor function to each member of a collection.

Parameters

NameTypeDescription
visitor function The function to be applied to each member of the collection.

Example

issue.links['parent for'].forEach(function(child) { child.fields.Priority = issue.fields.Priority; });

 

get

get(index)

Find an element with a specific index position in a Set.

Parameters

NameTypeDescription
index number The ordinal index of the element to be returned from the Set.

Return Value

TypeDescription
Object An object at index position in a Set, or null if the Set contains fewer than (index + 1) elements.

 

has

has(element)

Checks a Set object to determine whether the specified element is present in the collection or not.

Parameters

NameTypeDescription
element Object The element to locate in the Set.

Return Value

TypeDescription
boolean If the element is found, returns `true`, otherwise, `false`.

 

isEmpty

isEmpty()

Checks a Set object to determine whether it is empty.

Return Value

TypeDescription
boolean If the Set is empty, returns `true`, otherwise, `false`.

 

isNotEmpty

isNotEmpty()

Checks a Set object to determine whether it is not empty.

Return Value

TypeDescription
boolean If the Set is not empty, returns `true`, otherwise, `false`.

 

last

last()

Find the last object in a collection based on the order in which the elements were added to the Set.

Return Value

TypeDescription
Object The last object in a collection or null if collection is empty.

 

values

values()

Get an iterator for the entries in a Set. The same as `entries()`.

Return Value

TypeDescription
Iterator.<Object> An iterator for the collection of values.
