6.x Release Notes
Check out what’s new for ScriptRunner for Jira Server.
The version of Groovy used by ScriptRunner has been upgraded from 2.4.15 to 2.5.11.
Improvements and new features (like additional AST transformations, or the new
tap() method) shipped in Groovy 2.5 are now available to ScriptRunner users.
See the Groovy 2.5 Release Notes for more information.
As with any dependency upgrade, breaking changes could potentially affect users' scripts. However, the breaking changes between Groovy 2.4 and 2.5 are relatively minor. The low-level nature of most of these breaking changes means they are unlikely to impact many ScriptRunner scripts if any.
Take a look at the list of breaking changes in the Groovy 2.5 Release Notes for further details.
This version removes all support for the IntelliJ IDEA plugin. See our previous deprecation announcement for our rationale and plans for the future.
Hidden Fields Removal
Hidden Fields custom fields, which were deprecated in version 5.6.14, have now been removed. Even though all the hidden fields configuration and data will still exist in the database, it is recommended that users change the custom field type of all hidden fields before updating to this version. To change the custom field type, follow the Atlassian guidelines.
If changing custom field type via the database, use the following type keys:

Use of Natural Searchers in Script Fields
Previously many users may have used the Natural Searchers for Jira plugin. Use of these searchers on script fields allows the use of gadgets such as Two Dimensional Filter Statistics and Heatmap, for these fields.
This release of ScriptRunner includes searchers similar to those provided by the Natural Searchers for Jira plugin. On installation of this version, ScriptRunner converts any usage of searchers in script fields from the plugin versions, to ScriptRunner-native versions.
|If you are only using this plugin for script fields natural searchers, you can uninstall the Natural Searchers for Jira_ plugin. To check your usage of the Natural Searchers for Jira plugin navigate to *Admin → Natural Searchers.|
