Auto-populating multi-line text field (Scriptrunner Behavior)

I have been using the following Behaviors script to auto-populate the Description field with some canned text from the create screen:

def desc = getFieldById("description")

def defaultValue = """

Default Text Here

""".replaceAll(/ /, '')

if (!underlyingIssue?.description) {

I'm looking to setup the same behaviour for a custom multi-line text field I've named "Reference Links".

Can someone help with the syntax needed to accomplish this? Thanks!

You only need to change from this:

def desc = getFieldById("description")

to this:

def desc = getFieldByName("Reference Links")

The rest should be the same
