Copy system field into custom field


I'm trying to  copy system field (id = aggregatetimespent ) into a custom field using script field.

As I understand getCustomFieldObject is only good for custom fields

and getFieldById saying "can't find matching method".


So how can I get the value of a system field in a "Custom Script Field"?

It's possible but I trying to understand it there is just a way to get the value from the system field.

Yes, that call I mentioned should fetch it for the issue.
