Display a field from a linked ticket

Good Morning ! ScriptRunner assisted with the code below, which allows me to copy a date field from a linked ticket. I now need assistance making changes to the code below so I can also pull in a text field. Specifically the field I need to pull in is a single select field. Any help would be greatly appreciated !


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor



log.warn("--- Start script -----------------------------------")


def issueLinkManager = ComponentAccessor.issueLinkManager

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager

def customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(10508 as long)// Change 10007 with your "Incident Start Date/Time" custom field ID

log.warn("customField = $customField")


def links = new HashSet<IssueLink>()


def outwardsLinks = issueLinkManager.getOutwardLinks(

log.warn("outwardsLinks = $outwardsLinks")

def linktypeOutNames = outwardsLinks*

log.warn("outwardsLinksTypes = $linktypeOutNames")



def inwardsLinks = issueLinkManager.getInwardLinks(

log.warn("inwardsLinks = $inwardsLinks")

def linktypeInNames = inwardsLinks*

log.warn("inwardsLinksTypes = $linktypeInNames")



for (IssueLink issueLink : links) {

    log.warn("issueLink = $")

    if (issueLink.getIssueLinkType().name == "Relates") {

        def issueToCheck

        if(issueLink.sourceId =={

            issueToCheck = issueLink.destinationObject


            issueToCheck = issueLink.sourceObject


        log.warn("issueToCheck = $issueToCheck")


            return customField.getValue(issueToCheck) as Date



            return null as Date




log.warn("Not able to find any suitable outwards link")

log.warn("------------------------------------------- End script ---")

return null as Date


Thank you

If you just want to display selected value of Single select field from linked ticket just set template of your scripted field to "Text Field" and change all return values in script from Date to String (i.e. - "return customField.getValue(issueToCheck) as Date" -> "return customField.getValue(issueToCheck) as String"). That should do the trick. Of course you have to change your custom field ID accordingly.

I hope it will be helpful.
