Groovy script problem

I copy the following copy from adaptavist library:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueFieldConstants
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue

// the name of the field to copy
final String fieldNameToCopy = "Priority";

// leave blank to copy from the last linked issue (regardless the link type)
final String issueLinkTypeName = "Blocks"

def fieldManager = ComponentAccessor.fieldManager

def fieldToCopy = fieldManager.allAvailableNavigableFields.find { == fieldNameToCopy }
if (!fieldToCopy) { "Could not find field with name $fieldNameToCopy"

def linkedIssues = ComponentAccessor.issueLinkManager.getOutwardLinks(
if (!linkedIssues) { "There are no linked issues"

if (issueLinkTypeName && !(issueLinkTypeName in linkedIssues*.issueLinkType*.name)) { "Could not find any issue, linked with the $issueLinkTypeName issue type"

def linkedIssue = issueLinkTypeName ?
linkedIssues.findAll { == issueLinkTypeName }.last().destinationObject :

def fieldToCopyId =

switch (fieldToCopyId) {
case fieldManager.&isCustomFieldId:
def customField = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(fieldToCopyId)
def linkedIssueCustomFieldValue = linkedIssue.getCustomFieldValue(customField)
issue.setCustomFieldValue(customField, linkedIssueCustomFieldValue)

case IssueFieldConstants.COMPONENTS:
def commonComponents = linkedIssue.components.findAll { in issue.components*.name }

case IssueFieldConstants.FIX_FOR_VERSIONS:
def commonFixedVersions = linkedIssue.fixVersions.findAll { in issue.fixVersions*.name }

case IssueFieldConstants.AFFECTED_VERSIONS:
def commonVersions = linkedIssue.affectedVersions.findAll { in issue.affectedVersions*.name }

issue[fieldToCopyId] = linkedIssue[fieldToCopyId]


But I get unknown methods error. Don't know why...  

Someone could help me. thanks

Hi @Marcela Junyent 

Where are you running this script? and can you share the link from where you copied it?
