Hide custom field when issue in certain status


Can somebody help me with this. I need to hide custom filed type (html) when issue arrives in certain status.

I'm trying to do that with Behaviors plugin as following 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;
import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser
import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FieldBehaviours

ApplicationUser currentUser = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser();

def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def cField = getFieldById("customfield_12345")

if (Issue.getStatus() == "TOTO"){


else {



But in does not work. I have configure the behavior to my project and custom field as in example here 

What I'm doing wrong ?

Thanks in advance !

Hello @oks

When you add a behaviour to a field then the script is triggered when the field is changed. But in your case your hiding the field only when the status changes, thus your script should be triggered on the status change and need not be linked ot the field. 

My suggestion to you is to add the script in the "initializer function" instead of mapping it to a field and for issue object use - 



if (underlyingIssue.getStatus().getName() == "<Your status here>") {
 //hide the field you want

Hi, thank you for answer !

I added the script to "initializer function"  instead of field section and changed to 


like that 

if (underlyingIssue.getStatusObject().getName() == "MyStatus"){

But field is still visible when ticket is in "MyStatus" or changed status to "MyStatus"  :(
