Hi @Maikes 

I guess that what you need is to get the name of the request type instead of his key (the value you got from getCustomFieldValue())

So here you go:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser
import com.atlassian.servicedesk.api.requesttype.RequestType
import com.atlassian.servicedesk.api.requesttype.RequestTypeQuery
import com.atlassian.servicedesk.api.requesttype.RequestTypeService
import com.atlassian.servicedesk.api.util.paging.PagedResponse
import com.onresolve.scriptrunner.runner.customisers.WithPlugin


String requestTypeName = getRequestTypeName(issue)
String scriptFieldResult

switch (requestTypeName) {
case "RequestTypeName1": scriptFieldResult = "Whatever I want to show on this request type"; break
case "RequestTypeName2": scriptFieldResult = "Whatever I want to show on this request type"; break
default: scriptFieldResult = "Whatever I want to show if i dont find any request type with the previous names"
return scriptFieldResult

static String getRequestTypeName(Issue issue) {
RequestTypeService requestTypeService = ComponentAccessor.getOSGiComponentInstanceOfType(RequestTypeService)
ApplicationUser currentUser = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()
RequestTypeQuery requestTypeQuery = requestTypeService.newQueryBuilder()
PagedResponse<RequestType> pagedResponse = requestTypeService.getRequestTypes(currentUser, requestTypeQuery)
return pagedResponse?.first()?.getName()

Forgot to tell I'm assuming that you have JSD 4.0+ (Jira 8.0+), if you are using 7.X it wont work like that (SD API changes in 8.X).

If that's the case don't worry, I'll give you the correct code.
