Hello! The situation is this: I need to output the selected string value from the child's drop-down list to another field. here is the code


import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventDispatchOption
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.view.CustomFieldParams
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.option.Option
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.view.CustomFieldParams
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.impl.CascadingSelectCFType
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue

def IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager();

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def cfNFeed = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject('customfield_12404')
def direction = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cfNFeed)

def v_bus_direction = direction.split(';')[0]
def bus_direction = v_bus_direction.split(':')[1]
def v_work_direction = direction.split(';')[1]
def work_direction = v_work_direction.split(':')[1]
def v_type_work = direction.split(';')[2]
def type_work = v_type_work.split(':')[1]

String parent_new_value = bus_direction.toString() + ": " + work_direction.toString()
String children_new_value = type_work.toString() - "]"

def changeHolder = new DefaultIssueChangeHolder()
def customField = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObject("customfield_11117")
def fieldConfig = customField.getRelevantConfig(issue)
def parentOption = ComponentAccessor.getOptionsManager().getOptions(fieldConfig)?.find { it.toString() == parent_new_value }
def childOption = ComponentAccessor.getOptionsManager().findByParentId(parentOption.optionId)?.find { children_new_value }

def newValue = [:]
newValue.put(null, parentOption)
newValue.put("1", childOption)
customField.updateValue(null, issue, new ModifiedValue(issue.getCustomFieldValue(customField), newValue),changeHolder)
