ScriptRunner: determine whether a select list (single choice) custom field matches a specific value

I am trying to add a validator to a workflow which prevents the issue from moving forward if the value selected in a select list (single choice) custom field is still set to the default. 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def cfManager = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager
def cf = cfManager.getCustomFieldObject((Long) 11517) 

if (cf != "Not Complete") {
log.warn ("This field must be updated to close this ticket.")

The validator is currently blocking the issue from moving to the next status in the workflow no matter what value is selected.

Try this:

The InvalidInputException function lets you throw an error to the user

"customFieldValue" - return the field value as a string and then you can check the value.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.opensymphony.workflow.InvalidInputException

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
String customFieldValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(11517 as long))

if (customFieldValue == "the default value") {
invalidInputException = new InvalidInputException("This field must be updated to close this ticket.");
return null
