Well a lot of things have changed since jira 7 with the removal of ComponentManager. 


A quick fix could be to use 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.pico.ComponentManager

But that is in no way a long term solution.

Hi @Juhaina Almama ,

You should use import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor instead of the deprecated ComponentManager method.


thanks for answering

I used it but I get error:


These are not errors, but generally warnings indicating the deprecated methods. You may need to replace them with the ones compatible with the current version of your JIRA.


Use getCustomFieldObjectsByName(String) instead of getCustomFieldObjectByName
