The variable [invalidInputException] is undeclared

I have a scriptrunner script, and all seems well until the last line:

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
import com.opensymphony.workflow.InvalidInputException;
import org.apache.log4j.Category;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField;
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;

def Category log = Category.getInstance("com.onresolve.jira.groovy.PostFunction")

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager();
def cf1 = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectsByName("New Hire Account provisioning");
def nhap = cf1.iterator().next();
def nhapvalue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(nhap);

log.setLevel(org.apache.log4j.Level.DEBUG);
log.debug("NHAp: ${nhapvalue}");

if (nhapvalue == "Egencia")
{
invalidInputException = new InvalidInputException("Don't forget to provide the full legal name.")
}

----------------------

I get the message "[Static type checking] - The variable [invalidInputException] is undeclared." I've used this exact structure in another script, and it works flawlessly; I'm baffled as to why it isn't working here. Any ideas?

Hi Maya. 

If it is a static type error, does it mean that you haven't actually run it yet? Do you mean that you are getting one of the small red crosses in your code?

If so, that could mean that it isn't broken at all. Could you save the script and run it?

Please indicate where both of the scripts are located. It's likely that one of the locations has InvalidInputException already within scope, whereas the location you're trying to use it in now does NOT have it in scope.

The other script is in a post-function on a Resolve transition, whereas this one is in a post-function on a Create. So yes, it could be that there's something already in the other workflow that allows it to work. So how do I bring this one in scope?

Perhaps just trying defining the variable? 

def invalidInputException
if(name='aCoolName'){
invalidInputException = new InvalidInputException("Please provide the full legal name")
}
