Update Sprint Field in Cloud with Scriptrunner Post Function


I'm trying to copy the values of a few fields in JIRA Cloud, using a ScriptRunner workflow post function. I got the following code to work to copy Story Points to a customfield:

def result = put("/rest/api/2/issue/${issueKey}")
.header('Content-Type', 'application/json')
fields: [
customfield_10746: issue.fields["customfield_10119"],

However, when I tried to also copy the Sprint field to a custom field called Baseline Sprint, by adding this line:
customfield_10739: issue.fields["customfield_10115"] I get the following error:

2017-10-05 05:56:09.734 WARN - PUT request to /rest/api/2/issue/TRAIN-17 returned an error code: status: 400 - Bad Request
body: {"errorMessages":[],"errors":{"customfield_10739":"Operation value must be a string"}}
2017-10-05 05:56:09.851 INFO - PUT /rest/api/2/issue/TRAIN-17 asString Request Duration: 2218ms
2017-10-05 05:56:09.852 INFO - Run script completed 

Any ideas on how to do this? Again this is JIRA Cloud. Thanks!

I ended up doing this through a script listener, which pulls the most recent sprint from the Sprint field & copies it to a field called 'Current Sprint.' This needs some cleaning up, but it's working for now:


def projectKeys = ['TRAIN', 'MEST', 'CONS', 'FB', 'CAMP']

if (!(issue.fields.project.key in projectKeys)) {

def issueKey = issue.key
def thing = issue.fields.customfield_10115.last().tokenize(',')
def latest_sprint = thing[3].tokenize('=')[1]

def result = put("/rest/api/2/issue/${issueKey}")
.header('Content-Type', 'application/json')
fields: [
customfield_10752: latest_sprint
