I have a post function script which creates a new issue(of different issue type), in the new issue I have to set the value of a multi select custom field to its default value (during the new issue creation).
So in order to get the default configured value for a custom field the way to do will be something like
def cf = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("CustomFieldName")
def givenIssueContext = new IssueContextImpl(issue.projectObject, issue.issueType)
def globalContext = IssueContext.GLOBAL
// depends on your cf configuration use the globalContext or the givenIssueContext
def fieldConfig = ComponentAccessor.fieldConfigSchemeManager.getRelevantConfig(IssueContext.GLOBAL, cf)
def defaultValue = cf.getCustomFieldType().getDefaultValue(fieldConfig)
Hope that helps, ping me if you have any more questions.
I think it is simpler to set a default value for the field in a standard Jira configuration. You can read here more about it
