I believe that the console is just a java interpreter and is not "aware" that the issue object will be defined at execution time. That is why it is showing a warning that it is not declared. Also your code is fine, it works in groovy (which is meant to have more simple syntax).

Thanks for the explanation of the console.

It would be better something like issue.getProjectObject().getName() but your code should work. I don't see an error, and I have just put your code in a postfunction and it works. Nevertheless I have experienced some kind of hangs with scriptrunner script console from time to time, so I would try to log out and log back in, closing the browser and even clearing the browser's cache. 

String org1_val = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf_org1) I have the same error but was unable to solve the issue. any leads @Juan Ramón Alonso @Jon Kocen
