Calling REST Api from within script-runner post-function (and needed libraries)

I couldn't edit my original question to be more clear, so I am rewording it as a new question.

I am experimenting with script runner in a post function in one of my projects. I want to get a dump of all fields of theissue , which I can then pass to an external too for some processing.

I know I can do something like this:

def curl = "/usr/bin/curl -u foo:bar"

def output = curl.execute().text

This does give me a variable ($output) containing populated fields for the issue that I can plug into a bash script I have on the server for parsing, etc.

However, I am trying to see if I can do something similar from straight within groovy, without a call to some external tool.

Any advice? I am a groovy noob, so if you have any examples, please let me know. I have some examples online, but they seem to call libraries that I don't have (guessing they were written for stand alone groovy, and not script runner..?)

There is probably a better way to go about this, but I ended up doing the folowing to get system and custom field data:

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;

// gets a reference to the IssueManager and CustomFieldManager manager classes
IssueManager issueManager = ComponentManager.getInstance().getIssueManager();
CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentManager.getInstance().getCustomFieldManager();
// gets a reference to the desired issue and custom field
Issue issue = issueManager.getIssueObject( "FOOBAR-100" );

def cflist = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(issue);

def map = new HashMap<String,String>()

cflist.each {cf ->
Object value = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf)
    map << [(cf):"$value"]


def systemfields = issueManager.getIssue ("FOOBAR-100")  //getting GenericObject since it seems to contain issue fields

map << systemfields   // left-shift systemfields map into map to create consolidated map

//Example showing line by line output:
map.each{ k, v -> println "${k}::${v}" }

do you have any idea why this is not working with -X PUT? GET is working fine...

def curl = "/usr/bin/curl -u FECRU_CREDENTIALS -H Content-Type:application/json -H Accept:application/json -X PUT -d FECRU_DATA FECRU_REST_API"

Can any one show how to send post request with data to JIRA to update or insert issue from Java client.
