Custom Field Value Is Always Blank

I have created a rule that will update a custom field based on the description. This successfully works, but when I try to include the value of the custom field it is always blank. I have two rules, one to update the custom field and another rule that will trigger an email. I thought because they are two different rules that it was the problem, but I created a test rule to update the customer field and then log the value of the custom field. It always returns empty.

Here is how I tried logging the value:

  • {{issue.fields.customfield_13141}}
  • {{issue.fields.customfield_13141.value}}
  • {{customfield_13141.value}}

My rule:

  • When: Issue created
    • For Current issue
      • Description contains
        • Severity: Critical
      • Then: Edit issue fields
        • Severity
      • And: Add value to the audit log.
        • {{issue.fields.customfield_13141}} {{issue.fields.customfield_13141.value}} {{customfield_13141.value}}

Hi @Michael 

Is the custom field you are trying to log the same field that you just modified within the rule?

If so, I believe it is logging the original value (at the point of trigger), not what you changed.  Please try adding a Re-fetch action after the edit and before the logging.  That reloads the issue into the rule context before proceeding.

Best regards,
