Wyt is wrong with Issue object which is not recognised ?

Dear all,

I have the following script which is store in a file named SlackUser.groovy

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.comments.CommentManager

import groovy.json.*
import static groovy.json.JsonOutput.*
import static*
import static*

class SlackUser{

Issue refIssue

//Field defienition constant to be read from issue
String emailFieldName="Email Address" //10523
String emailField=""
public String emailFieldValue=""
CommentManager commentMgr=ComponentAccessor.getCommentManager()

SlackUser(Issue issue)

def customFieldMgr=ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()

emailField =customFieldMgr.getCustomFieldObjects().findByName(emailFieldName)
emailFieldValue=refIssue.getCustomFieldValue(emailField) <<< error


Then I am calling that script from my Script console as below :

Issue refIssue=ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().getIssueObject("TSD-2102")

SlackUser slk=new SlackUser(refIssue)

When the SlackUser object is created, I get a wierd error in the BOLD line above saying :

"groovy.lang.MissingMethodException: No signature of method: com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueImpl.getCustomFieldValue() is applicable for argument types: (java.lang.String) values: [Email Address] Possible solutions: getCustomFieldValue(com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField), setCustomFieldValue(com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField, java.lang.Object) at ServiceRequest.SlackUser.<init>(SlackUser.groovy:53) at"


What is wrong and how to solve that error ?

Where is this script running? 

As I explain in my description thexscript which is building the reference object is called fron the script console

Sorry, I missed that in the wall of text.

The problem is that you are forcing the emailField to be a string, when it isn't one.
