how to get custom field data from a cloned issue via script runner

Hi all,

I use Script runner and a scripted send custom email post function for source issue. I would need to get and be able to add in the email's body custom field values of the cloned issue. But I only find codes related to source.issue.

Is there a way to retrieve values of a cloned issue + JIRA References to send them from the parent issue ? I can't find how to define the link of a cloned issue via JQL. I tried "cloners" but it did not work.

Any ideas?

many thanks for your help

You need to use IssueLinkManager. Here is a code exsample how to find that just one of it is closed

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue

Issue issue = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().getIssueObject("ZVER-1")
if(issue == null)
    return "no such issue"

for(IssueLink issueLink: ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager().getOutwardLinks(issue.getId())) {
    //if(issueLink.getId() == 34) //place issue link id here
        return false
return true


Thanks for your answer.

As i'm pretty new to this I'm not really to understand where I have to paste this code. Do I have to create a script field to get this value or can I paste it in teh send custom email script ? I tried to do this and the email is not readable.

Just to be sure I'm looking for custom field values which are in issues that have been cloned




i found a pretty similar request as mine : to which you answered @Vasiliy Zverev

I pasted the code in a script fiedl I created but I don't get any result. I replace the user value with Admin and the custom field ID. For my request, I would like to retrieve the following values from issues that have been linked (in my case, it will be issues which are cloned) to gather them into only one field :

  - JIRA reference of cloned issues

  - one custom field

Could you please help me build this script ?

Many many thanks in advance


Pay attention that there are outward and inward links. Are you sure that you use correct one?
