Hi Basudev,

Is this in a post function ?

Then make sure that you call this function before the "Update change history..." step. If that is not successful, try the script below

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def cfQAContact = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(issue).find { == "QA Contact"}
def qacontact = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cfQAContact)
//issue.reporter should not be null
if(!qacontact && issue.reporter) {
	def changeHolder = new DefaultIssueChangeHolder()
	cfQAContact.updateValue(null, issue, new 	ModifiedValue(cfQAContact, issue.reporter),changeHolder)

Please let me know if this works for you.

I suspect the issue.reporter return to you a user of type OfBizUser. But you want the Application User. You should use userManager to get the Application User, but before I continue could you tell me you JIRA version ?

So, use UserUtil or UserManager to get the ApplicationUser using reporter's name or key. Using UserUtil for example, replace the updateValue with

cfQAContact.updateValue(null, issue, new    ModifiedValue(cfQAContact, ComponentAccessor.getUserUtil().getUserByName(issue.getReporter().getName())),changeHolder)

or in your original script 

issue.setCustomFieldValue(cfQAContact, ComponentAccessor.getUserUtil().getUserByName(issue.getReporter().getName()));

PS. In your original script you don't need to use the .store() if the post function is before the "Update change history..." step.

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
