Hi Jan,

 

Make sure that your post-function is after the built-in "Creates the issue originally." post function, as it seems that you are executing the script which is using the "issue" variable even before the issue has been created.

Thanks man... that was so obvious... smile 

Now i have diferent issue... i want to insert Assignee in email content - and i get:

Dear  <% out << issue.assigneeUser?.displayName %>,
