Hello @Saqib Dar ,

"-1" usually means that the custom field is not set. If it's a required field and you're trying to get the value before the user submits the form, that may be the reason.

You can try to add a check to see if the value is empty before trying to get it:


def companyField = getFieldById("customfield_123456");
String companyFieldValue = companyField. getFormValue();
if (companyFieldValue == "-1") {
companyFieldValue = null;


This will set the value to null if the field is not set.

Hope it helps.
