Hi @Javid Huseynli

Looking at your code, I assume you are doing this from a Post-Function. 

You could try something like this:-

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager

def sampleEmail = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectsByName('Sample Email').first()
def sampleEmailValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(sampleEmail) as String

def textToList = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectsByName('Text to List').first()
def textToListValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(textToList) as String

issue.setCustomFieldValue(textToList, "${textToListValue} ${sampleEmailValue}".toString())

Please note that the sample code provided is not 100% exact to your environment. Hence, you will need to make the required modifications. 

Below are the screenshots of the Post-Function configuration:-

1) When creating the Post-Function select ScriptRunner's Custom script post-function as shown below:-


2) Next, add the code as shown below.


Next, save the config and publish the changes.

Below are a few test screenshots:-

1) Create a new issue and enter some values into the text fields as shown below and create the issue.


2) Once the ticket is created, you will notice both the fields have their respective value, as shown below:-




I hope this helps to answer your question. :)

Thank you and Kind regards,


Thank you very much. Resolve that, i only need (.to String)
