Hi @Anna Protopapa ,

for example this one. It is expected that true or false value is returned to determine, it the post function should be executed or not.

Thank you for the answer. I am looking for the code of the condition to be based of the values of select list field and not on an insight insight custom field.

Hi @Anna Protopapa ,

I assume your field has "Select List (single choice)" type. Then you can use something like this - if in custom field with id 12345 option with value "Your Value" is stored, the post function will be executed:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.option.Option
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField

Long customFieldId = 12345
String customFieldValue = "Your Value"

CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
CustomField customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(customFieldId)
Option customFieldOption = issue.getCustomFieldValue(customField) as Option
return customFieldOption?.getValue() == customFieldValue
