Set a Jira custom field with the attribute value from a selected object - Condition

We use "Set a Jira custom field with the attribute value from a selected object" post function in a workflow. We need to have a condition based of the values of select list field. Ca you give me an example?

Thank you,

How can the attribute name:  both "xyz" and Let us say "ABC" from the Insight object must be in the Approver field of the ticket. ? 

If I do it your way with the post function with one another. It first sets the XYZ as approver and than overwrites the approver with the "ABC" that doesn't fit. 

So, how can i set the attributes XYZ and ABC attributes from the Insight object  in the Approver field ?

May I ask, how did it got working?
I´m trying to use the same post-function to copy a object attribute (type select) into a text field and no matter what I try, the target text field has no value.

Thank you and best regards,

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
