Accessing custom field input using script runner

Hi is there any means to access the information we enter in to the custom field we enter. Say a text box or a drop down. Can we read the value entered into a custom field using script runner.

SR lets you use the whole of the internal java API directly, which, of course, has to be able to read custom fields.

Depending on where your script is running, you may use different methods, but in most cases you will be using something like

issue.getCustomFieldValue( <custom field object> )

You may find it useful to spend a few minutes looking at - it's got loads of examples of scripts for all sorts of things, certainly including working with fields
