Error while comparing date custom field with current date

Hi Team,


I am trying to add a scripted validator in workflow, to throw an error when customfield date is in future date (greater than current date).


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import groovy.time.TimeCategory
import java.util.Date
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import java.text.SimpleDateFormat

def cf1 = getFieldByName("Change Start Date / Time")
Date date = new Date()

Date DateVal1 = (cf1.value as Date)
//Date DateVal2 = (cf2.value as Date)

if (DateVal1.getTime() > date) {
cf1.setError("Change Start Date Cannot be in future while moving to implemented")


I am getting the below error:

2021-03-23 16:50:33,355 ERROR [workflow.AbstractScriptWorkflowFunction]: Workflow script has failed on issue MDTCM-2384 for user 'HK31'. View here:
groovy.lang.MissingMethodException: No signature of method: org.codehaus.groovy.jsr223.GroovyScriptEngineImpl.getFieldByName() is applicable for argument types: (String) values: [Change Start Date / Time]


Can someone help me to debug the issue here

I am able to achieve the solution for the above query with a JQL validator.


However, we don't want the validator any more, but a pop-up message (warning) need to appear whenever the Custom Date field is greater than the current date during the transition.

Can we achieve this?
