Problem Getting FormField by ID (returns null) Edited

Hi guys !

I'm trying to create a script with behaviour (server-side script),

but the problem for me is im getting null from getFieldById("fixVersions));

or either getFieldByName("Fix Version/s");

neither FormField instead of def fixVersions = getFieldById("fixVersions");

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.project.version.Version
import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FieldBehaviours
import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FormField
import com.atlassian.jira.project.version.Version

Issue issue = event.issue;

Collection<Version> version = issue.getFixVersions();
def fixVersion = getFieldById("fixVersions");
//def values= fixVersion.getValue();

def values = fixVersion.getValue() as List<Version>

if(values == null || values == "" || !values){

for(int ver = 0; ver < version.size(); ver++){
boolean isReleased = version[ver].isReleased();


fixVersion.setError("Cant Assign Issue To A Released Version !");

} else{

any help solving ?

Thank you!

Hi Shachar, welcome to the Atlassian Communit!

Have you tried:


I had to look it up but that is used in the vendor's documentation on this page

Hi Charlie, thanks for the reply, Yes i have tried even copying the documentation code, doesnt seem to catch the field event.

tried getFieldChanged aswell, same result.

affter adding a version, this is the result from the script runner logs :

---- Form field ID: fixVersions, value: null.


i have read the decomentation over and over haha.
