Adaptivist Custom Script Listener Not Working, What am I doing wrong?

I am trying to loop through a set of custom fields, and if any of them contain the words "Fail" I want to update another custom field with todays date. HEre is my code.

I must be doing something wrong, so would some like to educate me?

 

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.manager.OptionsManager

def componentManager = ComponentManager.instance
def optionsManager = ComponentManager.getComponentInstanceOfType(OptionsManager.class)
def customFieldManager = componentManager.getCustomFieldManager()
 
def myFieldList = ["Official Last Date of Attendance (OLDA) P/F","Date of Determination P/F","Funds Used in Calculation (P/F)", "Rate of Progression (P/F)", "Institutional Charges v2", "CB Amount (P/F)", "GOP Amount (P/F)", "PWD Amount (P/F)", "Return to Lender (P/F)"];
for (myFieldName in myFieldList)
{ def tempCF = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName(myFieldName);
def tempVAL = targetIssue.getCustomFieldValue(tempCF);
if (tempVAL?.value=="Fail"){
def paymentDate = new Date()
def tempDFC = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Date Form Completed");
if (paymentDate){ 
def cal = new java.util.GregorianCalendar();
cal.setTimeInMillis(paymentDate.getTime()); 
cal.add(java.util.Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH, 0);
def newDFC = return new java.sql.Timestamp(cal.getTimeInMillis()); 
issue.setCustomFieldValue(tempDFC, newDFC)
} 
else { 
return null 
}}
}

You should start with types of these custom fields. Are you sure that are all return string?

Yes they do. They literally all have the same options: Pass or Fail

I refactored your code and comment some lines with strange instructions:

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

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()

def myFieldList = ["Official Last Date of Attendance (OLDA) P/F"
                   ,"Date of Determination P/F"
                   ,"Funds Used in Calculation (P/F)"
                   , "Rate of Progression (P/F)"
                   , "Institutional Charges v2"
                   , "CB Amount (P/F)"
                   , "GOP Amount (P/F)"
                   , "PWD Amount (P/F)"
                   , "Return to Lender (P/F)"];
//Variables should be defined before loop 
CustomField tempDFC = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Date Form Completed");
CustomField tempCF;
Option tempVAL; 

for (myFieldName in myFieldList){  
    tempCF = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName(myFieldName);
    tempVAL = (Option) targetIssue.getCustomFieldValue(tempCF);
    if (tempVAL?.getValue() == "Fail"){
        def paymentDate = new Date()
        
        if (paymentDate){ //what this line for
            def cal = new java.util.GregorianCalendar();
            cal.setTimeInMillis(paymentDate.getTime());
            cal.add(java.util.Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH, 0);
            //def newDFC = return new java.sql.Timestamp(cal.getTimeInMillis()); //here is return from methos
            issue.setCustomFieldValue(tempDFC
                    , new java.sql.Timestamp(cal.getTimeInMillis()))
        }
        else {
            return; //what this line for
        }}
}
