Hi Taras,

Have you tried using double quotes on the cutomfield name?

Also, why don't you use Automation to add a comment on transition? That's more intuitive in my opinion and maintenance is transparent, doesn't require any sripting knowledge :)

Hope either suggestion will help!


yes, i tried, there is the same error. I can not use automation because it is a Software project. I can not understande why it not work.

Understood, then you can't use the line above directly: CustomfieldManager is not a static class and needs to be instanciated. I'm not sure why you out the customfield value but I'm sure that you'll need more than this to use CustomFieldManager.

That would imply something like:

CustomFieldManager cfm = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager();
CustomField cf = cfm.getCustomFieldObject('customfield_10806');

Does that help?


thanks for your answer but it also doesn't works. Maybe i must use transientVars? i set value to this field in transition screen.
