Hi @Maksim Smetannikov

addLabel() doesnt work . Its asking to check if the method exists .

Sorry,  Jagadish

I did not notice that the label field is custom. For a custom field of type label, the answer will look like this:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.label.LabelManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventDispatchOption


def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
MutableIssue issue = issueManager.getIssueObject("MYP-1")

def currentUser = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def customLabelFieldID = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_10100").getIdAsLong()
def labelManager = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(LabelManager)

labelManager.addLabel(currentUser, issue.getId(), customLabelFieldID, "123", false)
ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().updateIssue(currentUser, issue, EventDispatchOption.ISSUE_UPDATED, false)
