you need to update the issue after setting the fields.

where you are writing this script in workflow postfunction?

Yes, i am running it in the post function

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager;

import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventDispatchOption;


ComponentAccessor comAcc=new ComponentAccessor();

CustomFieldManager cfm = comAcc.getCustomFieldManager();

CustomField customField1 = cfm.getCustomFieldObjectByName("FirstName");

CustomField customField2 = cfm.getCustomFieldObjectByName("LastName");

MutableIssue issue=(MutableIssue)transientVariables.get("issue");

String fname=issue.getCustomFieldValue(customField1).toString();

String lname=issue.getCustomFieldValue(customField2).toString();


if (issue.getSummary.contains(fname) && issue.getSummary.contains(lname)){

issue.setSummary("Joiner:"+ issue.getSummary);



issue.setSummary("Joiner: "+fname+" "+lname);



JiraAuthenticationContext authContext = comAcc.getJiraAuthenticationContext();

comAcc.getIssueManager().updateIssue(authContext.getLoggedInUser() , issue, EventDispatchOption.EventDispatchOptionImpl.ISSUE_UPDATED , true);



catch(Exception e){




The above kind of Java code worked for me.

The issue should be Mutable Issue and also the customfield are of text type.

Hi Bharadwaj,

It did not worked exactly because of lots of dependencies.. but it really helped in understanding a lot of new thing and Now I have developed a script of my own which is working as per the requirements.

Thanks a ton for all the Help.
