Check custom field value in a groovy script

I'm using the code below in a ScriptRunner custom listener.  Bolded in the if statement is a confirmation that the Priority is set to Critical.  That all works so far.  If I wanted to replace the Priority check with a custom field instead (i.e., check if custom field 'Name' is equal to 'Ryan'), how would the code change?  I can't seem to get it to work.

 

import groovy.json.JsonBuilder
import groovyx.net.http.ContentType
import groovyx.net.http.HTTPBuilder
import groovyx.net.http.Method

def change = event?.getChangeLog()?.getRelated("ChildChangeItem").find {it.field == "priority"}
if (change && issue.priority.name == "Critical") {

// code to ping HipChat room

}

You will have to fetch and check for custom field value.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;
 
def customField =  ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObject("customfield_10259");// here replace the ID with ID of your custom field.
 
def value = (String)issue.getCustomFieldValue(customField);	
 
//and now simply check
if(value == "Ryan")

Also, do put the null checks as well.

Thank you so much. That worked!
