Copy customfield value from var to var.

I hope you can help me. Maybe i misunderstood something.

I want to set a variable from type customfield with a determined customfield object. If i use getCustomFieldObject, everything works fine. But if i use getCustomFieldObjectByName or getCustomFieldObjectsByName, an error occures:

Script console script failed: 
	at com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueImpl.getCustomFieldValue(
	at com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue$getCustomFieldValue$ Source)
	at Script1142.addFieldValuesToOutput(Script1142.groovy:147)

 And i dont understand, what the problem is in my script:

String sinput = "Serial Number, Assigned Group, customfield_10234"
String[] fields = sinput.split(",")

fields.each {
try {
CustomField cField = null
if (it.trim().contains("customfield")) {
cField = cfm.getCustomFieldObject(it.trim()) // If input is customfield_id
} else {
Collection<CustomField> ccf = cfm.getCustomFieldObjectsByName(it.trim()) // If input is custom field name
log.warn("CustomField: " + (ccf.getAt(0) instanceof CustomField)) // true - it is a customfield
MutableIssue issue = issueManager.getIssueObject("CSR-9588") // Test with a issue
log.warn(cfm.getCustomFieldObjectByName(it.trim())) // Works
log.warn(issue.getCustomFieldValue(cfm.getCustomFieldObjectByName(it.trim()))) // Works
cField = ccf[0] // error
// if (!ccf.empty) cField = ccf.getAt(0)
} catch(Exception e) {
// ...


I hope you can help me.

Kind regards

Hello @Fabian Laqua ,

I tried your script and it is working properly, ccf[0] will return an "ImmutableCustomField". Are you sure you are using correct custom field names ?
