I am trying to manipulate MailingListCompiler.java to export some issue's properties as X-Headers in the e-mail's subject to facilitate filtering in the mailing clients.
I have a custom field of multi-group picker type that I would like to export it. Therefore, I am using the following lines of code:
CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentManager.getInstance().getCustomFieldManager(); CustomField customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Group Name"); Object customFieldValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue( customField );
And here starts my problem. I am trying to copy the "customFieldValue" object's value to a StringBuffer and immediately after include it in the e-mail's subject field but I get a value like [com.atlassian.crowd.embedded.impl.ImmutableGroup@xxxxx].
I believe my problem is that I cannot handle properly the customFieldValue as Group object.
reading the API documentation (https://docs.atlassian.com/software/jira/docs/api/5.2.11/com/atlassian/jira/issue/Issue.html#getCustomFieldValue%28com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField%29), I notice that method getCustomField returns:
"A custom field's value. Will be a List, User, Timestamp etc, depending on custom field type.".
So my question may be a little bit more targeted, what will be the return value for a "multi group picker"? Is it going to be a "Group" type? Something else?
