Copy scripted field in create post function

Hi there,

I want to copy a scripted field to a normal field during the post-function of the create step.

But it seems, that the scripted field is always null, even when I place the copy action as the last post function after the event?

Any ideas how to resolve this?

Thanks,
Thomas

What (plugin or script) are you using to copy the field?

It s the Misc Workflow Extentions, but I ll take any other you suggest :)

Or is there somewhere a script runner snippet for doing that?

That's odd... it only gives me a non-null value when I use the following way of getting a custom field value. No idea why:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()

MutableIssue issue = issue

def cf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("My Scripted Field")
issue.description = cf.getValue(issue)

And I have to have that script as the first post-function. It's pretty simple to copy a custom field, you may need to write a short script for it.
