Custom field in Script Runner Post function comment linked issues

Script runner offers post function Adds a comment to linked issues when this issue is transitioned.

There is example value 

Blocking issue $issue resolved with resolution <% out << issue.resolution?.name %>

How it is possible to reference value of issue (the one being transitioned) in the comment?

For example if custom field is called "Deliverables" and it is multi line string field.

You can use the following syntax in the template to write Groovy code:

&lt;% out &lt;&lt; issue.getCustomFieldValue(com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Deliverables")) %&gt;

Its not pretty but this is the way to do this. In the next release of ScriptRunner 4.3.6 we will be making this easier in the send custom email script so keep a look out for that.

Please see here for more information on Groovy templates:

Works perfectly, thanks.
