Custom script post-function does not work


I want to set a customfield value based on another's field selection. I will copy the first letter of the selcted option of the customfield "Time to Benefit" (it's a number). Further, i want to calculate with this number later one, that's why I change the string to a double.

def cf = issue.getCustomFieldValue(componentManager.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Time to Benefit").substring(0, 1).toDouble());
def cd = issue.getCustomFieldValue(componentManager.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Value"));
issue.setCustomFieldValue(cd, cf);

now it works:

def cf = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Customfield");
def cd = DOuble.valueOf((issue.getCustomFieldValue(ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Value"))).getValue().substring(0, 1));
issue.setCustomFieldValue(cf, cd);

 Thank you very much for your help!!


Best regards,


Hi Louisa,

Few things are not right here.

def cf = Double.valueOf(((Option) issue.getCustomFieldValue(ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Time to Benefit"))).getValue().substring(0, 1));

Above line gives you the double value of the first letter of field "Time to Benifit"

def cd = issue.getCustomFieldValue(ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Value"));

This gives you the value of field "Value"

issue.setCustomFieldValue(cd, cf);

This doesnt work as the setCustomFieldValue takes two arguments, CustomField and value for customfield, and in your case both arguments are values to some fields.



Hi Vijay,

Thank you for your fast response!

The following code works:

def cf = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Customfield");
issue.setCustomFieldValue(cf, 3 as Double);

 However, your first suggested line to get the first character of the selected option and convert it into an double does not work. Do you see any mistakes i made?

That's how I implemented your code:

def cf = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Customfield");
def cd = Double.valueOf(((Option) issue.getCustomFieldValue(ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Value"))).getValue().substring(0, 1));
issue.setCustomFieldValue(cf, cd);


Best Regards,
