Delete a customField from an issue

Hi everybody,

I would like to delete a customfield of my issue with a groovy script only on a particular case (if my employee is in the category "permanent employee", i wish delete the customfield "contract end date" of my issue). Is it something possible ?

Otherwise I should clear my field.

Hi,
you can do 

yourCustomField.setHidden(true)

Fields are either displayed or not displayed based on issue type or project. You can't delete it on a case by case basis.

I assume you don't really mean "delete", but just "blank out or empty the date of a field"?

A scripted listener is the best way to do that, it can listen for issue changes, check if your employee field has changed, check the new employee's category and set the customfield value to "null" if appropriate.

Thanks for your answer guys, the best way to do what i wanted to do is to hide the field like Aleksander said. :)
