[GROOVY/JQL] How to get to fields in ticket


I try to learn how to work with fields so i wanted to create "handmade" JQL result in table with listed fields but i don't now how to get to these fields. Here is my code:

import com.atlassian.crowd.embedded.api.User
import com.atlassian.jira.bc.issue.search.SearchService
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.jira.user.util.UserUtil
import com.atlassian.jira.web.bean.PagerFilter
def jqlSearch = "project = JIRA"
SearchService searchService = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(SearchService.class)
UserUtil userUtil = ComponentAccessor.getUserUtil()
User user = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()
IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
def result = "<table style=\"width:100%\">"
SearchService.ParseResult parseResult =  searchService.parseQuery(user, jqlSearch)
if (parseResult.isValid()) {
    def searchResult = searchService.search(user, parseResult.getQuery(), PagerFilter.getUnlimitedFilter())
    issueManager.getIssue(searchResult).each{issue ->
              result += "<tr><th>" + field1 + "</th>" + "<th>" + field2 + "</th>" + "<th>" + field3 + "</th></tr>" //fields are just for example what i want to get
} else {
    log.error("Invalid JQL: " + jqlSearch);

And I know that "issueManager.getIssue(searchResult).each" is wrong but i couldn't find anything similar.
If someone could show me how to at least get one field to this i would be really grateful,

Here is code to get value of custom field with name "field name"

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField

CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager();

CustomField field1 = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("filed name")

return issue.getCustomFieldValue(field1);

Note, that this is only for custom fields. For build-in fields (like issue type, priority) it it requred to use method of Issue class.

That help with field problem but i still don;t know how to use
IssueManager.getIssue(searchResult).each or can you advise me any smiliar method smile?

Hey, @Maciej Olszewski. Take a look at the first example on https://scriptrunner.adaptavist.com/latest/jira/recipes/misc/running-a-jql-query.html. That should give you an idea how to get some JQL results and grab the issue object from them.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.search.SearchProvider
import com.atlassian.jira.jql.parser.JqlQueryParser
import com.atlassian.jira.web.bean.PagerFilter

def jqlQueryParser = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(JqlQueryParser)
def searchProvider = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(SearchProvider)
def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
def user = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getUser()

// edit this query to suit
def query = jqlQueryParser.parseQuery("project = JRA and assignee = currentUser()")

def results = searchProvider.search(query, user, PagerFilter.getUnlimitedFilter())

log.debug("Total issues: ${results.total}")

results.getIssues().each {documentIssue ->

    // if you need a mutable issue you can do:
    def issue = issueManager.getIssueObject(documentIssue.id)

    // do something to the issue...
