Try this.

FieldConfigManager fieldConfigManager = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(FieldConfigManager.class)

Now I am getting error

ComponentAccessor has not been initialised.

You are writing a Java plugin, right? Are you sure you are not trying to inject ComponentAccessor anywhere?

can you share your code so we can check what is wrong!!

Doing it this way in my SpringBoot application I always get an exception that the ComponentAccessor is not initialized.


ComponentAccessor has not been initialised.


Can anybody tell me what I have to do that the ComponentAccessor will be properly initialized in a SpringBoot environment? Finally, I want to access the CustomFieldManager to work upon CustomFields...


customfieldMap.forEach((k, v) -> {
CustomFieldManager cfm = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(CustomFieldManager.class);
CustomField cf = cfm.getCustomFieldObjectByName(k);


I get this exception even when I explicitely autowire the ComponentAccessor with 

 private ComponentAccessor componentAccessor;

public void setComponentAccessor(final ComponentAccessor componentAccessor) {
    this.componentAccessor = componentAccessor;

...but the ComponentAccessor should be accessed in a static way anyway, shouldn't it!?

yes i am not injecting anywhere

yes i am not injecting anywhere

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;

if (fieldConfigId != null)
FieldConfigManager fieldConfigManager = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(FieldConfigManager.class);
fieldConfig = fieldConfigManager.getFieldConfig(fieldConfigId);

can you try with this

FieldConfigManager fieldConfigManager = ComponentAccessor.getOSGiComponentInstanceOfType(FieldConfigManager.class)

I tried ComponentAccessor.getComponentOfType same error

i have update my anser can you try with that!!
