Get cascade field value

I have a behaviours script and following requirement:

If user select values of cascade field as "Peter" (first option) and "New York" (Second option) then I can see the hidden field.

Can someone please help me?

def tid = getFieldByName("Name and Location");

def monthlyMaintenance = getFieldByName("Is this for monthly network maintenance");


if(tid.getValue() == "'Peter','New York'"){

Hi All,

Following code has worked for me but ensure the cascading custom field is available in the screen you are working on,

For Behaviour:

def cfield = getFieldByName("cascading custom field name")
Map mapValue = cfield.getValue() as Map
def value1 = mapValue.get(0).toString()
def value2 = mapValue.get(0).toString()

For Post Functions:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectsByName('cascading custom field name').getAt(0)
def cstFldVlue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(customField)


Works for me !

thanks !

Please accept the answer. Thanks.

Hi @devsuresh2005 - I tried your solution and it was slightly incorrect.

value2 should use 'get(1)' instead of 'get(0)'  ;-)

Yay, thanks @devsuresh2005 for this - tried several other posted solutions that didn't seem to work, this one's doing it!

I use the following in a ScriptRunner post function. I'm not sure if it'll work in a Behaviour, but maybe it'll at least get you headed in the right direction.


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

String unit,category,emailDestination

CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
CustomField cf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Unit and Category")
Map cfVal = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf) as Map

if (cfVal) {
String first = cfVal.get(null)
String second = cfVal.get("1")
unit = first
category = second
else {
unit = ""
category = ""

Hi Payne,

I can't get it to work :/

I saw a lot of post like yours that cast 


To Map or Hashmap or ....

But  in my case, I don't know why I can't do it. The compiler cast automatically my issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf) to Double and it can't overwrite this cast.

I can't understand why, but my field value is always 0.0 (with or without value in the field)

When i put this in my code :

Map cfVal = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf) as Map

I have this error :

org.codehaus.groovy.runtime.metaclass.MissingMethodExceptionNoStack: No signature of method: java.lang.Double.isEmpty() is applicable for argument types: () values: [] Possible solutions: identity(groovy.lang.Closure), isNaN(), inspect(), dump()

 When i try another thing i saw in a different post (but similar) :

log.warn(((Map<String, String>) issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf)).get(null))

I have this error :

Cannot cast object '0.0' with class 'java.lang.Double' to class 'java.util.Map'

 As I was saying, even if it display an error in the "pre-compiling" I can run this code well :

log.warn issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf).floatValue()

and I have this result :

[runner.ScriptBindingsManager]: 0.0

 Do you have any idea that could make 

Map cfVal = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf) as Map

works ?
