Get custom field value in web-item context

Basically I'm trying to predefine some values with URL.

<web-item key="has-defect" name="has-defect"


<label>Has Defect</label>

<link linkId="issueaction-has-defect">/secure/CreateIssueDetails!init.jspa?ppid=$;pid=$;issuetype=27&amp;lname=Defect&amp;customfield_10056=$issue.getCustomField("customfield_10056").name




Assume I hava an Issue with custom field "Some Custom Fied" value in it, is it possible get it's value from issue like I'm getting for example Assignee: $issue.assignee.

I've already tried : $issue.getCustomField("customfield_10056").value;



Thanks for your time.

Can you try the below one.


This is how you get the Customfield value in any plugins(postfunction/ condition etc)

Nope, doesn't work. I think that there are no $customFieldManager object in web-item context.
