Get issue generic field value by Field object (as in CustomField)

I have a standard jira issue:

com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue issue

and a field object:

com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.Field field

My goal is to get the value of field in issue. I have checked the API and only issue.getExternalFieldValue(field) seems usable, but that is not working (java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException: Not yet implemented).

Note that this problem In case of CustomField is trivial:

issue.getCustomFieldValue(field)

Any update on this issue?

Unfortunately, I don't work with JIRA for the last 3 years, so I didn't figure it out sad
