Groovy Script for a new Field?

MY requirement is that i wanted to just pull the value of "Σ Remaining Estimate" to another scripted field created by me. This will be a Scripted field. I believe it can be possible. Please let me know if you want any other info.

Use the below script to a scripted field.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueImpl
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue

def Est = issue.getEstimate()
List<IssueImpl> subTasks = issue.getSubTaskObjects()
if (subTasks != null){
	subTasks.each {	subTask -> 
	def EstVal = subTask.getEstimate()
	if(EstVal != null)

IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def tgtField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(issue).find { == "Customfield Name"}
def changeHolder = new DefaultIssueChangeHolder();
tgtField.updateValue(null, issue, new ModifiedValue(issue.getCustomFieldValue(tgtField), Est.toString()),changeHolder);
Change the "Customfield Name" to the name of the target custom field.

Hi Mahesh,


Getting the below ERROR:



No such property: issue for class: Script6

groovy.lang.MissingPropertyException: No such property: issue for class: Script6 at
while running the script.
