Groovy script for adding watchers based on custom field value

Hello

I am working on a script to add watchers to an issue on creation based on a custom field value.  I am using this on a multi select field, so ideally it would add watchers for each selection in the multi select field

 

Script (part of it that seems to be getting caught in errors):

MutableIssue mutableIssue = (MutableIssue) issue;

def application = mutableIssue.getCustomFieldValue('customfield_12610');

 

    if(application.equals("BL")){

        watchUsers(BL_users);

    }

    if(application.equals("FOC")){

        watchUsers(FOC_users);

}

 

Error:

I'm guessing your asking why you get that error? (You didn't state it clearly). Here's why:

You wrote mutableIssue.getCustomFieldValue('customfield_12610'), but MutableIssue (or better: Its implementation IssueImpl) does not have such a method which accepts a custom field id as a String. Groovy even tells you what method you should use instead:

Possible solutions: getCustomFieldValue(com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField)

You have to give the CustomField object as the argument, not just its id. To get such an object, use the CustomFieldManager:

  • CustomFieldManager#getCustomFieldObject(String)
  • or CustomFieldManager#getCustomFieldObject(Long)
  • or CustomFieldManager#getCustomFieldObjectByName()

Any way to know what this script should look like for a single field value?
