How can I add groovy custom field validator on the workflow transition using field id?

I have two custom fields with the same name, but having different custom field types. One is number field, another is select list.

I cannot reference second one in my workflow transition validator. If I use condition

cfValues['Week number'] == ''

, it references number field instead of select list field

If I use condition with custom field id

cfValues[11270] == ''

or

cfValues['customfield_11270'] == ''

, it does not work either

You won't be able to use cfvalues, you have to use issue.getCustomFieldValue(CustomField) etc.

Personally, I don't think it's great practice to have two CFs with the same name associated with the same issue. Makes searches hard for one thing.

Just curious, can you address the number field by its ID? You're checking for an empty value in a select list...usually the select lists do have option values like "-1" for "none"...
