How can I use Groovy Script to get an issue id in a post function? issue.getId() returns null Edited

I'm sure I'm overlooking something simple, as getId() seems to be exactly what I should need.  I've tried issue.getID(), getKey(), etc, to no avail.


import groovy.sql.Sql
import java.sql.Driver
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
/* I've tried with and without this declaration as well
Issue issue = issue
// All of these return null. I need to retrieve the id for use in a SQL query later in the script. log.error("id: " + issue.getId()) // returns null log.error("key: " + issue.getKey()) // returns null log.error("number: " + issue.getNumber()) // returns null log.error("issue: " + issue) // returns the Summary field of the issue

I'm an idiot.  The reason it was returning null is because the Custom Script post-function was being called before the "Creates the issue originally" post-function.  Re-ordering the post-function calls resolved this.

Hopefully this saves someone else some time in the future.
