How can I use a custom field while Comment Issue Action in Jira Automation?

Hi All,

I have a user picker custom field that I am trying to use in Jira automation module for user followup.

What I have right now is :

Type: JQL Filter Trigger
JQL expression : project = ABC AND status = "Awaiting approval"
CRON schedule : 0 */1 * * * ? *

Comment Issue Action : 

Hi ${issue.get("Owner Name")} , This is a followup reminder ....


But this ${issue.get("Owner Name")} doesnt work. It just appears as text in the comment, rather than resolving to some value.

Can someone please help me with the options that I can use here.


Thank you,
