How to concatencate custom fields into summary on "Create"

Hi Atlassian Community!

Hopefully someone could help me out here. I need assistance on populating two custom fields into the Summary field that I will hide on my screen during the filling out of the issue/ticket.

I found this script online, but I'm having issues implementing it via Script Runner.

package UpdateIssue
 
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
 
CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager();
 
issue.setSummary(customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName(“Legal Name”).getValue(issue).toString() + "/" + customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName(“Project Name/Code”).getValue(issue).toString())

I added this script by editing my workflow, going to Post Function in "Create."

When adding Post Function,  used "Script Post-Function, and added the script (above).

Now, I'm receiving this error below.

The following log information was produced by this execution. Use statements like:log.info("...") to record logging information.
2017-11-30 14:13:00,637 ERROR [workflow.ScriptWorkflowFunction]: *************************************************************************************
2017-11-30 14:13:00,648 ERROR [workflow.ScriptWorkflowFunction]: Script function failed on issue: null, actionId: 1, file: <inline script>

Possible solutions: getCustomFieldObjectByName(java.lang.String), getCustomFieldObjectsByName(java.lang.String)
    at UpdateIssue.Script18.run(Script18.groovy:9)

 

Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, 

What version of ScriptRunner are you currently using? You may need to make a few changes depending on that.

Hi Jenna,

Thanks for chiming in, I'm using ScriptRunner v5.2.2. and Jira v7.2.6.

Hello, 

Thanks! 

After-reading your question I realized you're trying to do this on the create transition, which I don't think will actually work unfortunately.

I would recommend following the suggestion to use behaviours in order to do this from this question:

Please let me know if you need any more help!
