How to get another ticket description in "Create sub task" script post-function



I'm working with "Create sub task" script post-function and made automatic change of summary and description by following code in "Additional issue actions" section:

issue.summary = issue.summary + ' Perform initial tuning'
issue.description = 'Please perform initial tuning of a new client.'

This works perfect but I would not like to hardcode issue summary and description but prefer to take it from another ticket (it will be template ticket which is kept in different project). I've tried following code:

issue.summary = issueManager.getIssueObject("FOO-5").summary
issue.description = issueManager.getIssueObject("FOO-5").description

I did the same in Groovy script (with import of IssueManager class) and it works but in script post-function it doesn't work.

Could you advise me how I can get description and summary of other already created issue in "Create sub task" script post-function?

Looks like I'm able to do it with following code (forgot to import proper classes):

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
MutableIssue xIssue = issueManager.getIssueObject("FOO-5")
issue.summary = xIssue.summary
issue.description = xIssue.description
