How to get custom field name in the Email Template using script runner?

Hello All,

I was able to get custom field(text) value with the below script in custom email script runner in workflow transition post function.

Custom message here: <% out <<issue.getCustomFieldValue(com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Custom Field Name")
) %>

 Output is as below:

Custom message here: Test123

But i want to replace Custom message here with custom field name.

Ex - Custom field Name: Test123

Is it possible? Please help.

Thanks in advance,

Hi mani@123 

Sorry if I did not understand clearly, but you're already using hard coded custom field name.

com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Custom Field Name")

Here, Custom Field Name is the name of the custom field.

Anyway below code gives you the name of the custom field.

com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Custom Field Name").getName()

You can also get custom field name by custom field ID


 where customfield_10xxx is the ID of the custom field.

I hope I was clear.



Thanks Tuncay
