Using a Scriptrunner REST Endpoint, I would like to get the value of a customfield which is of the type Hideable Text Field and will also set a value for this field. This is the call that fails:
def value = issue.getCustomFieldObject( "the hideable customfield_xxxxx" )
The error is:
java.lang.NullPointerException: Cannot get property 'name' on null object
The following statement returns true
customFieldManager.isCustomField("the hideable customfield_xxxxx")
Using other text fields types function properly.
Any guidance on why hideable types are not working for this scenario would be appreciated.
This may depend on the context that you have the custom field set to. Is it set to Global Context? Can you try changing it to a particular project and observe the result?
