How to reference a Custom Field Value in a Confluence Page

Hi guys,

Im trying to post a custom field value in a Confluence Page when a JIRA issue is created (post function). I tried to do to as follows but it didnt work for me.


def cField1 = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_10008")
def cField2 = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_10009")
def cField3 = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_10201")

def writer = new StringWriter()
def xml = new MarkupBuilder(writer)
xml.'ac:structured-macro' ('ac:name': "jira") {
'ac:parameter' ('ac:name': "key", issue.key)

// add more paragraphs etc

xml.p ("${issue.getCustomFieldValue(cField1)}")
xml.p ("${issue.getCustomFieldValue(cField2)}")
xml.p ("${issue.getCustomFieldValue(cField3)}")


I've imported:

import com.atlassian.applinks.api.ApplicationLink
import com.atlassian.applinks.api.ApplicationLinkService
import com.atlassian.applinks.api.application.confluence.ConfluenceApplicationType
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.sal.api.component.ComponentLocator
import groovy.json.JsonBuilder
import groovy.xml.MarkupBuilder
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager


And the error i recieve is:

2017-09-14 17:18:19,174 ERROR [workflow.ScriptWorkflowFunction]: *************************************************************************************
2017-09-14 17:18:19,174 ERROR [workflow.ScriptWorkflowFunction]: Script function failed on issue: SMP-19, actionId: 1, file: <inline script>
groovy.lang.MissingPropertyException: No such property: customFieldManager for class:


Im really stuck here, can someone help me? thanks in advance.

hey Alejandro, 

You will need, after the imports, something like 

def customFieldManager  = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager

Thank you Thanos, It worked perfectly

Hi Thanos,


I resolved the problem with your suggestion but now i want to "italic" the text, and I dont know how to do it, I tried to search something similar in the web but with no luck.


Can you help me with this? (I tried this code below)

xml.p ("<em>${issue.getCustomFieldValue(cField1)}"</em>")
xml.p ("<em>${issue.getCustomFieldValue(cField2)}</em>")
xml.p ("<em>${issue.getCustomFieldValue(cField3)}</em>")
