Is there a way to set a custom field value with script listener


we would like to set a custom field value on an event. At the moment, we already have a script listener sending out email notifications. Can we add setting the field to this listener?

And: If we can, please give a hint on how to set it.

Below Groovy example is to set text Custom Field

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager();
def cf1 = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(issue).find { == 'cf1Name'};
def changeHolder = new DefaultIssueChangeHolder();
cf1.updateValue(null, issue, new ModifiedValue(issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf1), 'newCf1Value'), changeHolder);;

Does Groovy script do this only after user Submits the form?

Is there any event fired right after a field is modified (new option selected, text filled in) that Script Runner can catch it even before the form submitted?
