Hi Falk

Have you try to perform integrity checker see whether does it helps or not ?

Make sure you select all and fix any inconsistent data.

Hello,

thx for the answer.

The integrity checker found no inconsistencie. An other idea?

Falk

what are the custom field type? i mean source and destination field types!

if is it possible share your code it will help to debug

No problem.

to copy:

private void updateCustomField(Long customFieldId, Object value, Issue issue) {
	IssueManager issueManager = ComponentManager.getInstance().getIssueManager();
	CustomFieldManager cfManager = ComponentManager.getInstance().getCustomFieldManager();
	MutableIssue mutableissue = issueManager.getIssueObject(issue.getKey());
	CustomField cf = cfManager.getCustomFieldObject(customFieldId);
	mutableissue.setCustomFieldValue(cf, value);
}

Get Value:

com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.customfieldtypes:multicheckboxes
value1 = getCustomFieldValueObject(de.enums.ScoringField.SCORING_FIELD1.getId(), issue);

de.plugin:wilken-total-score-readonly-custom-field
value2 = getCustomFieldValueObject(de.enums.CustomField.TOTAL_SCORE.getId(), issue);

The copy works. I get the error during clone an issue.

Hello,

i found the reason of the nullpointer: i clone an issue with custom-field in another project. In this target project the custum-fields ar not defined.

Question: how can i define custom-fields for this target-projet in a plugin.

Regards

Falk
