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.

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
