Post function - Update Issue Custom Field not setting value


I have recently upgraded to the latest version of script runner 3.1.3, previously 3.0.4. on JIRA v6.3.1#6329-sha1:7df76f1 (I'm guessing that's a bug in its self).

We use a the post function on the creation of a issue to - Update issue custom field - and set a custom field('Resolver Group') to 'Change Management'. this seem to have stopped working since we upgraded. meaning the ticket cannot be created unless we make the field visible on the screen, which we do not want to-do.

Any idea as to why this may have happened?

Any help would be appreciated

I'm afraid I cannot help here. That "Update Issue Custom Field Function" does not belong to ScriptRunner. I'll remove the SR label. Hope you don't mind

No worries, sorry about that. Do you reckon I would get the same results from using a script post function?

yes, you could do the same using ScriptRunner. something like this could do the job if the custom field type is Text: import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField MutableIssue issue = issue def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager() CustomField resolverGroup = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Resolver Group") issue.setCustomFieldValue(resolverGroup, 'Change Management')
