You probably mean script in context of script runner plugin, so

def cfX = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager.getCustomFieldByObject("X")
def value = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cfX)

This widget could not be displayed.

For example:

I want to CF 'TestCustomFieldA', make a script that sum +1 to value of another CF called 'TestCustomFieldB'. You have to make this script and apply in TestCustomFieldA:

def test = getCustomFieldValue("TestCustomFieldB")

if (test) {

float number = TestCustomFieldB.getValue()

number = number + 1

return number



return null
