Scriptrunner copy custom field values produces error

Attempting to use Scriptrunners built-in script "copy custom field values"

When I run the preview I get 700 issues will be affected, which is correct. However, upon executing, it always comes back with the same error:



java.lang.NullPointerException at com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.impl.MultiSelectCFType.getChangelogString( at com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.impl.MultiSelectCFType.getChangelogString( at com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomFieldImpl.getChangelogString( at com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomFieldImpl.updateValue( at com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomFieldImpl.updateValue( at com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.OrderableField$ Source) at com.onresolve.scriptrunner.canned.jira.admin.CopyCustomField.doScript(CopyCustomField.groovy:203)
Both the source and target fields are the same Field Type (multiselect) and have the the same search template (multiselectsearcher) so I'm not sure what the hang up is.
On my target field there are two different multi select configuration schemes (different lists based on project) do I need to define which configuration to copy to somewhere in the script?

Hi Jeremy,

Could you please let us answer a few questions so that we can try to help you further - like:

  • What version of JIRA are you using?
  • What version of ScriptRunner are you using?

I can reproduce this on my own machine against the latest version (4.3.5) so you have likely found a bug. Perhaps you could raise this with us on our Support Portal: so we can track it through to a fix?

Thanks in advance, Mark.



 JIRA version - 6.3.4

Scriptrunner version

Following your suggestion, I entered this issue on the support portal as well.
