What error message are you getting? Is it possible that the custom field is empty and returning null. This would cause an error when you call getEmailAddress. You could write this line as 

def recipient = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf)?.getEmailAddress()

This would return null to recipient if the field is empty. Then you would need to handle the null value.

Bu the way, getCustomFieldObjectByName is deprecated, so you might want to get into the habit of using getCustomFieldObjectsByName("Gestor Imediato")?.getAt(0), which does the same thing. 

Hi @Derek Fields ,

i have one similar requirement, "need to send the notifications to users in a multi picker field


Hi @RichardA 

Thy this:

final String cf = "UserPickerMultiSelect"
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager
def cfObject = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(issue).find { == cf }
def cfValList = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cfObject)

def emailAddr = cfValList*.getEmailAddress().join(",") // provides email address of users selected in UserPickerMultiSelect custom field.
