Update a single issue picker using the issue key - groovy


Hi all,


I have to update the single issue picker (custom field name = Test Linking) based on the issue key (TEST-130) but no luck. I am getting the below error when logging.


def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
def issueTest_130 = issueManager.getIssueObject("TEST-130")
def myval = cFieldValue

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
MutableIssue issueTest_130_= (MutableIssue) issueTest_130
def textCf2 = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(issueTest_130).find { == "Test Linking"}

log.debug("textCf2 : "+textCf2)
log.debug("textCf2 : "+textCf2.getClass())

if (textCf2) {
def changeHolder = new DefaultIssueChangeHolder()
textCf2.updateValue(null, issueTest_130_, new ModifiedValue(issueTest_130_.getCustomFieldValue(textCf2), myval),changeHolder)
log.debug("testcf2 is updated")
