With the changes to JIRA api how do you get custom field in email template (script runner, workflow script))

This no longer works in JIRA :

<% out << 

So how would one get the custom field value using component accessor ?

This is for the email template inside the workflow with the script runner plugin.

Thank you.

This is the actual way that works.

Thanks to @Tuncay Senturk [Snapbytes] you have pushed me in the right direction, however I fought there would be an easier way to achieve that.


<% def customFieldManager = com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager() %>

<% def customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("MyField") %>

<% def field = customField.getValue(issue) %>

Output MyField : <% out << field %>

Thanks a lot!

Try this:


I think unfortunately you will need the FQCN, ie: com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

Here is getting field and field value
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_11300")
// or 
// def customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("MySelect"))

def fieldValue = customField.getValue(issue);
