My understanding is, you need a post function to set this custom field value based on the project name. For example, if project name is 'abc', then the field alfrageteilnehmer has to be set as 'tg'. Am I right?

If not please explain.

That's right, that's what I'm want.

Please try this and let me know the results.

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.comments.CommentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.atlassian.jira.util.ImportUtils
import com.atlassian.jira.user.util.DefaultUserManager
import com.atlassian.crowd.embedded.api.User
	IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
	CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
	CustomField myCustomfield = 	customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("alfrageteilnehmer")
	if(issue.getProjectObject().getKey() == 'ABC'){
	myCustomfield.updateValue(null, issue, new ModifiedValue(issue.getCustomFieldValue(myCustomfield), "tg"),changeHolder);

This code doesn't work, bev´cause the expression have to retun "true".

You have to do it this way.

It works, thank you very very much. Your post was the hint I needed to finde the solution.

Glad that it worked. That script I had shared will work directly to set the field value via a scripted post function (instead of returning a true boolean value for a condition in a built-in post function.) However, you made it work for the second scenario. Congrats! smile

To be more precise, I was checking the project name and setting the field value on my own in the script. It works in the scripted post function option.

No sorry, it doesn't work. The function must return 'true'

I've tried to return true, but doesn't work, don't understand what to do here.
