how do I set a custom field value in groovy for a field that is of type scripted???

this is what I have and it doesn't seem to work.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue;

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager


CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager();

CustomField CReqTypeField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName('Customer Request Type');

def rt = issue.getCustomFieldValue(CReqTypeField);

CustomField ReqTypeField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName('Request Type');

MutableIssue issueToUpdate = (MutableIssue) issue;


IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager();

You do NOT set a custom field value in a scripted field, those are mutually incompatible things.

Are you trying to use a scripted custom field, OR are you trying to set the value of a custom field that can hold data?
