Hi Amar,
In order to retrieve the component objects from the issue you can use the following line:

def components = issue.getComponentObjects();

In case you need to print out the name of each of the components you can try this:

log.debug ( issue.getComponentObjects()*.name )

try this:

def validator = issue.components*.name.contains('YOURTEXT')



I've used code similar to this in the past

Collection components = issue.getComponents();

       Iterator componentIterator = components.iterator();

           while (componentIterator.hasNext()) {

                      GenericValue component = (GenericValue);

                       String componentName = component.getString("name");

                        String componentId = component.getString("id"); }
