why i cannot create an issue when using send custom email post function?

Hi,

i'm using send custom email post function in order to send an email to a non Jira user when creating an issue.

In the script runner tests everything works fine.

When i'm trying to do that on production i got the following error:

Error creating issue: Property 'cfValues['Username']' not found

In the email template i'm using the 'cfValues['Username']' in order to take the value of the username custom field.

When i'm not using the post function issue creation has no problem.

The error log is the following:

Issue creation was interrupted because the way that i was looking for the cf value was wrong. So the next post functions weren't executed. The correct syntax for taking the value of a custom field in the email using the send a custom email post function is:

<% out << cfValues['cf_name'] %>

Yeah, cfValues is indexed by field name not by cf ID. I thought this would be easier for non-techies and might make things more portable when moving configurations from dev to prod etc.

I've also tried a workaround that i found on the wiki

<% out << cfValues['customfield_xxxxx'] %>

but gives a null value back

What mail handler are you using?

The default one
