ScriptRunner post-function - Update Approvers in SD Request


Hi community,

I am trying to use a ScriptRunner post-function to clone a SD Request into a new SD Request. In the newly created request, approvers are not automatically added, and therefore I would like to define them in the ScriptRunner cloning post-function.

Here is my code:

def cfChange = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Approvers")
def userManager = ComponentAccessor.getUserManager()
def user = userManager.getUserObject("USERNAME")
issue.setCustomFieldValue(cfChange, user)

But I get this exception:

java.lang.NullPointerException: Cannot get property 'id' on null object

What's the correct way to add a group of approvers in the "Approvers" JSD custom field?

I found this in the official documentation, but it's not helping me much:

Thanks in advance for your help.

I finally found the solution... The Approver field used by the customer was a new translated field. It worked much better using the following:

def cfChange = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Approbateurs")
