Scriptrunner listener variable [ issue ] not declared

Trying to populate a date customfield from another date customfield on CustomFieldUpdated Event. Copied some of this code from other posts. I am getting variable [ issue ] not declared error.

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.event.issue.field.CustomFieldUpdatedEvent
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager

//def issue = event.issue
CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()

customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Audit Original Testing Due Date")
, customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Audit Testing Due Date"))

Replace //def issue = event.issue with 

def issue = event.issue as Issue

Sorry, forgot to mention I tried that earlier. The error I get with "def issue = event.issue as Issue" is "Cannot find matching method"method error.png

You cannot use setCustomFieldValue when running it as a listener. In a listener you need to use updateValue, like this:

textCf2.updateValue(null, issue, new ModifiedValue(issue.getCustomFieldValue(textCf2), myval),changeHolder)

Tried this earlier. No errors on the inline script editor, but the other field also does not get updated. Code below:


import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager

def issue = event.issue as Issue
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def tgtField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(event.issue).find { == "Audit Original Testing Due Date"}
def changeHolder = new DefaultIssueChangeHolder()
tgtField.updateValue(null, issue, new ModifiedValue(issue.getCustomFieldValue(tgtField), customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Audit Testing Due Date")),changeHolder)


There are no errors in the log

Have you tried getting the target field by using 

def tgtField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Audit Original Testing Due Date")

Thanks for the suggestion. Just tried this. No errors in log, but the code has not been called by the listener for CustomFieldUpdated Event
