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"))

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

Hi when I try with event.issue as Issue I'm getting static type checking variable event undeclared.

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)
