Works Perfectly 

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 

def issue = event.issue as Issuedef customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def tgtField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(event.issue).find { == "My CustomField"}
// name of your custom fielddef assignee = issue.assignee // get assignee
def changeHolder = new DefaultIssueChangeHolder()tgtField.updateValue(null, issue, new ModifiedValue(issue.getCustomFieldValue(tgtField), assignee),changeHolder)
// set value of custom field to assignee

The above solution is what I'm looking for to copy across the 'assignee' to a custom label field, in a Listener. But I'm getting a 'class' error for:-


"def issue = event.issue as Issuedef customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()"
"...unable to resolve class 'Issuedef'"
Can anybody help?
