Change custom field from groovy postfunction


My environmaent is JIRA v6.4.7 and ScriptRunner v3.1.4

This code of postfunction dosn't change custom field's value.

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.IssueChangeHolder

import org.apache.log4j.Category
def Category log = Category.getInstance("set-KAM.groovy")

Issue myIssue = issue

// getting src value
def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def cfClient = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_12700")
def cfClientValue = myIssue.getCustomFieldValue(cfClient)

def projectManager = ComponentAccessor.getProjectManager()
def projectObject = projectManager.getProjectObjByName(
def projectLeadName = projectObject.getProjectLead().getDisplayName() // String

log.debug("XXX ClientName: " +
log.debug("XXX Lead:   " + projectLeadName)

// updating tgt value
//def cfKAM = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_21803") //tesfield, single raw
def cfKAM = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(myIssue).find { == "KAM"} //tesfield, single raw
def changeHolder = new DefaultIssueChangeHolder();

log.debug("XXX KAM before: " + myIssue.getCustomFieldValue(cfKAM)) // null
cfKAM.updateValue(null, myIssue, new ModifiedValue(myIssue.getCustomFieldValue(cfKAM), projectLeadName), changeHolder)
log.debug("XXX KAM after : " + myIssue.getCustomFieldValue(cfKAM)) // null :-(

Could anybody provide working method to update custom field?

Thank you!

Did you try below?

myIssue.setCustomFieldValue(cfKAM, value)

Exactly! It's Working!

Thank you, @Tuncay Senturk [Snapbytes]!
