Copy Value from cascading list to custom field


I am trying to copy first value of cascade select list to a custom text field "Business" and second value to security level.

I was earlier using below groovy on create issue post function to copy first value of cascade list to security level.

import org.apache.log4j.Category
import com.opensymphony.user.User
import com.googlecode.jsu.util.WorkflowUtils
import com.atlassian.jira.ManagerFactory
import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import org.ofbiz.core.entity.GenericValue

def log = Category.getInstance("com.onresolve.jira.groovy.MriskCondition")

ComponentManager componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance()
IssueSecurityLevelManager securityLevelManager = componentManager.getComponentInstanceOfType(

IssueSecuritySchemeManager issueSecuritySchemeManager = ManagerFactory.getIssueSecuritySchemeManager()
IssueSecurityLevelManager issueSecurityLevelManager = ManagerFactory.getIssueSecurityLevelManager()

GenericValue srcProjectGV = issue.getProject()
def issueSecurityScheme = issueSecuritySchemeManager.getSchemes(srcProjectGV).size() == 0 ? null : issueSecuritySchemeManager.getSchemes(srcProjectGV)[0]

User currentUser = componentManager.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getUser()

def sourceFieldName = "customfield_10572"

def sourceFieldVal = WorkflowUtils.getFieldValueFromIssue(issue, WorkflowUtils.getFieldFromKey(sourceFieldName))
sourceFieldVal = sourceFieldVal.getKeysAndValues()

if ( sourceFieldVal != null ) {
def business = sourceFieldVal[null][0]
log.debug("business: '$business'" )
def secLevelGvList = issueSecurityLevelManager.getUsersSecurityLevels(issue.getGenericValue(), currentUser)
def secLevelGv = secLevelGvList.find ({ it.get("name") == "$business"})

if (secLevelGv) {
log.debug ("Set ${issue.getKey()} to $business")
issue.setSecurityLevel (secLevelGv)


Now I want to copy first value to a text custom field and secend value to security level.

Could you please modify above script to solve my problem ?
