Get cascading select value


I have a script-post-function on some transition and need to get value (1 level) from the cascading select list,  and, depending on the value assign issue to some user. 

Could you please help with this? 


I've tried to compare like 

if (cfValues['Custom Field']?.get(null) == 'val1')
 issue.setAssigneeId('user 1') 

but as I understood this method works only in validators.

ok, for JIRA 7 the following works: 

CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
CustomField cf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Custom Field")
Map cfVal = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf) as Map
String value = cfVal.get(null)

if (first == 'val1')
issue.setAssignee(ComponentAccessor.getUserManager().getUserByName("user 1"))

I would reccomend to use 

issue.setAssignee(ComponentAccessor.getUserManager().getUserByName("user 1"))

imstead issue.setAssigneeId('user 1')
