What is the syntax to get a custome field value during a transition?

let me elaborate :

I have a screen that shows a custome field which the user can change, I would like to get the updated value of this field in a groovt scirpt I'm running as part of the transition.

Try something like the following

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField;
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager;

CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager();

CustomField customField_test = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject( id );

def test_value = issue.getCustomFieldValue( customField_test )

Don't I need to use something with transientVars ?

Yes you could use it. A related question is here

I think the script i have provided will do the job for you if the sequence of postfunctions is right. Test it first. I use something similar in some postfunctions and works fine.

cfValues['Name of field'] should work

The regular way as suggested here worked just fine .

When do one need to use transientVars["issue"] ?

may be


It works for

transientVars["issue"].Summary etc

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
ComponentManager componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance()
CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = componentManager.getCustomFieldManager()
cfParent = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName('Computer Needs')
parentMyFieldValue = transientVars["issue"].getCustomFieldValue(cfParent)
