Getting Custom Field Value in ScriptRunner Scripted Field

I'm trying to get the value of a Script Field in another Script Field using the code below, but for some reason the script is failing as can be noted by the second not being called.

Is there an alternative way of getting the value?


def issueLinkManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager();
def cfManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager();
def cfTeam = cfManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_13205");
def cfTheme = cfManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_13203");

for (IssueLink issueLink : issueLinkManager.getInwardLinks(issue.getId())) {
if (issueLink.getIssueLinkType().getId() == 10702) {'before');
def theme = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cfTheme);'after');
return theme;

Hey Ron!

Without looking at your logs, all I can guess is that cfTheme is returning null for whatever reason, causing an exception to be thrown. Looking into your atlassian-jira.log file may provide you with some insight here.

However, the only way that this would be a problem is if either the cf didn't exist, or you accidentally typed in the id wrong. Assuming the latter, try using this method to get the custom field object instead:

def cfm = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager
cfm.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Name of CF")//Input: Name of the Custom Field

Try that out and see if you still have the same problem.

If the issue persists, try to log out the contents of the custom field to see if it's returning what you expect it to.

Let me know what you find! :)


Hi Aidan,

The value of cfTheme is not null as I'm able to output the field name and description via a log call.
