How do I copy a multi-user picker field to watcher field using Script Runner plugin on jira-cloud? Edited

Hi, I am trying to copy the values in the multi-user picker field to watcher field in JIRA cloud but the value I am getting is always null. Here is the implementation:

def input1CfId = 'New Watchers'
def outputCfId = 'Watchers'"${input1CfId}")"${outputCfId}")

def customFieldUsers= get('/rest/api/2/issue/' + issue.key).
asObject(Map).body['fields']['New Watchers']

def input1 = issue.fields[input1CfId]
def input2 = issue.fields[outputCfId]"${customFieldUsers}")"${input2}")

def output = input1"${output}")

if (output == (issue.fields[outputCfId])) {"already been updated")

//.queryString("overrideScreenSecurity", Boolean.TRUE)
"watchers" : [
"name" : output
