How to set epic link in Jira using Groovy

I need to set epic link using groovy if a condition is true. I'm using the following script:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getOSGiComponentInstanceOfType(IssueManager.class)
def epiclink = CustomFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_10101") 
issue.setCustomFieldValue(epiclink,"TS-14")

If I set the epic link to null it works,

    issue.setCustomFieldValue(epiclink, null)

Hi Miller,

I believe you will need to pass the issue object of the Epic in order to link it, not the Epic link's issue key.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
def epicIssue = issueManager.getIssueObject("TS-14") // Epic issue key here
def epicLink = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Epic Link")
epicLink.updateValue(null, issue, new ModifiedValue(issue.getCustomFieldValue(epicLink), epicIssue),new DefaultIssueChangeHolder())

Glad to help. Thanks for using ScriptRunner!
