Hello Tasher,

This has already been answered by another adaptavist member here, if you need further assistance setting the behaviour, or you want another example more relevant to your case, let us know.



How can i get the component value ??

Hello Tasher

As shown by the accepted answer in the previous link, you could do:

FormField fieldFF = getFieldByName("YOUR CUSTOM FIELD NAME HERE");
String fieldValue = fieldFF.getValue();

I would also recomend that you take a look at the behaviours documentation, which is filled with examples that might help you.

Good luck and if I can help you anymore let us know.


Unable tout resolve class FormField 

I have this error i need to get thé name of component

may I please take a look at your full code? 

instead of using FormField, use def:

have your last 2 declarations in line 6 and 7 to be:

def fieldFF = ...
def fieldValue = ...

Now i don't have error on the code but it don't work 

A colleage has said that you could use the IDs instead of the names, might work better.

You can do that like this:

import static com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueFieldConstants.*
def ff = getFieldById(COMPONENTS)

How to have the id of the component ??

copy and paste the code that I just sent you, the ID comes in the import that you see on the first line of the code, that import defines the variable COMPONENTS which will contain the ID of the component

It's the some without error but it don't work

At line 4:


Will be a Collection of ProjectComponent , not a String, since . That could be why it isn't working.

What can i do!?

Hello Tasher.

Next time, please copy and paste your code instead of taking a picture of your screen, it will be better for us both :)

Here is the code, it should work:

import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FieldBehaviours
import groovy.transform.BaseScript
import static com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueFieldConstants.*

@BaseScript FieldBehaviours fieldBehaviours
def ff = getFieldById(COMPONENTS)
def values = ff.getValue()*.getName()
def component = getFieldbyId("customfield_15001")
def nameV = getFieldbyId("customfield_15004")
def quality = getFieldbyId("customfield_15007")
def company = getFieldbyId("customfield_15006")



If it doesn't let us know



Error on Line 7 : spead operator can only be used on collection type1496831962321-1542449449.jpg


Please stop sending pictures, it makes it very hard to replicate your code because I have to type it, copy and paste it. 

That gives you an error because the editor cannot tell that ff.getValue() will return a collection. Just update the code ignoring that error. It should work.



It was funny "Please stop sending pictures," and this guy didn't get it. Thanks for the code. It worked! 

Hi Jay. Which code?
