How to update custom field value?

Hello everyone!, here's my issue:

We have two customf fields:

Customfield1=> Date Type

Customfield2=> Label Type

Objective is after transition to closed status, customfield2 get updated automatically from customfield1 value, i. e.,

if customfieldvalue1  = 11/20/2015

then customfieldvalue2 = 201511   (YYYYMM format)


I tried a DB trigger approach, but dashboards didn't get refreshed until reindex.

Then, I tried go for a Post Function approach, but can't get it.


I'm using "Script Post-Function"=>

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.IssueChangeHolder

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue

CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = componentManager.getCustomFieldManager()

IssueChangeHolder changeHolder = new DefaultIssueChangeHolder();

Issue issue  = issue

def cfPrId = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(issue).find { == 'Customfield2'}

cfPrId.updateValue(null, issue, new ModifiedValue("do_something_to_customfield1_to_obtain_YYYYMM_format", issue.getId().toString()), changeHolder);


Please any advice would ver appreciated!

Hi Tito,

Try to get the issue through the event (Issue issue = event.issue)

PS. Try to use componentAccessor instead of componentManager

So your only problem is - How do I get a String in 'YYYYMM format' from Customfield1=> Date Type?
