Hi 

The script below can give you an idea of how to get the first linked issue's custom field value. 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
def issueLinkManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager()
def loggedUser = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getUser().directoryUser
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()

def issue = issueManager.getIssueObject("issue-key")
// Get all the linked issues
def allLinkedIssues = issueLinkManager.getLinkCollection(issue, loggedUser).allIssues
 
//Check if list is empty or null
if (!allLinkedIssues)
	return 
def firstIssue = allLinkedIssues[0]
//Get the custom field with the specific name
def tgtField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(firstIssue).find {it.name == "customField-name"}

return firstIssue?.getCustomFieldValue(tgtField)

 

You can also have a look, what the issueLinkManager can give you (depending on your case).
