In ScriptRunner for JIRA: Cannot find method getFieldByName


I am trying to follow an example from the ScriptRunner's manual ("Select Lists with Other") and get a field object:

def componentField = getFieldByName("product_component")

I paste it to the script console and immediately get an error, "Cannot find matching method".

Shall I import some library?

I added the following imports:

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager 
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField

def componentField = getFieldByName("product_component")

but it did not help.

Please assist.

You can only use getFieldByName and the various other methods in the documentation in that section with the behaviours functionality.

If you need to get a custom field from the Script Console you should use:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()

def issueKey = "TEST-1"
def issue = issueManager.getIssueObject(issueKey)

def productCf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("product_component")

def productValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(productCf)

Hope this helps.
