Not seeing custom field values in .getFroms()

I have a Groovy custom listener in which I am trying to parse the history to see if a custom field (text type) has changed. The guts of the code I have looks like this:

def chiList = chm.getAllChangeItems(issue).reverse();

for (def chi in chiList) {

log.debug "Field is "+chi.getField()+" changed from "+chi.getFroms()+" to "+chi.getTos().toString()


What shows up in the log is:

Field is IP Version changed from [:] to {}

Field is IP Version changed from [:] to {}

Field is status changed from [1:Open] to {6=Closed}

I'm not seeing any values in getFroms or getTos maps. Can someone help me?

Why aren't you using the getChangeItemsForField method? I am guessing this should return a list of ChangeItemBean for a particular custom field too right? Or is it just for system fields?

def historyItemList = changeHistoryManager.getChangeItemsForField(issue, "status");

What is getFroms and getTos? Are you thinking of getFromString() ?

Can you point to the javadoc for these methods...?

changeHistoryManager.getAllChangeItems(Issue issue) returns a list of ChangeHistoryItem.

ChangeHistoryItem has the methods getFroms() and getTos()

Oh yeah. So what is chm? If you keep updating the field, do you get more and more debug lines? Can you post your entire code?

I have figure a different approach to my problem, but chm is below.

ComponentManager cm = ComponentManager.getInstance()

def chm = cm.getChangeHistoryManager()
