Script Listeners - Adding the 'parent' issue key to the summary of cloned issue & setting custom field values

We are using Jira 5.0.4 and Script Runner 2.0.7

I'm using the Script Listeners - Clone an Issue and Links

I want to clone an issue, and using 'Additional Issue Actions' include the original issue key in the summary of the new issue and clear down some of the custom fields.

I have two issues :-

1. Is it possible to access the original issue in the Additional issue actions ?

2. When setting the custom value using the example given I get a class cast exception (This field is configured as Radio Buttons)

def cf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(issue).find { == 'Reapply Issue'}


Any suggestions?

For the custom field you need to find the relevant Option object.

To get the parent issue key it's in transientVars I believe - "log.debug transientVars" and see what's in there.

Thanks for the prompt reply. Unfortunately I'm really a novice at this so please bear with me

Parent Key: unfortunately the transientVars are null by this stage.

Custom Field: any clues on how to find the Option object?

Thanks in advance
