Script Runner send email transition post function: Add custom field values in mail title and body


I can't find the right syntax to put custom fields values of an issue in an email generated by a scripted post function transition.

I am using JIRA 7.1.7 and script runner 4.3.1.

Many thanks for your help,


Best regards.

Hi Guillaume

Here is an example (add it in the Email template or Subject template)

def customFieldText = com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Custom TextField")
def customFieldTextValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(customFieldText)
Value of $customFieldText is: $customFieldTextValue

Hit preview in order to see how the email will look like

This works fine for me, but I have a question. I need to put value of user custom field. It throws me the username of the user instead the full name. Is there a way to extract the full name instead?


Thank you in advance.
