ScriptRunner, post-function script, changing issue security by custom-field value, how?

Creating: "Custom script post-function"

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager;

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue;


GroupManager groupManager = ComponentManager.getComponentInstanceOfType(GroupManager.class)

if (cfValues['selectBoxCustomField']?.value == 'Value1') {
} else if (cfValues['selectBoxCustomField']?.value == 'Value2') {
} else if (cfValues['selectBoxCustomField']?.value == 'Value3') {
} else if (cfValues['selectBoxCustomField']?.value == 'Value4')) {

cfValues['selectBoxCustomField']?.value == 'Value1' fires exception. How can I retrieve "selectBoxCustomField" value?

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def cf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Name of select box field")

def optString = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf)?.value
if (optString == "Value") {
else if (...) {

Thank you! 

I've just found solution myself, but yours is shorter:


import com.atlassian.crowd.embedded.api.User
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue

MutableIssue issue = issue

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def textFieldCf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("GRS area")
def cfvalue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(textFieldCf)

String value = cfvalue.toString()

if (value == 'value1') {
} else if (value == 'value2') {


that will fail when there is no option set... so mine uses ?
