Send an email if a select custom filed has changed Edited


I am trying to use the send custom e-mail post function that will send an e-mail only if a select custom filed was updated. Update can be at any time, not only on transition execution. I have the following script:


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
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue

Issue issue = issue

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
def customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Domain")
def originalIssue = issueManager.getIssueObject(

if (issue.getCustomFieldValue(customField) != originalIssue.getCustomFieldValue(customField)){
if ((issue.getCustomFieldValue(customField))== 'Integration'){
return true

However, the condition is always resulting in false even if the value of the "Domain" custom filed is changed.

Can you help me to detect the change of the custom field?
