How can I get rid of this error?

what jira version?

JIRA version is 6.3.1

Is this in an email template? I don't think you can do imports with GStringTemplateEngine.

No This is not inside an email teplate. It is a post function configured in a specific state transition. This function was working perfectly with JIRA 6.1 and the old version (2.1.16) of scriptrunner. 

Can you reproduce this in the script console? Or is it specifically in post-functions?


I am not able to reproduce the error in script console because 
of another error before reaching the codeline with instanceof ... 


No such property: transientVars for class: SendPreDeliveryMail

groovy.lang.MissingPropertyException: No such property: transientVars for class: SendPreDeliveryMail at SendPreDeliveryMail.run(SendPreDeliveryMail.groovy:370)

that's understandable, but you can test it with just that single import as the entire script.
