Key of the selected issue.

getNullFieldsbooleanNoFlag for specifying whether the fields with null values should be retrieved too. If not specified, it defaults to "false".

Example

Example 1

string[] fields = getIssueFields("DEMO-1");
return fields["summary"];

Example 2

We can use the routine to partially clone an issue by copying only some of the fields from the original issue:

string[] fields = getIssueFields("TP-1", true);
string issue = createIssue(fields["project"], fields["parent"], fields["issueType"], fields["summary"] + " - part 2");
%issue%.customfield_10000 = fields["customfield_10000"];
%issue%.description = "Partial clone of issue TP-1";
return issue;
