Check if Issue is a clone during create postfunction (customscript)

Hi,

can I check within a custom script postfunction (directly after create) if an issue is a clone or not?

This would need to do something similar to what was asked earlier about detecting clones in a listener - https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Atlassian-Marketplace-questions/How-to-detect-via-script-listener-if-an-Issue-was-cloned/qaq-p/460724

Most of the answer is the same, except that you won't have an issue history to read, and will need to rely on the summary and/or link being set.

My problem is that i dont want to rely only on the summary, but the link collection of the cloned issue is empty during the create-postfunction (even when i move my custom script at the very end, ofcourse after "issue is created" step).

Collection<Issue> allIssueLinks = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager().getLinkCollection(issue, currentUser).getAllIssues()

=> allIssueLinks.size() is always 0. It works fine in other transitions but not during Create.

After cloning, i can see inside the issue history that first my script is performed and then the link is set afterwards ("user changed the Link to 'This issue clones ...").
