Create Custom Listener to Know if a story is updated

H..I am using Script Runner and I need to create a custom listener to know if a story issue is updated and if yes, I need to check if the description field (which is not a custom field ) is updated. I tried finding a solution but I am stuck since most of the solutions indicate in how to update a custom field..where as I dont want to update anything here and just want to know if a field is updated by someone..

also, I am confused if I have to use 

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue 


import com.atlassian.jira.event.issue.IssueEventListener 


def issue = event.issue as Issue


Please suggest a solution if possible.

You can get what was changed with the following code:

int i =0

Hi @Alexey Matveev _cPrime_. Thanks for resp. So if I have to check for a single field.i.e description field..which is not a custom field...can I write it as 




? to check if a particular issue (story) is updated? Any leads on it?

No, you can not write like this. 

changeItems.getAt(i).get("field") returns the name of the field. You can log the changeItems varable and have a look at its structure.

You should define your listener for the Update Issue event.
