Get event type- script listener


I would like to create a script listener.

In the start of the code, I would like to put a condition that sends true only if the specific event was updating the 'fix version' system field.

How can I find the type of the event= which field was updated and triggered this script listener.


Thanks for your help :)

Hello @Dan27

You could find event type via evenTypeManager

Here is example:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def eventTypeManager = ComponentAccessor.getEventTypeManager()
def eventTypeName = eventTypeManager.getEventType(event.eventTypeId).getName()
log.error("EVENT TYPE NAME --> "+ eventTypeName) 

Hi @Mark Markov , Thanks!

The output is 

Issue Updated

 I would like to get the field that was updated, in my case- 'Fix Version'

Than you ll need to listen for field changes on issue_updated event, not events itself

Here is example

def change = event?.getChangeLog()?.getRelated("ChildChangeItem")?.find {it.field == "Fix Version"}
if (change) {
log.error "Value changed from ${change.oldstring} to ${change.newstring}"
// your actions if the field has changed
