Get transientVars in scriptrunner behaviour


Is it possible to retrieve the transition ID when a transition screen is shown and a behaviour would run on it? How could I do that?

I have a couple of transitions which use the same screen. Depending on the transition, I would like to set different default values for a field on that screen.

Best Regards,

Hi @Marius

you can use methods


or  getAction() for the ActionDescriptor from within a Scriptrunner behaviour when the screen is used by a workflow action.

This will throw an exception if the screen is used outside of a workflow so enclose in a try/catch block


Hey Tom!

Thanks a lot!

I'm now using getAction().id == xxx and it worked perfectly.

All the best
