Scriptunner seems to calculate all scripted fields at CREATE issue?

I'm developing 4 scripted fields. 2 of them are in the default screen of the task issue type, and 2 of them in the default screen of the sub-task issue type.

At CREATE ISSUE as well as CREATE SUB-TASK, my logs shows all 4 scripts are calculated. But I expect only 2 at each event.

Why is this the case, and how to control which scripted field is calculated at issue- and at sub-task creation?

Jira 7.4.4, Scriptrunner 5.3.26.

Thanks in advance, Jo

It is odd that you get all four when creating a top level issue, I would expect only the fields for that issue to be calculated.

Getting four on the sub-task is expected though.  You can think of scripted fields as being calculated when an issue is indexed, and when you create a sub-task, the parent is indexed as well.

You can't change this behaviour, it's always going to run the scripts.
