access epic link value from behviour in create issue in epic screen


I want to hide some issue types if creating an issue in an epic ..  like epic itself. 

I am trying this by trying to access the auto-filled-in "epic link" value from a behavior ( initialiser) when creating an issue from an epics "create issue in epic" using the "+"


def epicLinkField = getFieldById('Epic Link')

log.debug("epicLinkFieldvalue:" + epicLinkFieldvalue )

I get 

Form field ID: Epic Link, value: null

I want to hide some issue types if the epic link has a value since it will usually only have a value if you are creating an issue FROM an epic.

If you know how to access the epic link value .. or have another suggestion how do hide epics issuetype when creating inside an epic  ..  please let me know 

Thanks in advance
