getBehaviourContextId is null

When I attempt to replicate the behaviors script from this example, I can't seem to get a result from the getBehaviourContextId function.

/rest/com.onresolve.jira.plugin.Behaviours/1.0/behaviours/validators.json [com.acme.CreateSubtask] web item clicked:null

Here is the code I currently have:

import org.apache.log4j.Logger
import org.apache.log4j.Level
def log = Logger.getLogger("com.acme.CreateSubtask")

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
log.debug "web item clicked:" + getBehaviourContextId()
if (getBehaviourContextId() == "cr-doc-bug") {

def contextIssue = issueManager.getIssueObject(getContextIssueId())

getFieldById("summary").setFormValue("Issue created from ${contextIssue.key}").setReadOnly(true)
getFieldById("issuelinks-linktype").setFormValue("relates to").setReadOnly(true)

I did map the behavior to the target project, I think:

Any thoughts?

Try to use 


in runInit() method

We have the same exact problem. 

Have you been able to make a workaround?

We have also the same problem. I worked in jira 7.8, but it doesn't work in 7.11. Have you found a workaround?
