Scriptrunner Behaviour on description on issue creation and if a component is selected



I would like to know if it's possible to prefile with a behaviour the description field only if a component is selected (for exemple if component selected = A then description = A else description is empty).

I have already this code but i don't know how to filter on component selected event:

def desc = getFieldById("description")
def issueType = getFieldById("issuetype")

def defaultStory = """
def defaultBug = """\
def defnull = """ """
if (getActionName() == "Create" && issueContext.projectObject.key == "PROJ"){

if ( =="Story"){
else if ( =="Bug"){
else {
else if (getActionName() == "Create" && issueContext.projectObject.key != "PROJ") {

Could you help me on this subject?


Thank you in advance.

Mickael - It sounds like you are on track. Try to go over the program again and see if you can work it out. I'll do the same and see if I can come up with something as well. 

Good Luck!
