Catch "Issue Delete"/"Issue Move" events in scriptrunner listener


Hi all,

I'm trying to setup a scriptrunner listener that is linked to two types of issue events:

- Issue delete

- Issue move

When the event is caught, I want to send a notification in slack.

Problem is, I don't know how to distinguish between the two events within the same listener.

So far I had to split the listener and create one linked to delete event, and another one linked to move event. Both use an event of type "IssueEvent"


import com.onresolve.scriptrunner.slack.SlackUtil
import com.atlassian.jira.event.issue.IssueEvent
// what else should I import?

def myEventClassName = event.class
def myEntityName
def myEvent
def messageHeader1 = "<!here> *ISSUE DELETED WARNING:*\n"
def messageHeader2 = "<!here> *ISSUE MOVED WARNING:*\n"
def messageHeader

if(event instanceof IssueEvent){ // this where I need to catch the delete event
messageHeader = messageHeader1
myEvent = event as IssueEvent
myEntityName = myEvent.getIssue().getKey()
else { // this where I need to catch the move event
messageHeader = messageHeader2
// blah blah

messageHeader+"\n"+myEventClassName+": "+myEntityName,
username: "My bot",
icon_emoji : ":myavatar"

Hi @Guy Incognito

You can use this to catch the event type:


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def eventTypeManager = ComponentAccessor.getEventTypeManager()
def eventTypeName = eventTypeManager.getEventType(event.eventTypeId).getName()
log.error("myEventTypeNameMOVED: "+ eventTypeName)


As I found you have to set the listener to global or you have to define all the project the issues can be moved to. I found that if I just set the listener to one project and I move the issue to another one, you won't catch the issue moved event, only if the listener is global or the target project is included either.


Hope this helps!
