Find user who created Jira issue link


I am trying to find the user who created / deleted an issue link via custom code in script runner. For an IssueEvent object, I can use getUser() method. Similarly, for IssueLinkCreatedEvent or IssueLinkDeletedEvent, I am trying to figure out the best way to identify the user who created/deleted the link. Based on the user, I must do some custom handling. 

Can you please let me know if there is a way to accomplish this?

Iterate through the change history and search for the field "Link". From there you need to parse the "from" field, "to" field and get the user who performed the change:
