Get Issues In Epic in Scripted Field

Using ScriptRunner for JIRA (Server), I want to create a custom field (HTML) that shows the ID and Summary fields of the child issues in the epic. How would I get that list of data using JIRA's API?

Ended up solving it myself:


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

IssueLinkTypeManager issueLinkTypeManager = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(IssueLinkTypeManager)
IssueLinkManager issueLinkManager = ComponentAccessor.issueLinkManager

def sb = new StringBuilder()

def linkType = issueLinkTypeManager.getIssueLinkTypes(false).find{ == 'Epic-Story Link' }
def issueLinkList = issueLinkManager.getOutwardLinks({ it.getLinkTypeId() == linkType.getId() }
for (issueLink in issueLinkList) {
def childIssue = issueLink.getDestinationObject()
sb <<= '<a href=\''
sb <<= childIssue.getKey()
sb <<= '\'>'
sb <<= childIssue.getKey()
sb <<= '</a> ('
sb <<= childIssue.getSummary()
sb <<= '), '
return sb
