Default Subtask issue type using behavior

I've created a Script fragment to create a subtask, Please see below xml similar to the one mentioned here(

 <web-item key='createFeed' name='ScriptRunner generated web item - createFeed' section='operations-top-level' weight='1'>
    <condition class='script:jiraHelper.project?.key == "ABC"&amp; == "Story"'/>
     <link linkId='createFeed'>/jira/secure/CreateSubTaskIssue.jspa?parentIssueId=${}&amp;pid=${}&amp;issuetype=11111</link>

Error: I have 2 subtasks types, because of jira's default behavior the issue type is selected to the latest subtask issue type created.

Steps taken to solve the error: I tried using the Behaviours integration to set the issue type to default, Please see below script as mentioned in the documentation:

    import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
    import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager;

    def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
    if (getBehaviourContextId() == "createFeed") {       getFieldById("issuetype-field").setReadOnly(true)

But this doesn't work. Am I missing anything or is this because of the styleClass I've used. issueaction-create-subtask

I need the subtask screen to popup when the script fragment button is clicked, with the issue type field set as read only.

Pleas advise. Thanks.

In the following line


 What do you use for issuetyle-field? It must be like customfield_<id>. If you use the name of the custom field you need to call getFieldByName method.
