Get EventId in listener under "Issue Create"

Why is this not working :-)


I need to capture - and fire listener if:


1. Issue created and field set to "ERP"

2. Issue changes and field set to "ERP"




import com.atlassian.jira.event.issue.IssueEvent;

long EventId=event.getEventTypeId;

boolean InChange = changeItems.any

{ it.field=='DIIT Team'}

'ERP' in cfValues['DIIT Team']*.value && ( InChange || EventId.toString() == "1" )


The "getEventTypeId" fails with: No such Property -

It is not a property, it is a method that is why you should call it like this

long EventId= event.getEventTypeId()

with parenthis

What a rookie mistanke - LOL


Thanx. mate - appriciated !!
