Get the next status from JIRA worklflow action without processing the action.

Hey i want to get the next status from an issue workflow action.

I dont want to process the status.

But i have no idea how to solve that.

My approach would be like this:

 WorkflowManager workflowManager = ComponentAccessor.getWorkflowManager();
List<Status> statuses = workflowManager.getWorkflow(issue).getLinkedStatusObjects();

List<String> allActionNames = new ArrayList<>();
for (Status status : statuses) {
StepDescriptor currentStep = workflowManager.getWorkflow(issue).getLinkedStep(status);

List<ActionDescriptor> actions = currentStep.getActions();
for (ActionDescriptor actionDescriptor : actions) {


 I need something like this actionDescriptior.getNextStatusObject().


Or  is there any other approach?
