Get transition Screen with Script Runner Edited


I want to show/hide some fields depending on some conditions on a transition screen.
The transition screen has the name i.e. "A" the view/edit screen which is connected to the project of the transition is called "B - view/edit".
I tried the following code to check if I am on the transition screen at the moment (because the fields are also on the view/edit screen, where they always should be shown) (The code is located on one field of the transition and view/edit screen)

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.screen.FieldScreenManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.screen.FieldScreen
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser

String currentUser = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser().getName()

if (getFieldScreen().name == "A")

With the log info I've checked the value of getFieldScreen().name, it is always "B - view/edit", even if I am at the transition screen :-(

Can anyone explain me how to chek why this check fails? Or what shoul I check to get the current screen? (transition screen)
I work with JIRA 7.1.2.

Thanks and kind regards

Are you wanting to do this in a behaviour?

You can use behaviors to modify the visible/required fields on a screen. You can use a scripted transition to limit the behaviour to a particular workflow step, so that it's only applied on the relevant transition screen. You could add a script to a behaviour with something like:

if (getActionName() == "Transfer Ownership") {
def fieldToHide = getFieldByName("Some custom field I wish to hide")
def fieldToRequire = getFieldByName("Some custom field I wish to require")

Hi Joshua,

Thank you for your answer! That works for me. :-) The only problem now is the flickering of the fields :-/ (field is shown - behaviour script runs - field is hidden)  But this is something we can not solve here...


Thanks and regards
