Getting an Event Name via Groovy

I am putting all Events into splunk:

Incuding the EventTypeId. But I cant get a hand on the Name itself like "Issue Created" - only by hardcoding it with if/case like:


if (EventId == EventType.ISSUE_WORKLOG_DELETED_ID)
EventName="Worklog Deleted"
if (EventId == EventType.ISSUE_WORKLOG_UPDATED_ID)
EventName="Worklog Updated"

How do I get hold of the name (also for Custom Events):

if (EventId == 10009)
EventName="P1 Incident"
if (EventId == 10010)
EventName="P2 Incident"

I think you could get them from EventTypeManager, see code:


import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventType
import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventTypeManager
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
EventTypeManager etm = ComponentAccessor.getEventTypeManager();

Collection<EventType> alleventTypes = etm.getEventTypes()

def result="";
for (EventType ev : alleventTypes) {


return result;
