Getting current issue in scriptrunner listener static error


Scriptrunner version 6.49

In my listener I am getting issue like this:

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
def thisIssue = event.issue as MutableIssue

I am shown a static error like this

[Static type checking] - No such property: issue for class: com.atlassian.jira.event.AbstractEvent @ line 31, column 96.


Can you please let me know what is best way to get current issue in event listener.

Generally, you can ignore the static type checking error. Groovy can't know before run time that the event is an IssueEvent, so it can't determine that there is an issue property. 

BTW - I don't see that error in my version of ScriptRunner. However, if you want to clear up that error, you can do this:

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

def thisIssue = ((IssueEvent)event).getIssue() as MutableIssue

 As a general practice, you are better off using the getter/setter functions than accessing the properties of an object directly. 

I am getting this static error now

[Static type checking]  The variable [event] is undeclared.
