You could try:

I don't think I got round to integrating that code.

Failing that you could add listeners, but I don't know how to distinguish events caused by mail handlers vs standard events. You could try checking transientVars and see if there is anything in there.

it's a bit of a hack but i've been using this to see if an issue was created with the mail handler: if ( Thread.currentThread().getStackTrace().grep(~/com.atlassian.jira.plugins.mail.handlers.CreateIssueHandler.*/) ) { // created via mail handler } else { // created some other way }

Thanks, i will try

is there still a way to run a script when a comment is generally added? Regardless of where the comment is coming from ... mail handler, transition screens, ...
