for auditing purposes, I am currently writing a listener (which will sit on the "Generic event", since this one is called from every transition).
The issue I am trying to resolve is - how to get the transition name or ID within the listener code?
transientVars is not defined there, so I cannot use transientVars["actionId"]...
Many thanks in advance
There's no transientVars in a listener because the transition is complete by the time a listener picks it up.
That concept is also important with what you're trying to do - listeners only catch events, not transitions. If you want your listener to do different things on different transitions, then you need to do one of two things:
I'd strongly recommend using the first approach. Admins like me will have a tendency to go through workflows and change "generic" to more useful events so that we can use notifications and listeners properly. If I found a listener that relies on "generic event" being fired for everything, frankly, I'd delete it and re-examine the requirement with a view to doing it a sensible way.
