How to access the issue in ScriptRunner custom listener?

Hi guys,

I am trying to implement a custom listener with ScriptRunner and I am not able to get to the issue for which the event I'm listening to fired.

Logging with

log.debug "Event: ${event.getEventTypeId()} fired for ${event.issue} and caught by MyListener"

I get the right info. The issue object, as I understand from documentation, should be accessible without declaring it. But even if I try a simple

log.debug issue.getId()

it gives me the following error in the log

'java.lang.RuntimeException: No such property: issue for class: com.custom.MyListener'

I can't figure out what I'm missing. Does someone have an idea please?

Thanks a lot

You sould use



def myIssue = event.issue

Thanks Marc. I had tried that before, but it gave me an error. Something like "trying to access internal protected parameter". I guess I had something else wrong in the code. Works like a charm.
