Inserting dynamically-defined Javascript to run on a specific Edit screen

I have a Javascript that needs to be executed on a specific Edit screen, and the exact code of the Javacript depends on the issue that is being edited and the user.

The Edit screen I'm interested in is the one you get when you go to Issues->Search for issues->click ellipses "..." to the right of any found issue->Edit

What are the possible ways to insert a dynamically-defined Javascript somewhere such that it runs on this screen?


I know I can use a web-panel plugin module to place a panel on the View screen and populate it with a Javascript built dynamically from a Velocity template based on an issue being viewed. In this case, the script would run when the user clicks Edit from the view screen, but this only works for one specific Edit screen which is not the one I need.
