JJupin - Live Fields: How to know the issuetype in a SIL script?

I need to launch a lfSet("customfield_XXXX",{" "," "}) in the initial script only when user launches specific transitions in flows.

The next code doesn't works for me:

string pantalla=argv["screen"];
if (pantalla == "trans_841")){
     lfSet("customfield_20901",{" "," "});

becasue the transition 841 exists for several flows and are diferents transitions.

Then, my problem is: the same "transition id" has been assigned to diferent transitions in several flows. Then I need to distiguish in which flow is the user when the transition is launched. For example, I need to know the name of the flow or the issuetype (because I've a distinct flow for each issuetype).


How can I do that?

You could try something like this:

if (pantalla == "trans_841" && issueType == "Bug")){

or you could try to simply add a postfunction on that transition in which you set the value: 

customfield_20901 = {" ", " "};


Hope this helps,

I'll try with the firts option because I need that the customfield was cleaned when the transition screen opens. After that the user can populate the customfield and I can't clear this value.
