Listener not catching custom event fired by another listener Edited

I am writing my own plugin.

I have 2 listeners. The first one runs when an issue is transitioned and then based on a bunch of conditions may fire a custom event.

The second listener should only run when the custom event is fired but for some reason isn't running when the first event fires the event.( I have a few log statements before doing the check on which event type is being handled so I know it is in fact listening for events)

I have temporarily installed script runner and created a listener that runs on the custom event to check if the event is being fired and it is.

Listener that should run when issues are transitioned: (I know is working)

public void onIssueEvent(IssueEvent event) {
LOG.debug("Trigger Listener");
if (!needsToHandle(event)) {
LOG.debug("Dont need to handle event {}", event.getEventTypeId());

.filter(trigger -> triggerMatchesIssue(trigger, event.getIssue()))
.forEach(trigger ->
actionLocator.getActionsForTrigger(trigger).forEach(action -> fireAction(action, event)));

private void fireAction(Action action, IssueEvent event) {
getProvider(action.getGroup().getFunction()).ifPresent(provider -> {
List<Contact> contacts = provider.getContacts(event.getIssue(), action.getGroup());

Map<String, Object> params = new HashMap<>();
params.put("action", action);
params.put("contactsMap", asListOfMaps(contacts));

IssueEvent toDispatch = new IssueEvent(event.getIssue(), params, event.getUser(), eventType.getId(), false);
LOG.debug("Dispatched {} event for action : {}", eventType.getName(), action.getName());

Listener that should only run on custom event: (Not running on events fired by previous)

public void onIssueEvent(IssueEvent event) {
LOG.debug("Notification Listener");
if(event.getEventTypeId() != eventType.getId()){
LOG.debug("event eventTypeId {}",event.getEventTypeId());
LOG.debug("event type id {}",eventType.getId());
.filter(type -> Objects.equals(event.getEventTypeId(), type.getId()))
.findFirst().ifPresent(eventType1 -> {

LOG.debug("Running Notification LIstener");


Any help would be appreciated because I dont want to have to call the 2nd listeners method directly
