Question on Issue Move event

I have implemented a listener on move event. I need to do some settings on the new issue based on the source issue details. How can i get the source issue details like issue type, project id, fix versions etc when issue is moved?

The "issue moved" event contains a full set of issue data, as do all issue based events.

I've not written vast numbers of listeners, but the simple and few ones I have written all start with

public void onIssueEvent(IssueEvent issueEvent) {
   Long eventTypeId = issueEvent.getEventTypeId();
   Issue issue = issueEvent.getIssue();
Once you have the issue, you can use the full set of issue.getSomething calls from the API to fetch the data.

Issue issue = issueEvent.getIssue(); issue object would be modified version but not the source issue. Am i wrong?

Again - give us a chance, we do have other things in life, like family, work, food, cats and sleep.

Sorry, for the source, no, you'll need to read the history. Events are thrown at the end of the process, so only really have access to the current data.
