Validating Attachments Added this Transition

I have a requirement to validate if attachments were added during a transition screen where the attachment field exists. I have followed the code Ref: but that's not working. Can someone please confirm if that works even or if there are any caveats while using that.

I have worked around the above issue as below:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueFieldConstants
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.attachment.FileSystemAttachmentDirectoryAccessor

def attachmentDirectoryAccessor = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(FileSystemAttachmentDirectoryAccessor)
def temporaryAttachmentDirectory = attachmentDirectoryAccessor.getTemporaryAttachmentDirectory()

def attachmentNames = issue.modifiedFields.get(IssueFieldConstants.ATTACHMENT)?.newValue

if(attachmentNames) {
return true
