Which Listener Event will set different default value for a custom field based on issue type.

I'm creating a plugin in order to set different default value for a custom field for different issue types in a single project, and I'm wondering where exactly to start.

Is there a specific event or Listener I can attach to in order to set the default values of a custom field programmatically based on issue type?

I know I could use ScriptRunner, but I'm hoping to avoid installing it, if I can do it simply in my own plugin.  I have created plugins, but I'm not understanding how to attach to the create screen event.  Thanks.

Hello,

You do not need to install Scriptrunner, if you want to write your own plugin. You should useEventType.ISSUE_CREATED_ID. You can find more info here:
