in a Behaviour how can I know if create screen triggered by "create issue in epic" action/button


I am trying to restrict issues types available when user clicks the "create issue in epic" button from an Epic. The behaviour is on the create screen and if I try 

log.debug("actionName=" + actionName)  ... I get "Create" 
log.debug("underlyingIssue.parentObject=" + underlyingIssue.parentObject) .. I get "null" 

any ideas ? 

Cheers in advance. Luka

Hello Luka,

To achieve your requirement, I believe you should retrieve the issue type on the create screen.

Here's the sample script:

if (getActionName() in ['Create Issue', 'Create']) {

def issueTypeName = getIssueContext()

if(issueTypeName == 'Epic'){ //if it's epic

//your code



 May I know is this what you are asking for?

thanks for the fast reply! 

what I am trying to do is: find a way to check if the create screen has been triggered by the "create issue in epic" action in an epic. ( and if it has then limit the issuetypes available) 

If you click the "create issue in epic" action in an epic it will open up a create issue screen and set the issue type to the last issuetype you created .. it could be epic or issue or bug or whatever you created last. So checking issueTypeName == 'Epic' will not help :-(
