Class name field in mygroovy script listener

Good day,


I am learning how to write scripts and run them with mygroovy in Jira Software Server.

If I understand right, class name means listener class.

Question - what should I write if I want in script to handle with multiple event types?  


with code like

if (event instanceof VersionCreateEvent){
def event = event as VersionCreateEvent
log.debug "new version created"
else if(event instanceof VersionUpdatedEvent){
def event = event as VersionUpdatedEvent
log.debug "version was updated"

Or it is not possible and should devide scripts on different event types?

Oh, I found answer my self.

I need to choose parent class. Parent class in this case is "com.atlassian.jira.event.project.AbstractVersionEvent"
