Hi Salman,

Yes, it is possible to run a Live Fields SIL script on any screen. By default, a live fields SIL script associated to certain projects will execute on all issue screens for the given projects.

You can control on which screens to execute your SIL script using the argv["screen"] parameter inside your script. For example, if you want a live fields SIL script to execute only on the view issue screen your code should be:

if(argv["screen"] == "view") {

//your code here


You can find more details about accessing the current screen inside your scripts here:



No, at the moment there is no support for the link issue screen in live fields.

Thanks! That works like a charm. I also see that it can identify transistion screens.

Is it also possible to identify if it is the Link Issue screen somehow?

Like Artem Tumanov likes this

Trying to restrct the options in Link types for specific issue types! I figure if I can identify link issue screen, that can be done easily.

I have looked into Validations based on conditions but that does not solve my problem, whoithout having to write a spearate validation plugin. And in case, after creating an issue, user can go to link page and change things which wont be validated through that plugin anyway.

So I recon, if I can limit the options itself, chances of things going wrong will be reduced.

Any possible work arounds?

What are you trying to do on the Link Issue screen?
