Get current screen with Script Runner


How can I distinguish if an issue is on create, edit or show screen whit Script Runner?  

I can get the create view with getActionName() method, but this is not a solution for edit and show views.

This widget could not be displayed.

getActionName() works for the Create Issue screen, but doesn't work for the Edit screen. According to, that is not a bug but was done by design. getFieldScreen().name won't work either I don't think.

Behaviours do not work on the Issue View screen. Behaviours only function on the Create Issue, Update/Edit Issue, Assign Issue, and Workflow Transition screens. If you are on a later version of ScriptRunner, attempting to inline edit a field on the View Screen that has a behaviour attached will simply open the Edit Issue screen.

So as far as I know, there isn't really a way to check in a behaviour if the issue is on the Edit screen.
