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.

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.
