Trying to write GROOVY script for transition Condition

I have JIRA Misc Workflow extensions installed and I'm trying to use the “Scripted (Groovy) Condition (JMWE add-on)” condition on a transition in my subtask workflow.

I only want to be able to execute the transition if the parent issues issue type is "Bug"

I have the following but it is not working:

if(parentIssue.get("issuetype").getName() == "Bug"){
return true;
} else {
return false;

I am running JIRA version 7.3.5
JMWE version 4.0.7

Any ideas how to access the parent issue issue type using Groovy within JIRA Misc Workflow extensions?

Thank you!
