how to get the issueType name when at create screen ?

I need to get the value of the field issueType at create screen.

i used the function argv["issueType"]  but I didn't get the result.

Is there any way to get issueType name at the issue create screen using SIL ?

Hi Omar,


You can use the argv["issueType"] if you're listening to the changes made for the issueType. You will need lfWatch routine used in a Live Fields configuration for that and the argv["issueType"] will be used in the script used as a listener for Javascript events.




Hello, did you try issueType alone?

Hi Silviu,

I used the routine lfWatch and that works very well.

Thanks for your help




It would not work since it will read the database value of issueType and he needs the screen value!

No, the field is set when creating issue, so we can use validator to check the issue type or condition ....
