I found way to find the Issue status in IssueLinkCreatedEvent.

Thank you!!


Here is sample Code:

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.event.issue.IssueEventManager
import com.atlassian.jira.event.issue.IssueEvent
import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventDispatchOption
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.event.issue.IssueEvent
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueInputParametersImpl
import com.atlassian.jira.bc.issue.IssueService
import com.atlassian.jira.bc.issue.IssueService.TransitionValidationResult
import org.apache.log4j.Logger
import org.apache.log4j.Level

IssueManager im= ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager();
def event = event as IssueLinkCreatedEvent"Event Class:"+event.getClass());"DestinationObject: "+event.issueLink.destinationObject);"Issue Link :"+event.issueLink);

def destinationObject = event.issueLink.destinationObject

MutableIssue issue=im.getIssueByCurrentKey(destinationObject.key);"Issue Summary :"+issue.getSummary());"Issue Type :"+issue.getIssueType().getName());"Key :"+issue.getKey());

def status=issue.getStatus().getName();"status: "+status);
def actionId=141 //Status: Manager's Review  
def transitionValidationResult
def transitionResult
def currentUser = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()

IssueService issueService = ComponentAccessor.getIssueService()

if(status == "Needs Review" && issue.getIssueType().getName()=="Thread")
transitionValidationResult = issueService.validateTransition(currentUser,, actionId,new IssueInputParametersImpl())

if (transitionValidationResult.isValid())
transitionResult = issueService.transition(currentUser, transitionValidationResult)

if (transitionResult.isValid())
{"Transitioned issue $issue through action $actionId")
{"Transition result is not valid") }
{"The transitionValidation is not valid")
