Scriptrunner behaviour: Contains function


I'm trying to filter the value of Field2 (Select List (multiple choice) depending on the value of Field1 (Select List (multiple choice).


However, it only reads the ((selectedOption.contains("Client"))) condition and I believed this is because they both contain a 'Client' keyword.


Is there a way to be more specific? I tried using (selectedOption == "Client Team") but its not working.


Here is my code below.


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def tool = getFieldByName("Plan Type")

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def optionsManager = ComponentAccessor.getOptionsManager()

def toolfield = getFieldById(getFieldChanged())
def selectedOption = toolfield.getValue() as String

def customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(tool.getFieldId())
def config = customField.getRelevantConfig(getIssueContext())
def options = optionsManager.getOptions(config)


if ((selectedOption.contains("Client Team")))
def optionsMap2 = options.findAll {
it.value in ["CT: Medical", "CT: Vision", "CT: Dental", "CT: Pharma (Rx)"]
}.collectEntries {
(it.optionId.toString()): it.value


if ((selectedOption.contains("Client")))
def optionsMap3 = options.findAll {
it.value in ["Client: Medical", "Client: Vision", "Client: Dental", "Client: Pharma (Rx)"]
}.collectEntries {
(it.optionId.toString()): it.value

Hi @Ysaac James Salao 

You retrieve the values of your fields as a String. And contains operator returns true if the string contains the specified sequence of char values

But multi chose select list return values as a List<String>. And contains operator returns true if the list contains the specified element.

if ((selectedOption.contains("Client Team"))) {
//logic for client team
} else if ((selectedOption.contains("Client"))) {
//logic for client

otherwise it enters both of your cycles if it contains "Client Team" and 2nd cycle being last overrides logic of first
