Strip Text and Copy to another field

We have a need to take an issue and remove the hyphen and issue number from an issue and copy just the project key into another field.

I am new to using ScriptRunner and am looking for some guidance into how this can be done.

Hi Branden,

You can remove the hyphen and the issue number with replaceAll() method. Below is the sample script that applied in Behaviours:

//Get the current issue key to remove its hyphen and the issue number
def test = (underlyingIssue as String).replaceAll(/-.*/,'')

def textField = getFieldByName("Single Text")

//Copy the project key to another field "Single Text"

You can also refer to the community post here: Trim string with ScriptRunner for trimming the string before the '@' and copy that value in another text field in Post Function.
