Lookup tables to store values

Lana Kelly August 31, 2023

I am trying to assign values to different dropdowns, and then multiply the value of two different dropdowns together.  I have created lookup tables for them both,

I want then to multiply the value from each table to give me a quantified risk score.  Do I need to create a variable for each thing, or can I just lookup from these tables?  At the moment, my next step is:

Sorry for all these questions.  I'm quite new to automation still.

Hey @Lana Kelly

no need to be sorry. Your questions are totally fine - and I think you're close to the solution yourself. It's a good idea to use lookup tables for defining the numerical value for both of the fields.

In the Edit Issue step, you only need to modify your smart value, so that it takes the value from the fields and looks it up in the tables. I think, this one should work:

{{#=}}{{SeverityTable.get(issue.Severity)}} * {{LikelihoodTable.get(issue.Likelihood)}}{{/}} 

All the best with your automation,

I just tried it and it works!  Thank you so much!  😊
