Smart Values : Using Conditionals (IF) in Lists

Given a trigger, Field Value Changed, I want to create a Smart Value (Create Variable) containing a string of filtered label values (label starts with 'team/').



- Labels: team/abc team/def another-label

Expected Result: Variable contains

team/abc team/def


I tried the following:

{{#labels}}{{#if({{.}}.startsWith("team/"))}}{{.}} {{/}}{{/}}

Error: Could not extract smart value parameter: {{.: {{#labels}}{{#if({{.}}.startsWith("team/"))}}{{.}}{{/}}{{/}}


{{#if(issue.labels.startsWith("team/"))}}{{.}} {{/}}

Result: Variable is empty


This works:

{{#labels}}{{.}} {{/}}

But returns all the labels.

I know I am close, but the #IF is tripping me up.

Hi @Rick Moerloos , I'm working off of this article:

and this reference:

I think what you want is:

{{#if(startsWith("team/")) }}{{.}}{{/}}

(The trick here is that each label will automatically get iterated through by the IF, so you don't need to include it as {{.}})

Thank you, Darryl!
