Use SmartValues/String-Operation

Displayname is: Mustermann, Max AB

Used smart-Values in automatation:

a: {{initiator.displayName}}
b: {{initiator.displayName.left(10)}}
c: {{initiator.displayName.lastIndexOf(" ")}}
d: {{initiator.displayName.left(15)}}

Result without error:

a: Mustermann, Max AB
b: Mustermann
c: 15
d: Mustermann, Max

I like to have the result from d) for EVERY Displayname. So I want use c) and d) together:

{{initiator.displayName.left({{initiator.displayName.lastIndexOf(" ")}})}} 

(I want put the result from c) as a number in d).

But there comes an error. Whats wrong?

Of the top of my head I think you can combine these operators thusly:

{{initiator.displayName.left(initiator.displayName.lastIndexOf(" "))}}

But I need to test it.

Ok, confirmed that this worked. Good luck!

OK. Without the {{ }}



Hi  @Olli 

Yes, Darryl's answer:

If you always have the same suffix, such as "AB", you could use the function substringBeforeLast()

Kind regards,
