When field value changed - use regular expression

Hi, I'm trying to send an email upon custom field change value to 'Yes' with no success. I guess the regular expression is not correct?

this is what I'm trying to do:

Field value changed:

Fields to monitor for changes*

#some custom field

to :

All issues operations



Advanced compare condition:



Exactly matches regular expression

Hi @tal

Could you share a screenshot of how you have configured the Advanced compare?

I suspect that you need to change your condition to be just the condition "contains" and if you have quotes around the yes then remove those as well.

Also, this is case sensitive as well so your case needs to match, or you need to add a .toLowerCase on your smart value.

Hi @tal

It looks like you still have the yes wrapped in double quotes in your advanced compare?
