How to split labels from the output of ConfiForms Field that is in  [A,B,C,D] format

yogesh bhatt April 20, 2023

I'd like to be able to select 1 or more metrics from a multiselect confiform dropdown and when the form creates a jira story, it should automatically add the corresponding label for each of the metrics selected to the label field in the story.

 I am using "Smart Multi-select" field type in ConfiForms field.

 The output from that is in  [A,B,C,D] format. JIRA considers it one label rather than seperate. I want these 4 labels gets created? how to do that I used array keyword as well.

{ "fields": { "project": {"key": "SATS"}, "summary": "[entry.Summary.escapeJSON]", "description": "Issue: [entry.Issue.escapeJSON] \r\n \r\n Requester: [entry.Requestor.escapeJSON] \r\n \r\n Tech contact: [entry.Techcontact.escapeJSON] \r\n \r\n Metric(s): [entry.Metrics.LinkedMetricSep.escapeJSON] \r\n \r\n Metric Label(s): [entry.Metrics.MetricLabelSep.escapeJSON] \r\n \r\n Benefits: [entry.Benefits.escapeJSON] \r\n \r\n Workaround: [entry.Current.escapeJSON] \r\n \r\n To Be: [entry.ToBe.escapeJSON] \r\n \r\n Additional Comments: [entry.Comments.escapeJSON]", "labels": ["Dynamos"], "customfield_10153": "[entry.Summary.escapeJSON]", "duedate": "[entry.DeployDate.jiraDate]", "reporter": {"name": "[entry._user]"}, "issuetype": {"id": "5"}, } }

Yes Alex. I want to seperate the lebels. As of now it's coming in format (A,B,C,D) and its getting as one label, I tried removing seperater comma but with space also it considers one label itself.

Although, I dont know your form's configuration but I believe this is what it should be

[entry.Metrics.transform(MetricLabelSep).asArray]

No that didn't help. We tried trimAllSpaces today and it is working now.
