How to specify "ends with" for Adaptavist ScriptRunner for Bitbucket for Custom event handler Edited


Using Adaptavist ScriptRunner 5.4.10 with Custom event handler for Bitbucket, I'm trying to check both "starts with" and "ends with" using Inline script for ProjectCreationRequestedEvent.

But, the following doesn't work:

def regex = "AP[0-9]+|PR[0-9]+|AX[0-9]+|IN[0-9]+|PL[0-9]+|.*\SHARED$|.*\SANDBOX$"

as I get the error:

The script could not be compiled:

org.codehaus.groovy.control.MultipleCompilationErrorsException: startup failed:
Script32.groovy: 1: unexpected char: '\' @ line 1, column 61.


But, using, the Regular expression of  AP[0-9]+|PR[0-9]+|AX[0-9]+|IN[0-9]+|PL[0-9]+|.*\SHARED$|.*\SANDBOX$ works fine.


And, using def regex = "AP[0-9]+|PR[0-9]+|AX[0-9]+|IN[0-9]+|PL[0-9]+" works fine for "starts with". So, I only seem to have a problem with specifying an "ends with" for regular expression in Inline script.


Any advice on how to check for a string that ends with a particular text for the regular expression in the Inline script? Is there a trick?

Of course, I'm open to any other suggestions.
