Look up issues Smart value

Raju Mandapaka July 14, 2021

Hi Admins,

I using look up issue smart value in an automation which shows all issues under an epic with some satisfied conditions and order by some custom field (ASC)

Now i would like to pick only 1st issue in that list. Earlier i am using smart value as {{#lookupIssues}} {{key}}, {{/}} -- It gives all issues.


any clues??

Hi @Raju Mandapaka


You can try using regex to match a key number from the previous JQL output something like this:

Regex Expression: [A-Z]+-\d+ 


It matches the first issue.

Hi @Raju Mandapaka 

Adding to what @Mykenna Cepek describes...that works when you are inside the list iterator.  To just get the first issue, use {{lookupIssues.first}}
