JETI: Initializing Due Date Field Question - Regex

I'm currently on JIRA 6.4.8 and using JETI 6.3.0.15

I need some regex help initializing the Due Date field. It doesn't seem to be working properly. My regex passes the test fine in jeti, but when I send test emails, with the data the field doesn't initialize.

I'm using the following Field Context and regex below.

IfEmail Bodymatches(\W|^)Due Date:\s(\w+( \w+)*.+)(|$),setDue Datewith value from Capture Group (2) in new issues

The Due Date field is displayed on a ticket as dd/Mon/yy  which looks like 1/Mar/16 for example. I tried sending an email with Due Date: 11/Mar/16 as part of the email body, but the field does not initialize.

Is there an issue with my regex or is that field not able to be initialized via email?

I kinda feel like it's my regex. I had issues initializing a single select list custom field until I dialed the regex in properly.

Any help anybody would be able to provide me with is much appreciated! Thanks!

@Tibor Hegyi [META-INF], thank you for the page on how to initialize date fields! https://www.meta-inf.hu/display/PLUG/Field+Contexts

This helped immensely, but please note, the example provided on your page has a white space in the regex. It's just before $group1. I copied and pasted it into the Use Value field for my field rule, and it didn't work when testing. It took me a while to notice the extra white space. cheeky

 

My Field Rules worked below. laugh

Goal of Rule: Set fields in New issues being created from emails

Regex: (\W|^)Due Date:\s(\w+( \w+)*.+)(|$)

Match in: Email Body

Use Value From Manual: $parser.parseDate("MM-dd-yy",$group2)

Issue Field: Due Date

Hi @Raina Arjona ,
Can you please share the field rules for initializing a single select list and user picker custom fields please.

Thank you,
Jonalyn

Hi Raina,

This page contains details on how to initialize date fields: https://www.meta-inf.hu/display/PLUG/Field+Contexts

You can test your regex if it matches the mail body. Use the Test feature for that.

If i'm not mistaken, 11/Mar/16 is not a valid value for the Due Date field. I can't remember the format though.
