I'm currently on JIRA 6.4.8 and using JETI 188.8.131.52
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.
|If||Email Body||matches||(\W|^)Due Date:\s(\w+( \w+)*.+)(|$),||set||Due Date||with 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 $group1. I copied and pasted it into the Use Value field for my field rule, and it didn't work when testing. It took me a while to notice the extra white space.
My Field Rules worked below.
Goal of Rule: Set fields in New issues being created from emails
Regex: (\W|^)Due Date:\s(\w+( \w+)*.+)(|$)
Match in: Email Body
Use Value From Manual: $parser.parseDate("MM-dd-yy",$group2)
Issue Field: Due Date

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