Need to modify the values in text field

Hi Team,


We have Test 1 field with checkbox with values A-Apple, B- Ball, C-cat and when the issue is transitioned to next status automatically the checkbox values gets copied to text field single line, so when it is copied to text field  i want to remove the text like Apple, ball etc.

We are using script runner, JMWE and automations.


Thanks in advance!!

Hi Janaki,

I don't think I am completely following the question. Can you provide an exact example of what you would like to see after the transition? 

Hi @John M Funk 

Thanks for responding.


Example my checkbox field contains values like A-Apple, B- Ball, C-cat and when the transition happens the same checkbox values get copied to text field like  A-Apple, B- Ball, C-cat so now when the transition happens in my text field I want values as only A, B, C and not A-Apple, B- Ball, C-cat.

Hope I am clear this time.

That's helpful! And there might be multiple values in the same field?

@John M Funk yes, it will have multiple values in the same field.

Sorry for all of the questions, but are you using an add-on for the checkboxes - like a checklist? Or is it just a regular Checkboxes type of custom field? 

@John M Funk NP actually thanks for trying to helping me out, we are using regular Checkboxes custom field that we get from Jira.
