Condition on custom email not working with underscore

I am trying to send an email based on the issue type.  My issue types are  EBS_ALERT and EBS_Request

This is what I am using - 

['EBS_ALERT', 'EBS_Request'].contains(issue.issueType?.name)

and when I test with either issue type I can not get it to evaluate to True.

If I use this it will evaluate to true.

['Bug', 'Story'].contains(issue.issueType?.name)


Is it something with the underscores?

Can you change it to:

assert ['EBS_ALERT', 'EBS_Request'].contains(issue.issueType?.name)

And preview with one of those issue types. This should produce an exception which will give enough information to work out what it thinks the issue's name is.

If it's not clear from that post back here with the top part of the exception.


Here is what I got - If I am reading it correct it is seeing that issue name.  

We are currently using == 'EBS_ ALERT' in a condition and that works.

assert ['EBS_ALERT', 'EBS_Request'].contains(issue.issueType?.name) | | | | false | | EBS_ Request | IssueConstantImpl[[GenericEntity:IssueType][sequence,null][name,EBS_ Request][iconurl,/secure/viewavatar?size=xsmall&avatarId=10320&avatarType=issuetype][description,create a request in the EBS queue - non emergency][style,null][id,10103][avatar,10320]] RS-10957

EBS_ Request

There seems to be a space after the underscore.


UGH!  Sorry, your eyes are better than mine!  I was copying as the client sent it to me and even looked for a space at the end.


Thank you!
