Xporter for JIRA - Variables in hyperlink title + href

Hi,

Using JIRA 7.1.7 server + Xporter for JIRA 4.3.0.

Is anyone able to use a variable in both the title and href of a hyperlink?


I have the following snippets in my Word document:

${set(statuslist,"status IN (Open, 'In Progress', Testing)")}

which prints just fine when I write ${statuslist}.

When I substitute this into a hyperlink, one works fine:

@{title=link to JIRA|href=${BaseURL}/issues/?jql=${statuslist} AND project = TASK AND issuetype = Task}

and

@{title=${jqlcount:${statuslist} AND project = TASK AND issuetype = Task}|href=${BaseURL}/issues/?jql=project = TASK AND issuetype = Task}

When I attempt to substitute it twice with:

@{title=${jqlcount:${statuslist} AND project = TASK AND issuetype = Task}|href=${BaseURL}/issues/?jql=${statuslist} AND project = TASK AND issuetype = Task}

then ${BaseURL} appears not to substitute and it becomes a local link.

Has anyone been able to use a variable in both the title and href of a hyperlink?

Hi @Jimmy Van,

Try to use this:

 

${set(myJqlCount,"${jqlcount:${statuslist} AND project = TASK AND issuetype = Task}")}
@{title=${myJqlCount}|href=${BaseURL}/issues/?jql=project = TASK AND issuetype = Task}

 

I hope this will help you.

Cheers,

Rui Rodrigues.

Thanks Rui thumbs-up I tried:

${set(myJqlCount2,"${jqlcount:${statuslist} AND project
= TASK AND issuetype = Task}")}
@{title=${myJqlCount2}|href=${BaseURL}/issues/?jql=${statuslist}
AND project = TASK AND issuetype = Task}

with the ${var} in the href, and that seemed to work.
