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.

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
