Error in JIRA smart value documentation (typo)

janez hribar April 13, 2023

 

Here are some possible typos:

1) chartAt paragraph:  it seems the example
   {{issue.summary.charAt(7)}} -> W  
   is wrong. 
   Character W is in string "Hello World!" at position 6 (index is zero based)

2) similar errors are found at lastIndexOf paragraph

3) equalsIgnoreCase  paragraph: equals method is used in the example.

4) reverse() paragraph: the example has probably an error in result string

Hi @janez hribar 

Thanks for reporting this.  I have created an internal ticket to have someone from the automation documentation team review this page.  In my own testing I found a few errors with the current documentation.  I expect it might take a few days to update and correct this, but I will try to update this thread once I see that this document has been corrected.

 

Cheers,

Andy

Hi @janez hribar good catch! I don't think anyone from Atlassian saw this post yet.  I created a Support ticket to clarify the document and fix any typos.

The documentation is incorrect.  I've submitted a ticket for Jira Support to correct this.

They will be making the necessary changes.

They tested reverse() and couldn't see any errors in the result string.  The other 3 issues will be corrected.  You are correct, the index is 0 based so the results are off by 1.  If this resolves the issue, could you possibly mark it as answered?  Thx.

Please fix reverse() errors in the documentation:
a) starting { character is missing in mustache expression,
b) "Hello World!" > reverse() > "!dlroW olleH"  ("!dlroW elloH" is wrong).
