Search in Webhook Response and get a specific value back



i've got a little problem using smartvalues in my jira automation webhook. 


I'm using 


and receive

{id=33, type=TEXT, values=[21077]}, {id=39, type=TEXT, values=[PG-FBL]}

I'm able to get the values with 



and receive 



Now iam creating a new Issue where those values are matched to some customfields.


The Problem is, sometimes the foreign system where i get the data from, responds with more then those 2 values and in a different order, so i cant match them right.


Is there any possibility to search for the id (id=33 and (id=39) and only get the value back? 


Best regards

Hi, Martin,

One alternative would be to venture into regex matching with the match() function.

See the example from this page:

Let me know if that doesn't make sense but the idea would be to match to different regex using the ID as an anchor.

{{webhookResponse.body.additionalInformation.fields.first.match("id=33, type=TEXT, values=\[(.*)\]")}}

I can't test it right not, but hopefully that should give you a better idea of what I meant! 

Hi Filipi,


it doesnt work. i have a question for testing:




This should give ma a digit back, right? This doesnt work as well. The log is empty for your command and in my test as well.  




 {id=33, type=TEXT, values=[21077]}, {id=39, type=TEXT, values=[PG-OBL]}


I even tried this



log still emtpy. 




 {id=33, type=TEXT, values=[21077]}


Maybe you have another idea? Would appreciate it.
