Using firstname of assignee instead of firstname and lastname


I would like to use the first name in email notifications and try to remove the last name.

So if I use the smart value {{issue.assignee.displayName}} I receive the whole name, first and second name.

With {{}} a get nothing.

Is there any way to parse the string until the first space?

{{issue.assignee.displayName.split(" ").first}}

Oh My God... Is command perfect
