I have two version naming conventions that include text one is (main) and other is (react)

Is this what you mean?

  1. You create a new version that contains react
  2. Than you want to find certain issue through a JQL
  3. Than take those issues and move them to the created Version

Please confirm so we can check that

Yes please

I know how to do step 2 and 3, its 1 i cant figure out. 

This is the current workflow

If you click on more options in the version created trigger than you can set a regex for the name.

I did see this but genuinely have no idea how to format it in order to work the way I want


Could you help with that?

I need some example versions from you

Is there no way to do it based on just containing some fixed text?


The version name is not important or in a defined format at point of creation, all that is required is (main) or (react) is in the name. When ready for release we then update the name to a version number but it still is suffixed with either (main) or (react)

I am not into regex but maybe "*REACT*" does it

doesnt work :(

I just typed in react / main and it can work like that, thanks

Hi Aaron,

I am working on some automation using version created as a trigger, but I am getting invalid regular expression error. 



I was trying to use the following to check not empty, it shows `invalid regular expression`. I tested `^\S+$` in it is correct. But not sure using `.match()` function is right or not. Any ideas?
