How to extract first and last name from fixVersions

I have a rule that clones an issue and I need to separate versions. For that I have to store first and last version names to variable.


How can I do this?

I tried 


This does not work.

Any ideas?

OK, I managed it myself



Hi @Sergei Gridnevskii 

I do not believe it is documented what order the values are returned in the fixVersions list, so first and last may not be what you want.

Please consider looking at the list functions to get the min/max by release date and then using list filtering to target the exact one you need.

Kind regards,

Thanks. Bill. 

I had a task to separate tickets having exactly 2 fixVersions. 

If you are interested, we have 2 products that are intended for different markets. 90% of code is the same. If a bug is found, it is fixed in "common" part of the app, but we still need to test solution in both products for possible regression. As long as bug is ready for testing we need to separate it into 2 bugs (one for one product, another for another - 2 fixVersions) and assign QA team to both.

I tried to persuade QA team not to perform testing activities on developers issues, instead have their own project with own workflow, fields, screens, integrations, but they still prefer to overcomplify tasks.
