Jira Automation - Check components in summary issue



I'm trying to create an automation rule which check if an existing project component name is in the issue summary.

I'm quite new to the Jira Automation system and this is my rule :


1- Webhook : GET all components from rest/api/2/project/{{project.key}}/components

2- If : Advanced compare condition : {{", ")}} contains {{issue.summary}}

        Then return "1" in the log

        Else : Return "0" in the log


The only time the rule worked was when i've put only the exact component name in it. If multiple words are in the summary the condition doesn't work even if a component name exists.


Thanks already for your help on that :) 

Best regards

Hi @Yohan Brunet 

To clarify, are you trying to determine if the issue Summary contains any of the current Components configured for the project?

If so, I think you could...use an advanced compare condition by parsing the components into a regular expression.  For example:

  • first value: {{issue.summary}}
  • condition: contains regular expression
  • second value: ({{}}{{.}}{{^last}}|{{/}}{{/}})

That second value will produce a regular expression with the list of components, such as this:


Kind regards,

Hello Bill,


Thanks you, it's working well !

I've added those conversions to avoid lower or upper case issues :





Thanks you again for your help.
