Regular Expression Check (JSU)




Im trying to add a validator with alert message pop up if storypoint is not within the Fibonacci Sequence. However, the below code is appearing to alert for all numbers. Please assist with the below?

  • Regular expression: Option [1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144Story Point.JPG

You could try this regular expression, I used a version of it way back in the days when I did a lot of Perl scripting:

(?x) .? | ( \\2?+ (\\1|^.) )* ..

For an explanation of it, check out this post

@Mikael Sandberg Thank you for your response! 

I have just try this script and it doesnt seem to be working. The alert appears to be stopping only 2 digits number. However, our end goal is to stop the user from entering in any numbers that not within the given option of  (1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144)

Any other ideas?

@Mikael Sandberg Okay i think i got this to work. However do you know if Jira will allow us to put this into Prod at a specific date? Example, if i want to implement this script next week and anything before next week does not need to follow this rule.

i guess you could if you have an app that allows you to add scripts to the workflow that checks when the issue was created, but that seems to be a lot of work to get it working. Your other option would be to create a new issue type with a new workflow and "retire" the existing issue type, but if it was my environment I would not recommend it.
