problems with regex in simple condition script

mrmightypants July 13, 2017

I've got a simple script condition on a workflow transition.  The goal is to only allow the transition if the value of a custom text field does not contain an e-mail address with a certain domain.  However, I'm finding that this evaluates to true regardless of whether or not that domain is present.  What I have now is essentially this:

cfValues['somefield'] !=~ /somedomain/

I also tried the two below in case whole line matches are required:

cfValues['somefield'] !=~ /.*somedomain.*/
cfValues['somefield'] !=~ /^.*somedomain.*$/

No luck with any of these.  Then I tried switching to ==~ and reversing the return value like this:

!cfValues['somefield'] ==~ /^.*somedomain.*$/

This one evaluates to false regardless of whether or not the domain in present.  Anyone have any ideas?
