Adaptavist ScriptRunner >>> Groovy Script >>> 4 String manipulation

Hi to All,

in order to manipulate the Value of the the custom fileds using Groovy script, I would need to use the following features (function) that they are present in Java :

*.toLowerCase()

Math.min()

*.replace()

.substring()

It would be possible?

 

Thanks 4 the answer.

Groovy is a JVM based scripting languages with it's own set of idiosyncracies , here's the code snippet with requested methods - 

println 'ABCDEF'.length() // output: 6
println 'ABCDEF'.substring(1) // output: BCDEF
println 'ABCDEF'.indexOf('C') // output: 2
println 'ABCDEF'.replace('CD', 'XX') // output: ABXXEF
println 'ABCDEF'.toLowerCase()

 Math class is available from the JVM itself at run-time thus groovy can use it as well. "Math.min (1,2)"  will return smaller of the two numbers.

Hello, 

Yes, it is possible. Groovy is based on Java that is why you can just use pure Java there. That would be a simple script which you can try in Script Console

def str = "String"
log.error(str.toLowerCase())
log.error(Math.min(2,1))
log.error(str.replace("t", "r"))
log.error(str.substring(1, 2));
