I want to do this:
This would replace a certain table row in the description. The row that begins with myParam in the first cell. A table row looks like this:
But the problem is that you can't add strings together as a parameter (using the plus sign). You can append a string onto an existing value (using concat), but you can't prepend.
I considered using reverse/concat/reverse/concat, which looks ridiculous. Ultimately I did this:
This is probably equally ridiculous. I'm using the first 0 characters of the summary (a field I know exists) to create a temporary variable I can use to create my regex. I'm using the server version of Jira so I can't create a variable. I'm not sure what the right way to do this is. Any help appreciated.
Hi @John Colosi
First, I want to note that is a clever work-around for no Create Variable action in the Server/Data Center version of automation rules.
Other approaches would be to store your search expression for the replaceAll() call in an entity property (or custom field), re-fetch, and then use that directly. That would be slower but it might allow other regular expression content, possibly excluded by the smart value text function handling.
