Automation for Jira - multiplying two variables together

Nigel Budd _CV_ July 3, 2020

I want to create a risk result based on impact and probability.

Impact/Prob will be select list custom fields, an automation will work out a risk value.

I'm trying to use the Create Variable action, to set a value depending on the Impact selected by the user.

A final action to write the resulting value back to the Issue.



If I exclude the |0, AFJ throws an error "unknown unary operator *", with the |0, the result is 0 so I believe AFJ is treating the smart variable as strings, is there any way to cast, or another way of fixing this?

Managed to work it out, if anyone is interested.

For the Impacts, I prefixed each with a number. e.g. 1. Low


Create Variable Step:

Variable: RiskImpact

Value: {{Risk Impact}}


Create Variable Step:

Variable: iRiskImpact

Value: {{#=}}{{RiskProbability.charAt(0)}}{{/}}


then in the Edit Field
