Delete whitespaces from a String using Smart Value Edited

Hi everyone,

I want to get a String without whitespaces using smart values (in Project Automation), which copies values of a Multi-user picker field into a single-line text field.

By simply using {{issue.myField}}, It puts white spaces between usernames:

usernameA, usernameB, usernameC

I've tried :




but all characters were deleted!

Do you know how I can remove those spaces?

I am not sure you still need it but I was facing the same issue and I found a workaround.

Use the Create Variable component to create the smart value without the space (using remove or Replace function)

For some reason, the Edit issue field component did not work for me each time I tried to type the character space. But editing inside the create Variable component worked perfectly.

You can then use those smart variables inside the Edit Issue Field component.
