How to do ".notequals", ".or", "else" conditions in Xporter?

I have a custom field that's a select list with "Yes" and "No" options for values. This works:

#{if (%{'${elmYnMigration}'.equals('Yes')})}
... show this content ...
#{end}

How does one do a "not equals" version?

Piling on... is there an "or" construct?  What about an "else"?

Thanks in advance for any feedback...

Hi @Gene Smilgiewicz

Currently Xporter for JIRA does not have an "else" statement, but you could use another if as workaround, example:

#{if (%{'${elmYnMigration}'==='Yes'})}
... show this content ...
#{end}
#{if (%{!'${elmYnMigration}'==='Yes'})}
... show other content ...
#{end}

Hi @Gene Smilgiewicz

Please try the following code:

#{if (%{'${elmYnMigration}'==='Yes'})}
…Show Content Here…
#{end}
#{if (%{!('${elmYnMigration}'==='Yes') || !${elmYnMigration}})}
…Show Other Content Here…
#{end}

What is the version of Xporter for JIRA that you're using ?

Thanks for chiming in, Fábio.

Without an #{else} I was forced to stack #{if} statements... an #{or} would be helpful.

BTW, your suggestion for not equals (#{if (%{!'${elmYnMigration}'==='Yes'})}) did not work for me.  Interesting variation of the Xporter syntax there.
