How to unset checkbox with post function (JMWE)


I need to somehow unset specific value from checkbox options. I don't want to use additional add-on except (JIRA Misc Workflow Extensions and JIRA Suite Utilities). Is this possible?


  • Original state: checkbox1: optionA = true, optionB = false, optionC = true
  • Requested output: checkbox1: optionA = false, optionB = false, optionC = true

I'm trying to use Set field value (JMWE add-on) post function but it seems that syntax is allowing me only set specific value not unset. Because you need to add something like that [{"value":"optionA"}] value=constant, optionA=name of the value.

I would expect something like selectedValueID:[true|false] e.g. 12800:false

Hi Brian,

I managed to do my task in a different way but if you want to unset - use a post-function Set field value (JMWE add-on) and then use Nunjucks annotations and use for cycle and if construct. You need to just remove defined value from a collection (array).

 For example How to set MyCheckboxTitle value to false:


{% set output = "" %}
{% for item in CheckboxGroup %}
    {% if item.value != "MyCheckboxTitle" %}
        {% set output = output+item %}
    {% endif %}
{% endfor %}


 Be aware that the output MUST be in this kind of format:  



So may be you need adjust slightly the row "{% set output = output+item %}". I don't test it. Use e.g. Description field to see what is in the output variable.

Hope it helps.
