How to use simple scripted validator to check the Fix Version field

I have looked and tried several different way of trying to solve my problem with the Simple scripted validator but have been unsuccessful.  What I want to do is verify that the Fix Version field is not set to the value of "Future Release".  However I can't seem to make it work.  I have tried each of the following conditions in the Script Workflow transistion:

issue.fixVersions != 'Future Release'
issue.fixVersion != 'Future Release'
issue.fixVersion?.name != 'Future Release'
issue.fixVersions?.name != 'Future Release'


When I am done editing the transition I then publish the workflow and test an issue to see if it will transition on or if I get the error message.  It will always make the transition regardless of what I have in the Fix Version field.

@Matt Moody:

! ('Future Release' in issue.fixVersions*.name)

because issue.fixVersions is a Collection.

@venkat - same solution.

That took care of it. Thanks.

I am also facing the same issue. We want to put a "simple scripted validator" for fix version field as part of a workflow transition.

Scenario:- fix version != Backlog

Assume fix version for a issue is Release1, when trying to fetch the value using $issue.fixVersions, it's always returning the value in [], in our case [Release1] is the value returned. (can use 'send a custom email' built in script to verify this )

 

I tried all the below combinations for 'Simple scripted validator' with no success

issue.fixVersions != 'Release1'

issue.fixVersions.name != 'Release1'

issue.fixVersions != '[Release1]'

issue.fixVersions.name != '[Release1]'

 

 

your missing the *

issue.fixVersions*.name !=   'Release1'

@Jamie Echlin [Adaptavist] , can help us on this.

 

Thanks in Advance
