JSUTIL Field Validation using Regex on Story Points

I want to limit the value of story points to 1.2 or 3, so I have added a Regular Expression check of 


But when I enter a valid number, the validation fails.

When processing the validating the value, some where during the transition the value I typed 3, became 3.0 and the regular expression of "[1-3]" failed. I changed it to "[1-3](?:\.[0-9])?" and it works.

Steven, all number fields in JIRA are doubles. Apparently your regex validator didn't like comparing integers to doubles. :) https://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/java/nutsandbolts/datatypes.html

Could you add an image of the validation failing? I assume it throws an error...

Steven thanks for putting me on the right path. When I looked at the transition screen, I saw the message Field Story Points with actual value 3.0 does not match regular expression "[1-3]" I figured it out the issue.
