Number Field (remove . value) - How?

Hi guys,

So I have a number field and I want to remove the decimal value since this field will only be whole values. How do I do that? When the field is merged into an email that is sent it will display 2.0 instead of 2 that I entered.

Now I read this page

And I found this

issue.summary = issue.summary.replaceAll("\\.0")

But I have no idea where to input this or if this is the best solution? I am a newbie learning Jira so detailed instruction on how to solve this would be appreciated.

That bit of code there only works if you have Script Runner.

You could use a regular expression workflow validator, but that would not help you for when users use the Edit screen or inline editing.

A regular expression to match only integers could be as follows: 


Hi @Josh Steckler appreciate your reply.

But can I use your answer? Because if edited it will not work or what?

Does following mean that highest value is 9? Or it just removes the decimal?
