Regular Expression on Incoming Mail Handler

Hi to all,

I need your help configuring an Incoming Mail Handler with Rex ex content exclusion.

I need to strip the text after the second occurrence of the word "From".

I have checked on https://regex101.com/ this regex 

/^(?:.*?\KFrom){2}|>/s

 

The result is the one I expected:

the original text is

From: XXXX 
Any text

From: YYYY
Any text

 

The result applying the regex is:

From: XXXX 
Any text

From: YYYY
Any text

 

The highlighted text is exactly the string after which I need to strip the content.

 

When I try to insert the above regular expression on JIRA Incoming Mail Handler nothing happens, the email content is not stripped and all it is used to create the comment on the issue.

 

Any idea?

 

Thank you in advance

Regards

Arianna

Mail handler uses Perl5 regex (Perl5Util to be precise) to split the the input by given regex. If the result has more than 1 elements the first one will be used (everything before the regex match) otherwise the original text is used. I'm not a perl regex expert myself but you would need to get your regex to work under perl5.

 

 

Did you found a solution?

Not yet... :( Any idea? Thank you
