Script runner - conditions in custom email


I'm using JIRA 6.3.7 and Script Runner 3.0.6.

I would like to create a script that send a custom email when a ticket with a specific label is created.
So, it seems that the "send a custom email" script listener is made for this. But I fail in filling the conditions so that the email is sent only when the label is there.

What is the correct syntax for labels please?

labels in ("mylabel")


In this listener, i entered the project key, the action (ticket created), email template and subject.

With this, i don't receive anything, with or without "mylabel" as label in the ticket.
Should I add something?

I previously tried with no condition, it works. I tried with "labels : 'mylabel' " and i received an email for every ticket^^.


Thanks smile

Something along the lines of this should work
