Simple scripted validator for summary

I have  a scripted validator checking the summary for "we are sorry". I was wondering if there is a way to catch all iterations of this phrase? (i.e. We Are Sorry, WE are SoRRy)


Right now I am using this:

! issue.getSummary().contains("we are sorry")

I could keep adding that line with the differences, but I was hoping for something a bit more efficient. Any help would be extremely appreciated.


PS. I have very little coding experience, but have been able to create scripts looking at examples.

Hi Tim,

You can have something like 

! issue.summary.toLowerCase().contains("we are sorry")

Which will actually, just for the comparison, transforms the summary to lower case ... :)

Hope that helps,


Hello Thanos,


That worked perfectly! Thank you very much!
