Treating the None field in Multilist as a value

Hello,

I am trying to write a script that will check if TBC is selected in a multilist selection on JIRA custom field but will let all other fields including None (Default value) Through.

This script allows all values except TBC and None through

def val = cfValues['Testing required Up/Downstream']*.value
if (val.contains("TBC")) {
return false;
} else {
return true;
}

I have tried this script to allow None through but it stops all values

def val = cfValues['Testing required Up/Downstream']*.value
if (val.contains("TBC")) {
return false;
} else if (val == null) {
return true;
} else {
return true;
}

Thanks in advanced for your help.

I think your second script is closest to what you need, but it's worth explaining what Jira is doing.  When you look at this field on an issue, there are three possible types of response:

A list of values that includes TBC (return false)

A list of values that does not include TBC (return true)

Nothing, because there are no values selected, although Jira displays "none" in lists or hides the field completely (I think you want to return true here too)

So, I might be a lazy coder and write:

if ( cfValues['Testing required Up/Downstream']*.value )

{

   if ( cfValues['Testing required Up/Downstream']*.value.contains("TBC")

   { return false; }

}

return true;

(That says "if there is a list of values, and one of them is TBC, false, but for other cases, where there is a list without it, or no list at all, return true)

Hello,

That was throwing the same error as my script. None was being seen as an error.

Finally got it to work though using the following line

!('TBC' in cfValues['Testing required Up/Downstream']*.value)

Thanks all for your help

I believe None is actually null in the database like Unresolved
