Trying to use spaces in jira script runner built in function parentOf()


I'm trying to create a new filter in jira with the help of a Script Runner built in script called parentOf().

The problem i'm faceing is that my project name has a space-character in it.

issueFunction in parentsOf("project = My Project and status = Open")

And this returns: NoViableAltException(34@[584:1: operand returns [Operand operand] : ( EMPTY | str= string | number= numberString | fn= func | l= list );])

I know that you can specify a custom field like cf[10001] for example. Can one specify a project in a similar fashion? Or like in PHP with single and bouble quotes 'project = "My Project"'? Or I'm i screwed? ;)

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Best regards

You could use the project key there, or use single quotes around My Project.

Ah! Thank you. I used the single quotes and i worked!

I never tried to use the single quotes inside the double ones. I only tried the other way around.

I'm very greatful!
