Xporter template condition on epic name


I'm trying to export UserStories with an custom Xporter template and have the epic name in the export if the UserStory belongs to an Epic.

The syntax bellow works if there the UserStory belongs to an Epic, but if not I get this text: '${Epic Link.Epic Name}'.

%{('${Epic Link.Epic Name}'.length > 0) ? '${Epic Link.Epic Name}': '-'}     


Any ideas?

Many thanks!

Hi @Loredana,

You can do this: 

Link.Epic Name}'.indexOf('Epic Link.Epic Name’) > 0) ? '-': '${Epic
Link.Epic Name}'}

It's not a good solution but works.




Great! That works! Many thanks!!! Loredana

A New Feature(Issue) was created. The means is to provide a new property that indicates you if the issue has an Epic Link. You can follow its status here: http://jira.xpand-it.com/browse/XPORTER-306
