I have a select box whose values are in the format of:
"1 - stuff; more stuff; and other stuff"
I am trying to use smart values in an automation to get the 1. This seems straight forward and I should be able to do

My suspicion is that it is returning a non-string value an the functions are therefore failing? How can I call string functions on select box values?

Also, using the custom field ID instead of the name is safer because sometimes duplicate field names exist in instances that cause the rule to fail. The custom field ID can be given to you by your system admins, or found by right-clicking with the browser inspector over the field name. In Jira Cloud, you may need to do this on the issue creation screen.
