Format Number using Smart Values

Hopefully this is an easy one...

I've got an Automation rule that sends an email with a few customfield values. Only problem is it outputs numbers like:

Units: 167.0

Where my users would like to see this displayed as:

Units: 167

I tried using some text functions, like {{issue.customfield_12345.remove(".0")}}, but can't get it to work. Is there an easy way to format the number or treat it like text?

Greetings, all!

It appears the number formatting was recently added:

Here is an example with for very large story point estimates :^)

{{issue.story points.format("###,###,###")}}

Best regards,

Hi Tim,

You can use our MATH functions to perform operations on custom number fields in Jira. In your example you should be able to remove the decimal place by using the ROUND function with 0 precision i.e.

{{#=}}ROUND({{issue.customfield_12345}}, 0){{/}}

You can find more information in the docs here:

Nice - I missed the Round function. Thanks @Yvan Martin 

This worked for me as well @Yvan Martin

Would you know how to add a comma separator for thousand (10000 >> 1,000)?
