JMWE Conditional Execution


Hi Community,


I'm trying to use conditional execution in JMWE addon.


Below is the condition I'm trying on two text fields. If there is a word approved or deferred text in the field i need to execute this condition.


No luck with the below condition.

{{ issue.get("customfield_14802") == /.*Approved.*/ or issue.get("customfield_14802") == /.*Deferred.*/ }}

Hi @Ash , you seem to want to use regular expressions in your test. In Groovy, the regex matcher operators are =~ (substring match) and ==~ (exact match). So you can try:

issue.get("customfield_14802") ==~ /.*Approved.*/ || issue.get("customfield_14802") ==~ /.*Deferred.*/

although that will also match "DisApproved" (because you didn't use a word begin/end pattern (\b) and won't match "approved" because you didn't use case-insensitive matching with (?i).

A better test would be:

issue.get("customfield_14802") =~ /(?i)\b(approved|deferred)\b/ 

Thank you @David Fischer _Appfire_ . Appreciate your help as always.
