JMWE Conditional Execution

Ash Rising Star Nov 23, 2020

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/
