JMWE Create / Clone Issue - Help with label formatting? Edited

Claudine K Jan 11, 2018

Hello. I am using the JMWE Create / Clone issue function, and have a formatting question.

Under 'Set fields of new issue', I would like to have the new issue's labels be:


Copy all labels from current issue. Add label 'xyz'. If current issue has label 'abc', remove it.

So that I would end up with:

Current issue labels: abc def ghi 

New issue labels: def ghi xyz


I have tried various Groovy syntax, but keep getting errors. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

You would need to select "Set field value from Groovy" and write the following Groovy expression.

def labels = issue.get("Labels").findAll{
it.label != "abc"
return labels
