What is the correct JSON code to pass a smart multi select field to Components?

Erin Smith June 3, 2022

Hi Team,

 

I have a multi-select field in my Confiform that passes to the Component field in Jira. Normally I would code this as "components" : [ [entry.FieldName.asArrayOfKVPairs(name)] ].

The field is a Smart Dropdown. Normally I would pass a smart drop down value with this code: "components" : [ {"name": "[entry.FieldName.ColumnName]" } ].

But, as this is a multi-select Smart Dropdown, I need both qualifiers: .asArrayOfKVPairs(name) and .ColumnName

How can I combine both qualifiers so it passes all selected choices and passes the correct piece of the smart dropdown value?

 

Thanks.

Hi

With smart fields you have a "bridge" to another form, and for multi-select smart fields the list of IDs referencing the other records is stored (to form a "bridge" to other form's data)

So, you will need a transformation to get the value from the referenced form

"components" : [ [entry.FieldName.transform(ColumnName).asArrayOfKVPairs(name)] ]

So, what is exactly happens... You ask ConfiForms to get the value from field FieldName, then ask it to see if there is a ColumnName field/property in what it returns on the 1st step and put those values into the list and then reformat with asArrayOfKeyPairs (each value found in the list)
