Xporter not working with conditionals in iteration, even with Javascript


I have a custom Checkboxes field and I would like to create a report with all possible values listed alongside a checkbox indicating whether the value is included.

For example, assume the `ImpactCategory` custom field has the possible values ["Safety", "Cybersecurity", "Patient Satifaction"]. If my issue included just Safety and Cybersecurity, I would like to output:

☒ Yes ☐ No
☒ Yes ☐ No
Patient Satifaction:
☐ Yes ☒ No

I have tried several approaches here and nothing has worked so far.

When I use this format, the report includes a comma-separated list of the checked values in the field.


However, when I try to iterate through the custom field, it fails. For example, nothing is printed when I use this syntax:

#{for ImpactCategory}

I have been able to use Javascript with the following syntax to split the comma-separated string into an array and then iterate through the array. However, it only prints the last item:

%{ var output; var c = '${ImpactCategory[10183]}'.split(','); for (var i = 0; i < c.length; i++) { c[i] }}

When I attempt to use conditional logic in the Javascript, it prints nothing. For example:

%{ var output; var c = '${ImpactCategory[10183]}'.split(','); for (var i = 0; i < c.length; i++) { if (c[i]) === "Cybersecurity" { output = c[i] } else { output = "No" }} output; }

I noticed a similar question here: However, even though the most recent comment says this is resolved, the solution does not work.

Is there any way to achieve this functionality?

Thanks in advance for your help!
