JIRA Automation: How to use Smart Fields split() function

I am trying to create a rule that lets me copy an IP address from one field to another, but inserting zeroes in order to make it sortable.

 

i.e.

IP_Field1 == 192.168.0.10

desired outcome:

IP_Field2 == 192.168.000.010

 

My thought was to use a combination of split() and leftpad() to accomplish this.  Please note, I am not a developer and I am attempting to do this just be RTFM-ing the instructions found here: https://codebarrel.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/AUTO4J/pages/51691794/Working+with+Strings

The instructions show how to access the "first" value in the split, but I am not able to figure how to get the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th octets.

 

Any suggestions?

Hello,

Could you try

{{issue.reporter.IP_Field1.split(" .")[1]}}

for the second octet.

Though I did not check it.

Hi Alexey, thanks for responding.  Unfortunately that did not work. 

 

This works:

{{issue.reporter.IP_Field1.split(".").first}}

Which is same as example in documentation and produces: 192

 

This also works:

{{issue.reporter.IP_Field1.split(".")}}

and produces: 192, 168, 0, 10
