Trim string with ScriptRunner

Hi guys, hope you are doing great. I hope someone can help me with the following:

I have a text custom field (single line) that stores values like ''.

I need to trim the string before the '@' and copy that value in another text field (vía post-function).

So, if the original value is '', I need to store the value 'xyz' in another text field.

Thank you in advance for your help.

You want something like this... completely untested. Put this function first in the list of post-functions.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def emailCf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Email") 
def mailboxCf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Mailbox") 

def mailBox = (issue.getCustomFieldValue(emailCf) as String)?.replaceAll(/@.*/, '')
issue.setCustomFieldValue(mailboxCf, mailBox)

Jamie you are genious. It worked perfectly. smile

Thank you so much!


Hi @Jamie Echlin [Adaptavist], do you know how to accomplish something similar but lets assume that instead of  "@" I have "["....I am trying as /[.*  but it is throwing an error.



assert "bar" == "foo[bar".replaceAll(/.*\[/, '')

Thank you @Jamie Echlin [Adaptavist] worked.

I would reccomend to use split method for String like this:

CustomFieldManager cstFldMng = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager();
    cstFldMng.getCustomFieldObjectByName("where to set")
    ,( (String) issue.getCustomFieldValue(cstFldMng.getCustomFieldObjectByName("from field"))).split("@")[0]())

Thank you for your time Vasiliy. Unfortunetly it didn't work.
