Write Field Content to new comment but format string first Edited


I'm trying to write a string from a custom field as a new comment during a transition. This worked so far using " following text parsed in basic mode will be copied to New comment" post function. The problem is, the string needs to be reformated first, because what I recieve now is this:


{"id":"Just a Question?","type":"todo"} ,

{"id":"And another Question?","type":"todo"}



What I want to be written as a comment is this:


Just a Question?

And another Question?


Is that possible (knowing this great add-on, I'm sure it is ;-)) and if so, how?

JIRA Software Version: 7.5.0

Workflow Toolbox 2.2.42

Thank you very much!

Kind regards,
