How do I specify multiple issue types in a LiveFields hook?

Following up on my previous question where I was given the following example:

if(argv["screen"] == "create-subtask" && argv["issueType"] == "Sub-task")

How would I apply it to multiple issue types?  Can I use "contains" or an array variable in place of the ==?

Hi Brian,

Yes, you can use contains routine.

A simple example would look like this:


string[] issueTypes = {"Bug", "Task"};
if (contains(issueTypes, argv["issueType"])) {
lfGlobalMessage("yes", "INFO");
} else {
lfGlobalMessage("no", "INFO");


Hope this helps,
