How to remove null in Cascading select?

This is the code im using to get the value in CustomField:

$issue.getCustomFieldValue("customfield_10070") or

$customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_10070").getValue($issue)

it gets the CustomField value but it has a {null=} or {null=" ", 1=" "}.

Sample:

{null=Cloud9, 1=Web}

Im using velocity, this code is for notification template.

how to remove the {null=" ", 1=" "}?

The CustomField is a Cascading Select.

Help!

Thanks,

Hey all,

i've build a separate field-template for cascading select fields. Just replace the XXXXX with your customfield-ID and in your mail the content will be displayed like "ParentValue - ChildValue".

 

#disable_html_escaping()
<tr>
	<th>$stringUtils.leftPad($issue.getCustomField("customfield_XXXXX").name, $padSize):</th>
	<td>
		#set ($customfield=$issue.getCustomFieldValue("customfield_XXXXX"))
		#set ($start_par=$stringUtils.indexOf($customfield.toString(), '='))
		#set ($start_par=$start_par+1)
		#set ($start_child=$stringUtils.lastIndexOf($customfield.toString(), '='))
		#set ($start_child=$start_child+1)
		#set ($ParentValue=$stringUtils.substring($customfield.toString(), $start_par, $stringUtils.indexOf($customfield.toString(), ',')))
		#set ($ChildValue=$stringUtils.substring($customfield.toString(), $start_child, $stringUtils.lastIndexOf($customfield.toString(), '}')))
		$ParentValue - $ChildValue
	</td>
</tr>

 

This works atleast for 6.3.8.

I met an Atlassian person at last year's conference, and here is what he told me:

#if($issue.getCustomFieldValue("customfield_10000"))
#set( $cfValue = $issue.getCustomFieldValue("customfield_10000"))
$cfValue.getFirstValueForNullKey() - $cfValue.getFirstValueForKey("1")
#end
(replace customfield_10000 with an id for your custom field in both spots!).
This worked in JIRA 4.5, but it's not working in 5.2 right now.

Hello,

Is there a workaround for the 5.1 version? Indeed, the function "getFirstValueForKey("1")" returns empty.

Thanks.

Hello,

I found a temporary solution (for example in a templates/email/html/includes/fields/myCustomField.vm):

#disable_html_escaping()
#set ($value = $issue.getCustomFieldValue("customfield_10000").toString())
#if ($stringUtils.isNotBlank($value))
##Example $value: {null=Foo, 1=Bar}
#set ($childValue=$stringUtils.chop($stringUtils.substringAfterLast($value,'=')))
#if ($stringUtils.isNotBlank($childValue))
<tr valign="top">
    <td style="color:${textColour};font-family:${textFontFamily};font-size:${textSize};padding:0 10px 10px 0;white-space:nowrap;">
        <strong style="font-weight:normal;color:${textSubtleColour};">My Field:</strong>
    </td>
    <td style="color:${textColour};font-family:${textFontFamily};font-size:${textSize};padding:0 0 10px 0;width:100%;">
        $textutils.htmlEncode($childValue)
    </td>
    ##display "My Field: Bar" only
</tr>
#end
#end

Hi all, ive just used this to select the second string in a Cascading Select. with Version 6.0 of Jira

#set ($value = $issue.getCustomFieldValue("customfield_10000").toString())
#if ($stringUtils.isNotBlank($value))
#set ($childValue=$stringUtils.chop($stringUtils.substringAfterLast($value,'=')))
#if ($stringUtils.isNotBlank($childValue))
$textutils.htmlEncode($childValue)
#end
#end

I have tried @Aaron Roddis code but I get the following error:

No such property: value for class: groovy.lang.Binding

Any ideas how to parse cascading select list without null?

<% out << issue.getCustomFieldValue(componentManager.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObject("customfield_XXXXX")).values()*.value%>
