Pull text from link in comment


When users post a specific link in the comments under a card, for example: I'd like to create a rule that extracts this last part, the ticket number, from the link and post it in a custom field named ticketnumber.


I would love to hear if this is possible :)


Thanks in advance.

Try this

when a comment containing "{* }{*}" is posted to a card, set custom field "Reference" to "{wildcard1}"

@Maarten Gelderman @milynnus I think you need to remove the space after the first *

@Iain Dooley 

I tested it before my post. This is because am assuming that there is a space between the url and text after it. In any case, @Maarten Gelderman you should test it.
