We are tying to create a listener on VersionCreate. The listener will check if the version matches a particular pattern and execute some steps.  here is the code:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.event.project.VersionCreateEvent
import java.text.SimpleDateFormat
import com.atlassian.jira.project.version.VersionManager
import com.atlassian.jira.project.version.Version
import com.atlassian.jira.jql.parser.JqlQueryParser
import com.atlassian.jira.web.bean.PagerFilter
import java.util.regex.*

customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def issueService = ComponentAccessor.issueService
def projectManager = ComponentAccessor.projectManager
def user = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.getLoggedInUser()
def project = projectManager.getProjectObjByKey("TESTS")
def newIssueType = ComponentAccessor.issueTypeSchemeManager.getIssueTypesForProject(project).find { == "Test Plan" }
def event = event as VersionCreateEvent

// Construct The Pattern to Match on SP
Pattern patternSP = Pattern.compile('SP')
log.warn("Pattern : ${patternSP}")
log.warn("Version Name : ${}")
Matcher matcherSP = patternSP.matcher(
log.warn("Matcher : ${matcherSP}")
log.warn("Matching Results : ${matcherSP.find()}")

// Construct The Pattern to Match on HF
Pattern patternHF = Pattern.compile('HF')
log.warn("Pattern : ${patternHF}")
log.warn("Version Name : ${}")

Matcher matcherHF = patternHF.matcher(
log.warn("Matcher : ${matcherHF}")
log.warn("Matching Results : ${matcherHF.find()}")

if(matcherSP.find() && !matcherHF.find())
.warn("SP Release")
else if (!matcherSP.find() && !matcherHF.find())
log.warn("Major Release")
else { "HF will not have any test plans"}

But this always should the message "Major Release" for any value that is entered for the version. Here is what should be displayed:

2019.10 : "Major Release"

2019.10-SP1 : "Service Pack"

2019.10-SP1HF : "HF will not have any test plans"

Is this implementation is correct? Is there an alternate way to implement this logic?

hi Krishna, I am also looking for same kind of fix. I need to update the trigger for release version using Regex, for example, Release version = 2020.01.0.1
