parsing mode determines how the JWT expression parser interprets an expression. 

The available parsing modes depend on the context you are using the expression in. As an example, only the Logical mode is available if you configure a conditional execution in a workflow post function or that you can only use the Numeric mode if you want to set a number field using a parser expression.

Available parsing modes

Most functions will accept text values so casting values to text is a very powerful function

Additionally, you can directly transform a field value to text using the following syntax: %{...somefield}

You can write your text in basic text mode, and then switch to advanced text mode using Automatic parsing mode converter.

The text to be parsed will be automatically rewritten as a text expression. Now, you can simply make the modifications you require, making use of text formatting functions, or inserting math or time expressions where needed.

To update issue fields the parsing result will be cast to the expected value e.g. a user name will be cast to a user to update a user field like the assignee field.
