I need help with updating scripts for Scriptrunner for Jira upgrade

I have scripts that I did not create in JIRA that need to be updated for the JIRA 7 migration. I don't know Groovy. I was wondering if there is someone that can walk me through one of the scripts so I can understand what the changes are and how to test the script. Here is one of the scripts:

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.mail.Email
import com.atlassian.mail.server.MailServerManager
import com.atlassian.mail.server.SMTPMailServer
import java.text.DateFormat
import groovy.time.TimeCategory
ComponentManager componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance()
MailServerManager mailServerManager = componentManager.getMailServerManager()
SMTPMailServer mailServer = mailServerManager.getDefaultSMTPMailServer()
if (mailServer) {
    def x = getCustomFieldValue("Severity")
    def msg = ""
    def today = new Date()
    def plainFormatter = DateFormat.instance
    def created = issue.getCreated()
    use( TimeCategory ) {
        switch (x) {
            case 'Code Red':
                msg = created + 3.days
            case 'Critical':
                msg = created + 7.days
            case 'High':
                msg = created + 7.days
            case 'Medium':
                msg = created + 7.days
            case 'Low':
                msg = created + 21.days
                msg = ""

The first tip is to use the \{code\} macro, that makes it much easier to read.

I don't see any particular problem with this script field, other than some of the variables aren't used. Doesn't it work?

Pretty much everything you need should be at https://scriptrunner.adaptavist.com/latest/jira/releases/UpgradingToJira7.html

Using Trello to manage events

As a Jira power user, I was at first doubtful that Trello could benefit my workflow. Jira already uses boards (ones you can customize!), so why would I even need to use Trello?! In this post you will...
