Java syntax error after upgrading to Jira 7

I am getting syntax errors (but the field seems to still work) since updating to JIRA 7.

Any advice?

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
Issue issue = issue
if (getCustomFieldValue("Bug Score - Total") >= 15) {
	SLADate = org.apache.commons.lang.time.DateUtils.addDays(issue.getCreated(), 7);
}else if (getCustomFieldValue("Bug Score - Total") <= 14 && getCustomFieldValue("Bug Score - Total") >= 10) {
	SLADate = org.apache.commons.lang.time.DateUtils.addDays(issue.getCreated(), 21);
}else if (getCustomFieldValue("Bug Score - Total") <= 9 && getCustomFieldValue("Bug Score - Total") >= 7) {
	SLADate = org.apache.commons.lang.time.DateUtils.addDays(issue.getCreated(), 35);
}else if (getCustomFieldValue("Bug Score - Total") < 7) {
	return null;
}else {
	return null;
return SLADate;

It's probably not worth worrying about, but you can get rid of the type checking errors by adding type information:


getCustomFieldValue("Bug Score - Total") as Long >= 15

assuming it is a Long.
