Grrovy script help

Hi All,

I'm looking for to add some random numbers to a jira custom field ("Actual time") by below groovy script as part of workflow transition. Everything works fine but couldn't remove the decimal part from below number, ie, here I need the custom field value as "1". Please suggest how its possible?

def time = 1.5166666667

IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager();
CustomFieldManager cfm=ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager();

def MeD =cfm.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Actual time");
issue.setCustomFieldValue(MeD, String.valueOf(time));

Try String.valueOf(time as int)

Thanks it works :)

Also, currently the custom field "time" is free text field. Which all changes needs to be done in code level for changing the field type to number field. Now getting below error,

java.lang.ClassCastException: java.lang.String cannot be cast to java.lang.Double

Please suggest.

Make sure you set a Double as custom field value. You can chain "as" commands.

issue.setCustomFieldValue(MeD, (time as int) as Double);
