How to add priority value to mail notification subject?


I'm trying to add priroity of issue to the mail notification subject. According to this article I added the following string to the *.vm files (in <jira-install> /atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/templates/email/subject):


So complete .vm file looks like


($issue.key) $issue.priority: $issue.summary

But in e-mail I've got this:

[GenericEntity:Priority][id,4][description,Minor loss of function, or other problem where easy workaround is present.][sequence,4][statusColor,#006600][name,Minor][iconurl,/images/icons/priorities/minor.png]

I need to receive only a priority value like "Minor" or "Major" etc. How to approach this result?

Try $ OR $issue.getPriority().name

Thanks a lot! $ works!
