JIRA 5.2.11 Display a different format for number custom field not working like described in docs

Hey,

I recently upgraded JIRA which I had customized to display a custom field in different format according to this documentation:

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/How+to+display+a+different+format+for+the+Number+customfield

I changed:

WEB-INF/classes/templates/plugins/fields/view/view-number.vm
under the JIRA web application and replaced:
$!numberTool.format($value)
with:
$value.longValue()

After the upgrade to 5.2.11 every number field shows $value.longValue() instead of the actual number. The update added the disable HTML escaping and TODO REENABLE to the template...

Any ideas?

Cheers

Try $!value.longValue()

That's resulting in no values being displayed at all...

Hmm. That suggests that the 'value' variable is unset or null. Not sure where to take it from here, though.

Any new ideas on that one?

you may get response from atlassian by updating this issue, but i am not sure!

I'm not sure why but all of a sudden it works...
