MISC Custom Fields: Calculated text field based on issuetype

I am trying to populate a text field based on issue type:

<!-- @@Formula:
String s = issue.get("issuetype").getName();
if (s == "Other") return "This is of issue type other";

s is getting populated with "Other", however, when I compare it in if statement I do not see the output.

You can cast the value, that should work

if (s.equals("Change Relationship")) 
	return (int)issue.get("customfield_11501");



Awesome! Thanks Peter smile

Hi Peter,

I am trying to calculate a number field but I do not want to display the decimal point. Is there a way to convert a field value to whole number?

This is giving no result. customfield_11501 value is 51 and it displays 51.0 when I display it as it is.

if (s.equals("Change Relationship"))
return numberTool.format(value);



Yup, that worked and it's Java implementation. Things makes so much more sense now laugh
