Typed Variable Declaration Error

Error encountered for the a similar formula below

2014-08-19 08:21:31,083 http-bio-8080-exec-14 ERROR USER1234 501x95052x2 1b6xxqy, /browse/HRT-2273 [innovalog.jmcf.fields.CalculatedTextField] CalculatedTextField: error evaluating formula: Sourced file: inline evaluation of: `` Object CG1 = issue.get("customfield_10800").iterator().next().getName().sub . . . '' : Typed variable declaration

<!-- @@Formula:

Object CG1 = issue.get("customfield_A").iterator().next().getName().substring(7,13);

Object CG2 = issue.get("customfield_B");

if ((issue.get("customfield_A")==null || issue.get("customfield_A").size() == 0) && (issue.get("customfield_B")==null)) return null;

if ("ABCDEF".equals(CG1)||"GHIJKL".equals(CG2)) return "YES";

if ("GHIJKL".equals(CG1)||"GHIJKL".equals(CG2)) return "NO";

return "Unavailable";


I'm getting results except when customfield_A is blank. It gives back nothing.

customfield_A is a multi-group field.

customfield_B is a pick-list field

I found the solution. I recoded it a bit and made sure the NULL CHECKS come first.

Please, check comment bellow

I have the same problem, what do you mean with "made sure the NULL CHECKS come first."? Thank you

You need to check if the custom field you have is BLANK or NULL before proceeding to the other conditions. Sorry for replying late.
