Using calculated number field Edited

I'm trying to use a calculated number field to calculate "weight/urgency" using two custom(severity and priority) fields.


<!-- @@Formula:

int r1 = 0;
int r2 = 0;

String severity= issue.get("customfield_10705");
String priority= issue.get("customfield_10704");

r1 = 4;
else if("S2".equals(severity))
r1 = 3
else if("S3".equals(severity))
r1 = 2;
else if("S4".equals(severity))
r1 = 1;
r1 = 0;

r2 = 4;
else if("P2".equals(priority))
r2 = 3
else if("P3".equals(priority))
r2 = 2;
else if("P4".equals(priority))
r2 = 1;
r2 = 0;

return (r1 * r2);



This is what I'm using and it doesn't seem to work.

== doesn't work for strings. You need to use the equals method instead: 

if ("P1".equals(priority))

Hey David, thanks for the answer.

It still doesn't seem to work.

Is there anything else I might be doing wrong? 

Hey David, I've implemented the fix and it's still not working. Also, the field doesn't show up on the view screen.

What do you think I'm doing wrong?
