How to Calculate Due Date based on Priority field?

Hi, guys need your help here!! :)

I create a field type Calculated (scripted) Date/Time Field (JMCF app) and I want to calculate Due Date based on the creation date and the Priority, including weekends.

For example, if the priority is Critical should add 2 days based on the created date and that's the Due Date. Create date 18/08/20 + 2 = Due Date 20/08/20

So I ran with this solution

I tried to change it a little bit removing the part that excludes the weekends and adding the priorities that we work with,

But in many cases, I got Null as a result or will calculate only this part default : return date(issue.get("created"),5);

I'm not that good coding I'm just trying to use the logic here and is not helping me,

If anyone had an idea of how to calculate this will appreciate very much the help!!


Best regards,

Hi Ariel,

The formula for the Due date field should be: 

switch ({
case "Critical" : return issue.created + 2
case "Medium" : return issue.created + 4



Thanks, you saved me!!!
