Using Jira cloud & script runner creating a calculated scripted field with error

I created 5 numeric custom fields for the HELPDESK project. These fields are not used for every ticket in the project, but when they are used all 5 are mandatory.

I have a 6th numeric custom field and using script runner I am trying to fill this field based on an equation from the 5 fields. 

I am using jira cloud so finding a solution on REST API. 

(I am not a developer)


Getting the below Error:

The scripted field ran successfully, but returned an invalid type. Please return a number    null



def input1CfId = 'customfield_10046'
def input2CfId = 'customfield_10047'
def input3CfId = 'customfield_10048'
def input4CfId = 'customfield_10049'
def input5CfId = 'customfield_10050'
def outputCfId = 'customfield_10060'
def projectKey = "HELPDESK"

def input1 = issue.fields[input1CfId] as Integer
def input2 = issue.fields[input2CfId] as Integer
def input3 = issue.fields[input3CfId] as Integer
def input4 = issue.fields[input4CfId] as Integer
def input5 = issue.fields[input5CfId] as Integer

if (input1 == null || input2 == null || input3 == null || input4 == null || input5 == null) {"Calculation using ${input1}, ${input2}, ${input3}, ${input4}, and ${input5} was not possible")
return 0

def output = input1 * input2 * input3 * input4 * input5

if (output == (issue.fields[outputCfId] as Integer)) {"already been updated")

//.queryString("overrideScreenSecurity", Boolean.TRUE)
.header("Content-Type", "application/json")
(outputCfId): output as Integer


Can someone help me please?

The error message and the last line of your script combine to explain it.  The last line says "asString()", which converts the output to a string.  But you've set the field to be a number.

You just need to line up the types of output.

Sorry Nic, could you please help further? I am not familiar with coding.

You either need to target a text field for the output, or have your script return a number.  To do the second, remove the .asString as a start
