Question about the Calculated Date/time field

I have JIRA Miscellaneous Custom Fields add-on installed, and I'm try to setup a custom field of type Calculated Date/Time.

I want to know the number of days between when an issue is resolved, and when it has completed independent verification. I already have a custom field called "VerifyEnd" (FieldID=11200) that automatically posts the current date on transition out of the Verification state.

It seems like this forumula should work, but I'm not having any luck. Suggestions?

<!-- @@Formula: org.apache.commons.lang.time.DateUtils.addDays(issue.get("resolution_date"),("FieldId=11200")) -->

First of all, I don't see what you mean by "("FieldId=11200")" in your formula.

Then, I believe you want a date difference, not to add two dates. There are several examples in other questions:

Thanks. "("FieldId=11200")" is the FieldID of a custom field in my instance. I believe that is the correct syntax to have the formula recognize it.

I've never seen this syntax, and I'm positive it cannot be used in your context. Custom field names are in the form: "customfield_11200". So issue.get("customfield_11200") will return the value of that field.

Yep, you are right, I mis-read some instructions. Thanks! I'll see if this clears up my problem.
