doIfEqual(OrElse) seem not to work


I am new to Gatling/Scala.
I am trying to execute requests depending on status of previous one. I want to use doIfEquals. It fails.
To debug I have tried using doIfEqualsOrElse. I have printed in console the value of status: it is correct: 201 after issue creation.
But my condition is never true whereas it should be ! I don’ t understand why.
I am using 2.2.2.

Any help appreciated.

.doIfEqualsOrElse("${createStatus}", “201”){

status is an Int, not a String.

OK. This is what I was expected.
I was going to ask you to help more when I thought I could just remove " characters.
It works now.
Sorry for disturbance… And thank you very much for quick feedback
