Custom field to count number of Issues matching Status Category by Organization

Using JIRA Service Management and JIRA Cloud

We have a service where customers are limited to X number of In Progress requests at once - depending on their subscription level.

I need a custom field visible on each Request, that shows how many Issues that Organization has Open that match the category "In Progress".

How would I write a script to do this?

Hi Leon,

Thank you for your question.

I can confirm that ScriptRunner for Jira Cloud can allow you to create a custom field using a Script Listener that calculates a value using either a Script Listener as shown here or that calculates a value using a Scripted Field as shown here.

Using this you would be able to write a script which called the Search for issues API in order to search for issues that match your request using a JQL search and then to count the number of issues returned and to store these in the field.

I can confirm that the example located here shows an example of how the Search for issues API works and can be used as a reference guide to help you to create the script that you require.
