Script-Runner Network day between two custom field


Hi Folks,


I have below script for network days between two custom fields( Date field only). 

It gives me return value 0 always.

Please help to get the script corrected.



import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import java.sql.Timestamp
import java.time.DayOfWeek
import java.text.SimpleDateFormat;

def Plannedstartdate =ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_16160")

def dateB = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_16281")


// both custom fields are only date field.

if (!issue.getCustomFieldValue(Plannedstartdate) || !issue.getCustomFieldValue(dateB)) {
return null

def startdate = (issue.getCustomFieldValue(Plannedstartdate)as Timestamp).toLocalDateTime().toLocalDate()
def enddate = (issue.getCustomFieldValue(dateB) as Timestamp).toLocalDateTime().toLocalDate()

if (!enddate.isBefore(startdate)) {
return null

def weekend = EnumSet.of(DayOfWeek.SATURDAY, DayOfWeek.SUNDAY)
def workingDays = 0

while (enddate.isBefore(startdate)) {
if (!(enddate.dayOfWeek in weekend)) {
workingDays += 1

enddate = enddate.plusDays(1)

Try some debug message to see where it goes wrong.

Output the value of each date before. Then output the new date after each increment. You will be able to see if you log what's happening and where the logic might fail.

But at first glance, the fact that you start with expecting your endDate to be before your startDate looks weird.
