Sorting and searching of scripted number field does not work

Hi there,


I have a scripted number field which gives me the number of requirement tests for a story. The script only executes a JQL (type = Testfall AND issue in requirementTests(" + issue.key + ")) and returns the search count as double value. This works fine.

When I try to use this field in issue search I get the results displayed but can not use it in search or while sorting issue by this field value.

Here the script:

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.jql.parser.JqlQueryParser
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.query.Query
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser

def jqlQueryParser = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(JqlQueryParser)
def searchService = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(DefaultSearchService)
def ApplicationUser user = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.getLoggedInUser()

if (user != null && user.isActive()) {
// edit this query to suit
Query query = jqlQueryParser.parseQuery("type = Testfall AND issue in requirementTests(" + issue.key + ")")
if (searchService.searchCount(user, query).doubleValue()) {
return searchService.searchCount(user, query).doubleValue()
} else {
return 0


Is there anyone who can help me?


Best Regards

I have updated Scriptrunner to Version 6.13.1 but sorting and searching does still not work. What can I do else?

I'd raise this directly with the SR support team.

The numeric scripted field I've got that returns like yours does works fine when the number-range searcher is selected for it.  Although I have a nagging doubt it returns a long rather than a double, I can't imagine that would be the answer.

In the script settings, is the output template set to be a number field?

When you go to Custom fields -> Your scripted field -> Edit, what do you have set for a "searcher" for it?

Hi Nic,

i already tried number search for exact number and number range.



Did you re-index after changing the searcher?
