Sum up custom field values with ScriptRunner

I have a custom field, Credits used, at the issue level.  I want to sum this at the project level, and using ScriptRunner's aggregateExpression function I think I can do something like this:


 project in projectMatch() and issueFunction in aggregateExpression("Total Credits Used", "Creditsused.sum()")


Is the space in the field name going to cause problems?  If so, do I need to create a new field with no spaces (Creditsused)?  Enclose the field name in single quotes in the function?

 project in projectMatch() and issueFunction in aggregateExpression("Total Credits Used", "'Credits used'.sum()")

Hi Chris,

I can confirm that it is not possible to sum up values in ScritpRunner for Jira Cloud currently using JQL as the aggregateExpression() JQL function is only available in the Server version of the add on.

You can see all the JQL functions which the server version  provides inside of the docuemntation page located here.

The reason that we are unable to provide this functionality in Jira Cloud is due to the differences in the frameworks between Jira Server and Jira Cloud which means that no API exists to allow us to provide this functionality inside of Jira Cloud.

You can find further information on the differences between the Server and Cloud versions of the plugins inside of the documentation page located here.

Is there any other way to do this in Jra Cloud using ScriptRunner?

Hi Chris,

Thank you for your response.

Unfortanetly there is no other way with ScriptRunner to sum up all values for a field for every issue in a project as you would need to do this using JQL and ScriptRunner for Jira Cloud does not provide any JQL functions to achieve this requirement.
