subtask + Scripted field

When using filters I can list the sub-task keys comma seperated.

What I want to be able to do is list its Summary or Description, probably comma or pipe seperated just as the issue keys. 

I am trying to use Custom Fields for this issue.subTask Objects...

But cant quite do it..

Any suggestions .. ?

You could create a scripted field with a script like this:

def summaryList = []
issue.getSubTaskObjects().each { subtask ->
return summaryList.join(', ')

It will get all of the sub-task objects of an issue, get the summary from each, and then add that summary to a list. You can then return the list and use the .join() method to display the list separated by commas.

Works like a charm.

Hi Joshua,

Can you help into below given question.

I am trying to connect SQL server database through groovy script. The script I am trying in Script runner plugin "Script Console". 

Every time I'm getting null value error its actually returns nothing we can say.

Following is the code I'm trying to run in script console.


import groovy.sql.Sql
import java.sql.Driver

def driver = Class.forName('').newInstance() as Driver

def props = new Properties()
props.setProperty("user", "jiratesting")
props.setProperty("password", "ricciricci")

def conn = driver.connect("jdbc:sqlserver://1W8N542;databaseName=jira", props)
def sql = new Sql(conn)

try {
sql.eachRow("select count(*) from pro") {
return (it)
} finally {


Please suggest if anyone knows the answer.

Thank You.
