Progress on JIRA Kanban cards

Is there a way to show the % Progress on a Kanban board card? We have the Portfolio configuration in place where an issue has child issues, progress is calculated as follows:

Progress = Number of resolved child issues / Total number of child issues

Hello Jessica,

I don't believe there is a way to do this out of the box, but it quite easy to achieve using scriptrunner.

You can simply add a scripted field and associate it with your board card. The script would be something like :

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.config.SubTaskManager

SubTaskManager subTaskManager = ComponentAccessor.getSubTaskManager();
Collection subTasks = issue.getSubTaskObjects();

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager();
def customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("<Custom Field Name>");
def sum = 0;
def total = 0;

for (currIssue in subTasks)
if (currIssue.getStatusObject().getName() == "<Closed or resolved status>")
sum ++;

return (sum/total)

 I did not test the code, but I started from a script I found here :

Let me know if you need further help!

Best regards,
