Agregate Expression on Dashboard

Script Runner add-on for JIRA provides experimental feature Aggregate Expression -

I am curious if those results can be somehow embedded on a JIRA dashboard.

There is a REST Endpoint ( rest/scriptrunner-jira/latest/jqlfunctions/aggregateResult ) built into ScriptRunner that returns the results of the aggregateExpression function. You could send a GET request to it by fetching the a URL like the following, where the jql query parameter is a URL encoded JQL statment using aggregateExpression: <your-jira-instance-base-url>/rest/scriptrunner-jira/latest/jqlfunctions/aggregateResult?jql=project%3DPROJ+and+issueFunction+in+aggregateExpression("Expr"%2C+"timespent.sum()") 

The above is equivalent to this JQL:

project=PROJ and issueFunction in aggregateExpression("Expr", "timespent.sum()")

Getting that content into a Dasbhoard is a little trickier.

One path would be to use a Dashboard gadget that could take the output and display it. You could use something free like the Universal Gadget for JIRA plugin, or write your own gadget

Another path would be to wire the results into the UI using Javascript by way of a ScriptRunner UI customization. You'd most likely need to write some JavaScript (probably saved in your script roots as a web resource). That's likely to be pretty involved, and to require a fair bit of knowledge about front-end web development.

Of note, we have a request in our backlog (SRJIRA-2104) to add Scripted Dashboard gadgets to ScriptRunner, which would constitute a third way. That said, it's not on the immediate roadmap for SR for JIRA.

Good point, thanks for advice.

Any new update on this feature ? Is there a way now of displaying the results of an aggregate expression in a dashboard ?

Not yet, but keep a watch on, as we will update that issue when it is added to the sprint & worked on.

Hello - 

Is it possible somehow to show the results of an aggregateExpression on the Dashboard via HTML on the Text gadget?


Any thoughts?

Not out of the box, though if you'd like something like that, you should vote for
