Why aggregateExpression is not working?

Hi community!

I am trying to apply

 project = AUDTUDO and issueFunction in aggregateExpression("Sum of original estimate", "originalEstimate.sum()")

but no success - as you can see in the attached image, I face the message

"Unable to find JQL function 'aggregateExpression(Sum of original estimate, originalEstimate.sum())'."

Before this message, I faced one about issueFuncyion. I have created an issueFunction customized field as text one and now I see the message above.

Hi Elis,

Thank you for your question. 

I can confirm that in JIRA Cloud you can only use the issueFunction() JQL function provided by ScriptRunner on the Enhanced Search page as described in the documentation here.

This is due to the way that Atlassian restrict how the JQL functions can interact with their infrastructure meaning we must run them in a sandbox process.

However I can confirm that the aggregateExpression JQL function is not available in ScriptRunner for Jira Cloud as described here, due  to the fact that Atlassian do not provide the same API's as in the server version which are required to create this function.

If this answer has solved your issue can you please accept it in order to mark this answer as correct for users who are searching for a similar issue.



Thanks, @Kristian Walker _Adaptavist_ for your reply.

Taking advantage of your attention, do you suggest another plugin to replace aggregateExpression? I am looking for something that helps to sum all worked log for a given project on a given date range and send it by email weekly. If I am able to define a query, JIRA subscripts can solve the mail sending to me.


Thanks in advance, Elis

Hi Elis,

I do not another plugin that would provide this JQL function myself but would suggest searching the Atlassian marketplace to see if one exists.
