Filter Jira issue based on Sumup field?

We have a Sumup field in our Jira instance by name "Σ Time Spent".

Now we need to write JQL Query to display all issue with "Σ Time Spent" >=20h.

But I don't find that field while writing JQL Query.

Please advise.

Hi Vinay,


the field "Σ Time Spent" is not searchable. So you can't use it in a JQL Query. The field "Time Spent" is searchable.



You can use ScriptRunner to create a ScriptedField with the same content as the field "Σ Time Spent".


The script of the field looks like:


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.AggregateTimeTrackingCalculator;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.AggregateTimeTrackingCalculatorFactory;
AggregateTimeTrackingCalculatorFactory timeTrackingCalculatorFactory = ComponentAccessor.getComponentOfType(AggregateTimeTrackingCalculatorFactory.class);
AggregateTimeTrackingCalculator calculator = timeTrackingCalculatorFactory.getCalculator(issue);
if ( !issue.isSubTask() )
	return calculator.getAggregates(issue).getTimeSpent();
return 0;


Now you can configure the right searcher "Duration searcher" for this field:


Admin > Issues > Custom Fields > Edit

Afterwards, you are able to define a JQL with that field:

Hope you enjoy our add-on!

Have a nice day!

Using Trello to manage events

As a Jira power user, I was at first doubtful that Trello could benefit my workflow. Jira already uses boards (ones you can customize!), so why would I even need to use Trello?! In this post you will...
