GroovyScript that saves the number of links of a JIRA into a custom field

Hey everyone, 

I need to show (on a dashboard) the number of links a JIRA has. I've looked into plugins (like SnapMetrics) but I believe the best way is to write a Groovy Script that essentially calls issue in linkedIssues([issueid]) and then stores the result in a custom field of the issue. I can then display the custom field on the dashboard. 

My coding is rusty, however, and I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction as to how I would go about this? 

Thanks in advance,

Assuming you have Scriptrunner - create a new scripted field, with a number searcher, and set for a numeric output.

Then the script you need can be condensed down to one active line:

return issueLinkManager.getLinkCollectionOverrideSecurity(issue).size()

Many thanks Nic, 

Do I need to import a specific com.atlassian class? I ask because I am receiving an error stating: 

groovy.lang.MissingPropertyException: No such property: issueLinkManager for class: Script44 at

Thanks again, 


Just to mention that I experimented with adding the following: 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager

def issueLinkManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager() 

I'm not getting the error: 

groovy.lang.MissingMethodException: No signature of method: is applicable for argument types: () values: [] Possible solutions: is(java.lang.Object), find(), sleep(long), find(groovy.lang.Closure), use([Ljava.lang.Object;), with(groovy.lang.Closure)
