Retrieve an issue's worklogs by date using groovy

Alex Christensen Community Champion Nov 11, 2015

I am trying to pull only certain worklogs for a certain issue based on the date the worklog was created. I am using the PDF View Plugin to create a report and I need to get an issue's worklogs.

Below is a snippet of code I'm using to create a series of plot points to be used in a line graph.

actualSeries = new TimeSeries("actual")
def totalRemainingEstimate = totalOriginalEstimate
actualSeries.add(preDate, totalRemainingEstimate)
def worklogManager = ComponentAccessor.getWorklogManager()
for (date in {
	def timeSpent = 0
	def currDate = new Day(date)
	issues.each {
		List worklogs = worklogManager.getByIssue(it)
		for (def worklog : worklogs) {
			def created = new Day(worklog.getCreated())
				if (created == currDate) {
					timeSpent += (worklog.getTimeSpent()/3600)
totalRemainingEstimate -= timeSpent
actualSeries.add(currDate, totalRemainingEstimate)

This code works correctly and it does what I need it to, but is there a way to only pull the worklogs for an issue based on a particular date instead of pull ALL worklogs? It's unnecessary to pull all of the worklogs and I think it's extra work for the system to pull all worklogs instead of just the ones that I need.

There is nothing in the API to support that AFAIK. You could do a lucene query on the worklog index (6.4+) but I don't think it's worth the trouble, and may not use any less resources.

You could use com.atlassian.jira.issue.worklog.WorklogManager#getByIssue(com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue, int), so get a paged list. If you use a page size of say 2 or 3, you're unlikely to ever need the second page if just looking for the current day.

Again, I'm not sure that's worth the trouble either.

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...
