Scripted Fields Won't Update on Refresh (Script Runner/Reindexing)

We have a scripted field that basically checks if another field was updated since the beginning of the day. Here's a screenshot of one of our dashboards:

This was taken this morning so obviously these issues weren't updated at 9PM today-- the values are residual from yesterday. If I go to the issue and update it, or run a reindex, the "Yes" values here will change back to "No", which is what they should be.

But shouldn't the values update/recalculate every time the issue is loaded? That is what we would like to have.

Thanks,

Kevin

No. 

It would impose load on the server that could become a problem, but it's not supportable anyway.  JIRA doesn't do "action on view".

It's not quite as simple as this, or even done this way, but you can think of scripted fields as being calculated and stored by the indexing.  They have the calculated value at the time the issue was last updated (or indexed by a script or project/system reindex)

This makes them unsuitable for this sort of display.  This is the sort of activity that should be shifted into javascript so the client calculates the "current" value from a fixed value in the back-end.
