Automation, the problem of summing up the amounts


Hi I'm writing an automation program and I want to calculate the sum of a numeric field in a question. For example, I have a question field as the total value of the amount, each time a new question amount number field is created, this new amount value can be added to the total amount value, and the total amount number field is updated. How should I do it?

Hi @jack and welcome to the community,

You have to have two separate numeric custom fields for that matter. One will be the Total and one will be that of the individual question. Each new number on the individual question will be a part of the Total.

To get this sum you can use a Jira Automation rule and smart values. Your rule should look something like the following:

Of course feel free to change the trigger and the lookupissue JQL to match your needs. The last component is the log of the sum.

Hi Alex thanks for your reply.

My jira version is data center version There is no Then:{{lookupIssues}}  Can I still use those conditions?

Ohh crap. I missed that little piece of information you provided..

Unfortunately lookupissues is not available on server/DC (

Do you have any 3rd party app like scriptrunner? The latter has a functionality called scripted fields.

Thanks Alex.

There is a scriptrunner plug-in, but I don't know how to write the code content. Is there a detailed tutorial?

Yes, in the link above :)
