Get count of linked issues (get by link name and priority)



I need a script that will count all related issues with link name "has a defect" and priority in Blocker || Critical? and insert the counter number into the custom field.


So I wrote some script, it considers all related issues as Critical and Blocking priority, but I can't add check for inward link name "is defect of", can you please help me.


Thank you.

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.issuetype.IssueType

def countS = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager().getLinkCollection(issue, issue.reporter)
.getAllIssues().count { in ['Critical', 'Blocker']

// custom field id
final long MY_CUSTOM_FIELD_ID = 14320;

// get issue to update
MutableIssue issue = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().getIssueByKeyIgnoreCase(issue.key);
// custom field reference
CustomField myCustomField = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObject(MY_CUSTOM_FIELD_ID);
// construct the new value
ModifiedValue newValue = new ModifiedValue(issue.getCustomFieldValue(myCustomField), countS);
// update the field to "new value"
myCustomField.updateValue(null, issue, newValue, new DefaultIssueChangeHolder());
