This isn't going to work

Scripted fields are not enterable, they are calculated

Reporting and searching is not going to be reliable, unless you re-index, or at least view, every issue with your scripted field on it every day just after midnight.

Thanks for the reply,

Sorry for i wrote the question wrong way actually Due Date field is system field that is manually entered by user while creation of issue. Here i need new script custom field (Due Date Indicator) that calculates how many days left from  Due Date system field. Please help me on this.




I don't think you wrote it incorrectly at all.

Your "number of days left" field is not going to work because of what I said in my original answer.
