Build Calculated customfield values based on JQL query customfields

_Uday Kiran February 20, 2024

Hi Team,

I have 2 different custom fields (Field A, Field B) in Jira datacenter. I was looking to build a new calculated custom field (Field C) where the values will be the sum-up of Field B on a specific JQL search.


Example: I have a JQL query "Field A = xx" this will return few issues. Now based on the results, I would like to sumup the values of 'Field B' and populate them on 'Field C'

same way I would like to add multiple conditions

I have a JQL query "Field A = yy" this will return few issues. Now based on the results, I would like to sumup the values of 'Field B' and populate them on 'Field C'


Is this possible to achieve?

Hi @_Uday Kiran

For your requirement, a Scripted Field is a straight forward approach.

Below is a sample code for your reference:-

import com.adaptavist.hapi.jira.issues.Issues

def jql = "'Number 1' > 10" {
it.getCustomFieldValue('Number 2') as Long

Please note that the sample code above is not 100% exact to your environment. Hence, you will need to make the required modifications.

Below is a screenshot of the Scripted Field configuration:-


I hope this helps to solve your question. :-)

Thank you and Kind regards,

Also, Can we include an another logic here?

Suppose user selects  customfield A (Single-Select) value as 'A' on create or edit screen

Script should automatically make a JQL search as customfield_A = A and from the results calculate the values in customfield B (Number field) and display the sum in Customfield C (Scripted Field)


Same way should happen on everytime the user selects a value from customfield A.


Below script doesnt really work:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

// Replace 'Customfield_A', 'Customfield_B', and 'Customfield_C' with actual field names or IDs
def customfieldAName = 'Customfield_A'
def customfieldBName = 'Customfield_B'
def customfieldCName = 'Customfield_C'

def issue = issue

def customfieldAValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName(customfieldAName))

if (customfieldAValue) {
def jql = "'${customfieldAName}' = '${customfieldAValue}'"

def totalSum = 0
def searchService = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(SearchService)
def jqlQueryParser = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(JqlQueryParser)

def query = jqlQueryParser.parseQuery(jql)
def searchResults =, query, PagerFilter.getUnlimitedFilter())

searchResults.getResults().each { searchIssue ->
def customfieldBValue = searchIssue.getCustomFieldValue(ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName(customfieldBName)) as Long
totalSum += customfieldBValue ?: 0

issue.setCustomFieldValue(ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName(customfieldCName), totalSum)

Hello @_Uday Kiran 

Yes, its possible with automation. You can have a scheduled rule which does this for you on daily basis and populate field C which I am guessing already exists.. You havent given any specifics so hard to go any further. Start with the rule and share some screenshots with actual fields and we can help.
