How can I list the difference between the created date and resolution date as days, hours, minutes?

I am creating automation in Jira (cloud) on a company-managed software to find the time to resolution.  I need to list in a field on the issue how long it takes for the issue to go from created to resolved.  The result needs to be listed in Days, Hours, Minutes. 

Here is what I have tried (I can get a total number of hours or a total number of days but not a combination of the 3 that I need).


I have tried using the following custom field types: Text Field (single line), Date Time Picker, Number Field. 

I read something about prettyPrint will display the difference in words but I can't get it to work.

Hello @Heather Thomas 

Welcome to the community.

What have you tried for prettyPrint? From what I've read (I haven't actually tested this), the following should work


Thank you. That did work. I was making the mistake of using hours, days, etc with the prettyPrint.  Also, it worked for the custom field type: Text Field (single line)
