I want a field to be unique while reporting so can you help on how to set via filter or JQL?

I have Jira issue type with a field called CODE.

Example :

FieldJira 1Jira 2Jira 3
CODESR01SR01SR01

I'm using Issue statistics gadget and getting the count as 3 but I want the count as 1. Is there any way to set the CODE value as unique?

You would need to write a validator that can stop people putting non-unique data into the field.

But I would not do that, I would recommend looking at why you think you want unique data in the field.  It's usually pointless because the point of a field is to report on related things, and in the few cases where you do need it, it's usually better done in other ways (not using unique values in fields or automating something)
