JIRA: Need count of stories under an epic

We need to make a dashboard displaying below two values



Epic Name            No of stories created under Epic   


Please help us to count the stories. We are not able to find any plugin so far so may be script needs to be written. Please help!

If you have scriptrunner, just create a Scripted Field.

The script should look like

IssueLinkManager issueLinkManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager()

Integer stories = 0
issueLinkManager.getOutwardLinks(issue.getId()).each {epicLink ->
if (epicLink.getIssueLinkType().getName() == "Epic-Story Link") {
Issue epicLinkedIssue = epicLink.getDestinationObject()
String liIssueType = epicLinkedIssue.getIssueType().getName()
if (liIssueType == "Story") {
return stories.toDouble()
Issue epicLinkedIssue = epicLink.getDestinationObject()

epicLinkedIssue is not acceptable in code by Script runner Script field?


Any suggestion?

What do you mean with " not acceptable..." ???

While creating a Script field using Scriptrunner... its giving red indicator.

Just add the line

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue

at the beginning of your script ? (that's just very basic groovy knowledge …)

You would need an add-on for it.

You could also use the Power Custom Fields Premium add-on:

You could create a SIL custom field with a script like this:

return size(allLinkedIssues(key, "Epic-Story Link"));


You can also try this app -

You would need to enter JQL such as - "Epic Link" = "name of your epic" and type = story

Thanks, Raimundas... and appreciate your efforts on the creation of such a good plugin.

But 'Status & Progress Report Gadget for Jira' is only available for Cloud version not for Self-hosted server version.
