JQL query sum linked issues Edited

Dear all,

Do you know is it possible to sum number of linked issues of some JIRA issue/issues?

I was looking for solution, but it was unsuccessfully. 

Please help! :)

Thank you!

Hi Katrina,

JQL doesn't have a SUM function, however, you may want start by looking into an add on such as sumUp for JIRA.



Dear Branden,

Thank you, I will try with that add on.

You can definitely do this using a calculated field implemented with Better Excel Plugin or with ScriptRunner.

Dear Aron, 

Can you help me with using ScriptRunner? I found a lot of documentation on internet, but I am the beginner with using this Gadget. It would be great if you could to recommend me some documentation from your side. 


Thank you a lot.


Why don't you contact Adaptavist, the vendor who develops Script Runner?

Yes, I deffinately should do this.

Thank you!!!
