List all the issues with x number of linked issues (blockers) Edited


I want to measure how many problems we have when we complete user stories or fix issues.

We have an issue of type Story that may have 0, 1 or more linked issues of type Blocker. The link may be "Found" or "Is Blocked By".

I would like to list the Stories with 0 blockers, 1 blocker, 2 blockers, etc.

Can this be done, and how to do it?

I can't seem to find a way to do this natively in Jira.   Although Scriptrunner in Jira could allow you to search for which issues have a specific issue link of a specific link type.  Scriptrunner JQL functions explains this more.   But even that method only tells you if the issue has a linktype, it does not seems to be able to tell you the number of links of that type the issue has.

There is a post from a few years ago that explains how you could create a custom field and then populate this field with a scriptrunner script that counts the number of links the issue has.  I would recommend checking out How to count the number of issue links of an issue
