Structure Question - Finding story points for children of a certain issueType and certain status

Hi!  Quick question!  What I am trying to do is make a formula where I count all the children that are missing story points writing that total count in a sentence.  I then display the total count at the Epic level.

"xx out of zz" where xx is the children that are missing story points and zz is the total children.  Currently, what I have below in the code block is working but it counts children of ALL issuetypes and ALL statuses.

My question is this: how can I filter out for status = open and issueType = story? 

If there is a better way of writing this out, please let me know!  This is my first time using structures


if issuetype = "Epic":
if (COUNT#children{"Story Points"} - COUNT#children{columnSP} == 0):
"All stories are pointed"
else :
concat(COUNT#children{"Story Points"} - COUNT#children{columnSP}; " out of "; COUNT#children{"Story Points"})

columnSP = column that displays the number of stories that have story points

Hello @matticsphi 

You can try a formula like this:

if issuetype = "epic":

if sum#children{if issuetype = "story" and status = "open" and storypoints: "1"} = sum#children{if issuetype = "story" and status = "open": "1"} : "All stories are pointed" else
concat(sum#children{if issuetype = "story" and status = "open": "1"} - sum#children{if issuetype = "story" and status = "open" and storypoints: "1"}, " out of ", sum#children{if issuetype = "story" and status = "open": "1"})

It will do the following for every Epic:

- count how many Stories in the 'Open' Status each Epic has;
- count how many of such Stories have Story Points;
- return either 'All stories are pointed' if both parameters match or 'X out of Y' when only X Stories have Story Points out of Y Stories overall.

I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reach out to us directly at our support portal.

Thank you!  Sorry, I was on PTO.  It looks complex but it works, thank you so much!


Because of the complexity, I made some support columns to help me calculate the same: filterForStatus and filterByIssueKey.  I would use these columns in the calculation that I posted in the OP!



if JQL {issueType = Epic} :
if JQL {status in ("Cancelled", Closed)}: 1 }



if JQL {issueType = Epic} :
if JQL {issueType in ("Task", "Sub-task")}: 1 }
