Aggregate times in custom fields


I'm using Script Runner to calculate the total estimate, remaining work and total time spent of all issues and subtasks related to an epic.

JQL is working fine 

issuefunction in subtasksOf("'Epic Link' = ABC-1") OR "Epic Link" = ABC-1 AND issueFunction in aggregateExpression("Total Estimate for all Issues", "originalEstimate.sum()", "Remaining Estimate for all Issues", "remainingEstimate.sum()", "Total Time spent", "timespent.sum()")

and results in an alert box when executing the search showing all my times.

Problem / Challenge:

I want to create 3 custom fields for all my epics dynamically calculating and showing the times for all issues and subtasks in it.

I'm looking forward to hints & tips! Thanks!

Great question, if you figure it out I'd be interested in knowing as well!

Hi @Anja,

This plugin may be useful for you.

Hi @Anastasia Kozlova,

thanks for the hint and I would love to use it, but I'm not smart enough to figure out the Java code for my logic above smile I'm no developer.

Best, Anja

If you are already using ScriptRunner it would as easy as creating a scripted field with the script inside being something based on JQL search:

this will get you the issues. 

Once you have the issues it is all about calculating the field you want to display. Something like this: 

def resultSum = 0

results.getIssues().each {epicIssue->



return resultSum


change getOriginalEstimate() with getEstimate() and getTimeSpent() as needed
