Calculate Sum of Custom Field by user

I have a custom field that has a numerical value, 0.1, 0.5 1.0 etc,

Looking for way to track calculate the sum of this field by user using a JQL query.

e.g. if i have 4 issues assigned in a project with the values 0.1, 0.25, 0.5 and 0.5 it would return my user with value 1.35 plus similar respnces for all other people with assigned ticket where the value of the custom field isnt empty

You can do it by using Groovy Runner. I have another post ( want something like you and I did it by using groovy runner.

p.s: This link is belong to my previous Atlassian ID and as I couldn't change my email address, I sing up for another one.

It's important to think of where you expect this field to occur for the user - gadget? Report? On an issue?

Later that Calculated Number field can be used anywhere in Jira/ Jira related tools.

This can be achieved easily by creating a Calculated Number Field and simple formula

Formula will be something like:

<!-- @@Formula:

Object cf1 = issue.get("customfield_10600");

Object cf2 = issue.get("customfield_10601");

Object cf8 = issue.get("customfield_10015");

int number = cf1 + cf2 + cf8;

return number;


The question was about JQL, and different issues. The code you've given adds up fields on the same issue.

I really need in a query essentaily the same as an Excel Subtotal with a sum on the custom field

Essentilly producing somthing smilar to the below (Dont care about Grand Totals)

But where do you want the field to appear in Jira?

As a new field in the JQL results

Typically this is what reports and gadgets are for as Nic said.

However this was the use case for the aggregateExpression JQL function in Script Runner. If there are multiple different users in your filter you should get a data table with a value for the sum of the values by user. If you get the function params right...

As far as i can tell this just produces an alert that is suited to grand totals. I really need this break down per user and subtotals in a jql from that i can then refine further for diffrent reports
