Hey Tukaram,

maybe the following helps you. But I'm not sure why you need this information for a set of issues. Maybe you want to tell us more about your use case?

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;
import com.atlassian.jira.bc.JiraServiceContextImpl;
import com.atlassian.jira.bc.filter.SearchRequestService;
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser;
import com.atlassian.jira.web.bean.PagerFilter;
import com.atlassian.query.Query;
SearchResults getIssuesByJQL(String jql) throws Exception
        SearchService serchService = ComponentAccessor.getComponentOfType(SearchService.class);
      SearchService.ParseResult parseResult =
        if (!parseResult.isValid())
            throw new Exception("jql is not valid. jql was "+jql);
        Query query = parseResult.getQuery();
          SearchResults sr =,
 query, PagerFilter.getUnlimitedFilter());
            return sr;
return getIssuesByJQL("status = 'in progress'").getTotal()





Thanks Julian,
