Calculate sum of Story Points in all linked issues, except the issueLinkType "is blocked by"

Hello Community,

I´ve found an script to calculate the sum of Story Points in all linked Issues with a scripted field via ScriptRunner and adjusted it to my use case like this: 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue

// The issue type for which we want the scripted field to be displayed
final issueTypeName = 'Story'

// The values of that custom field - of type number - we want to sum up
final numberOfUsersFieldName = 'Story Points'

if ( != issueTypeName) {
    return null

def linkedIssues = ComponentAccessor.issueLinkManager.getOutwardLinks( { }
if (!linkedIssues) {
    return null

def numberOfUsersField = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(linkedIssues.first().destinationObject).findByName(numberOfUsersFieldName)
if (!numberOfUsersField) {
    log.debug "Custom field is not configured for that context"
    return null

linkedIssues*.destinationObject.sum { Issue it -> it.getCustomFieldValue(numberOfUsersField) ?: 0 }

Now the requirement has changed, and I would like to have the sum of Story Points in all linked issues except the issueLinkType "is blocked by". In case that I´m not a developer and new to jira, I have no clue how to modify this script, to run it for my use case. I hope that someone has an idea. Thank you in advance for your support.

Hi @Shahin Dogan

For your requirement, you should try something like this:-

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def issueLinkManager = ComponentAccessor.issueLinkManager
def loggedInUser = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.loggedInUser
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager

def storyPoints = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectsByName('Story Points').first()
issue.getCustomFieldValue(storyPoints) as Double

def linkCollection = issueLinkManager.getLinkCollection(issue, loggedInUser) // to get all the linked issues for the current issue
def excludedIssues = linkCollection.getInwardIssues('Blocks')
def totalStoryPoints = linkCollection.allIssues - excludedIssues // to filter out issues that are blocked

totalStoryPoints.collect {
it.getCustomFieldValue(storyPoints) as Double

Please note that the sample working code above is not 100% exact to your environment. Hence, you will need to make the required modifications.

Below is a screenshot of the Scripted Field's configuration:-


I also include a couple of test screenshots for your reference:-

The first issue is linked to 3 other issues. Two are using the relates to link, and one is using the is blocked by link. If you compare the first screenshot below with the other three screenshots, you will notice that in the issue MOCK-1, only the story points from MOCK-2 and MOCK-3 are calculated. However, the story points from MOCK-4 are excluded because it is a blocker.





I hope this helps to solve your question. :-)

Thank you and Kind regards,
