So my problem is this:
I want to know how many "eng feedback" subtasks QA has made per parent ticket when the parent is in X status.
Is this possible with using JQL and not a tool like script runner?
Any help would be appreciated
With JQL, you need to either have a field value to refer to, or have a JQL function which references the required need.
You can do this with a field value in Jira Cloud without an app, although it will required a custom field and an automation rule.
You'll need to be a Jira Admin for this.
I'd either not have this field on a screen, or only add it to a View screen (via Screen Scheme operations). You don't want this to be manually editable from an issue's view.
^ This will then count the number of sub-tasks below an issue when transitioned to the appropriate status. You can then reference it in JQL like any other number field.
Remember with global automation rules there is an execution limit per month, which is different depending on which plan you're on. Project executions however are almost unlimited.
Hi @Phillip Talbot ,
You can use the Enhancer Plugin for Jira for this.
It has a custom field called Status Counter that does the exactly what you're asking for: Counts the number of times the issue is in that particular status.
This custom field can be used to sort or search in issue navigator.
Enhancer Plugin for Jira has many more custom field types that can fit your different requirements.
Please let me know if you have further questions.
