Count Working Days Only

Hi - I would like to filter issues which have been in a certain status for more than 3 days. However, I am only interested in working days. I understand that "-3d" would not work. Is there a way?

Hello Mariola,

this previous answer might help you achieving what you need. 

Also, we have a feature request for it:


We have a Days Elapsed Plugin for JIRA that might be able to help.

The recipe:

  1. Add a traffic light custom field
  2. Setup the calendars to indicate the working days
  3. Configure the thresholds such that 3 is red
  4. Fire a post function to trigger on the traffic light custom field upon status change
  5. You can query all the issues that exceeded 3 days by searching for red traffic light

Note: When the issue is resolved or closed, you need a post function to trigger off. Otherwise it will keep on counting.
