Custom Calculated Field

We are on JIRA OnDemand (Cloud) or whatever it is called now) - version 7.1.0-OD-02-030.

I have Custom Fields for dates, that track specific events during the workflow (because I cannot get transition history to show on any report).  So for example, I use the workflow post functions to auto complete certain date fields as we transition through the workflow (only for some workflow steps).

I now want to create a field that shows me the difference between two of these date fields in days or hours.


Is this possible?  How do I do it?

Try this code 

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

import java.sql.Timestamp

return (int) ( getMillsForCstFd("custom field name 1", issue) - getMillsForCstFd("custom field name 1", issue))/(1000*60*60*24)

public long getMillsForCstFd(String _customFiledname, Issue _issue){
    CustomField customField = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName(_customFiledname);
    if(customField == null)
        return 0

    Timestamp cstFldDate = (Timestamp) _issue.getCustomFieldValue(customField);
    return (cstFldDate == null) ? 0 : cstFldDate.getTime();

To speed up development see this:

They can't. Script Runner is not (yet) available for Cloud.

I like the "yet" part ... I won't hold my breath though. Seems everything is designed for the non-cloud platforms these days.
