Dependent Counter Scripted Field not displayed as custom field in issue

I was tesing out some examples for Dependent Counter fields in JIRA from I copy pasted some scripts into the scripted field column and saved it.

But the dependent counter custom field doesnt appear on my issue page.

Am I missing out on some step?

Have you associated it with the issue type? Is it on the view issue screen? Check with the "where's my field" thing.

Also check the logs to make sure it's not failing.

Hi Jamie,

Yea you are right, I hadnt linked it with the screen..


I was trying to get this script to run but its not displaying the right value. I want to display the number of cloned links in a issue. BUt when I run this script I always get 1.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor



ComponentAccessor componentAccessor= ComponentAccessor.newInstance()

Collection<IssueLinkType> issueLinkTypes=componentAccessor.getComponentOfType(IssueLinkTypeManager.class).getIssueLinkTypes();

count = 0;

for (IssueLinkType linktype : issueLinkTypes) {

    String name=linktype.getName();





return count;

hello Shweta,

you are getting count as 1 because you are checking for number of link types with name Cloners in your jira. Probably it always return 1

As prasad suggested, you need to get links from the issue as

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;

IssueLinkManager issueLinkManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager();

List<IssueLink> issueInwardLinksList = issueLinkManager.getInwardLinks(issue.getId());

int inCount=0;

for(IssueLink issueLink : issueInwardLinksList)
	if(issueLink != null && issueLink.getIssueLinkType().getName().equals("Cloners"))

List<IssueLink> issueOutwardLinksList = issueLinkManager.getOutwardLinks(issue.getId());

int outCount=0;

for(IssueLink issueLink : issueOutwardLinksList)
	if(issueLink != null && issueLink.getIssueLinkType().getName().equals("Cloners"))
int totalCount=inCount+outCount;
return totalCount;
