Groovy script - Issue search

I'm having a groovy sript to search the issues while creating an issue and update the number custom field value with the count of the issues from the search result. Using below script for this,

JiraAuthenticationContext authenticationContext = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext();
SearchService searchService = ComponentAccessor.getComponentOfType(SearchService .class);
JqlClauseBuilder builder = JqlQueryBuilder.newClauseBuilder();

CustomField cf1 = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Application Name");
Option cf1Value=null;
if( cf1 !=null )

CustomField cf2 = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Issue Category");
Option cf2Value=null
if( cf2 !=null )

CustomField cf3 = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("QA Environment");
Option cf3Value=null
if( cf3 !=null )

int totalIssues=0;

if( cf1Value != null && cf2Value != null && cf3Value != null ){

//JIRA query

Query query=builder.project().eq("DEMO Project").and().customField(cf1.getIdAsLong()).eq(cf1Value.getValue()).and().customField(cf2.getIdAsLong()).eq(cf2Value.getValue()).and().customField(cf3.getIdAsLong()).eq(cf3Value.getValue()).and().created().gtEqFunc("startOfWeek").buildQuery();

        SearchProvider searchProvider = ComponentAccessor.getComponentOfType(SearchProvider.class);
        SearchResults searchResults =, authenticationContext.getLoggedInUser(), PagerFilter.getUnlimitedFilter());
        List<Issue> searchIssues = searchResults.getIssues();
        totalIssues = searchIssues.size();

//Update custom field

IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager();
CustomFieldManager cfm=ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager();
def MeD =cfm.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Deployments this week");
issue.setCustomFieldValue(MeD, Integer.toString(totalIssues)as Double);

In this we have three different custom fields,

1. Application Name - select list field

2. Issue category - select list field

3. QA Environment - select list

I'm planning to modify the jql search to with a custom date field, means want to filter only the issues which are in current week of that custom date picker field value. Is that possible?? Now it is working with created date current week.

Please suggest.

Many thanks in advance. :)

This question is too vague, you should not post masses of code, just the interesting bit. Your other question is better and seems like it replaces this one.
