How can i calculate the number of dates from a date picker custom field to resolution date using misc custom fields

Trying to calculate number of dates from custom field 'date received' till the resolution date.


I tried to do it myself with this code below but it didnt work sad any help would be greatly appreciated.


<!-- @@Formula: (issue.resolutionDate != null) != null ? issue.resolutionDate.getDate() : null) - (issue.get("customfield_10002") != null ? issue.get("customfield_10002") : null) -->

The Resolution Date is retrieved using:

issue.get("resolutiondate")

See https://innovalog.atlassian.net/wiki/x/BYAbAg

So your formula would look like (assuming you want a number of days):

&lt;!-- @@Formula: 
if (issue.get("resolutiondate") == null || issue.get("customfield_10002")==null)
  return null;
return (issue.get("resolutiondate").getTime() - issue.get("customfield_10002").getTime()) / (1000*60*60*24);
 --&gt;

excellent! i am still trying to learn this language, it is a lot different to BASIC which is what i've come from.

I do have one question, is there anyway to exclude weekends? if it is too complicated then do not worry as we can simply change the date received to manipulate the total days.

Thank you for your help greatly appreciated!!
