How do I order or sort issues by number of labels?

I would like to be able to sort issues by the number of labels attached to the issue.

I'm using a custom field called "customers" which is set up to use 'labels' as the input. This is intended to track multiple customers asking for the same feature request. To help prioritize the feature list, I need to order it by the count of labels. So I can see the feature with the most amount of customers (labels) attached to the issue. Thanks!

You could you this script for script field provided by ScriptRunner plugin:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

return issue.getCustomFieldValue(ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("customers")).size()

Thank you, Vasily, just found this after long searching for.

Just added a ...size().toDouble() due to a warning in issue test preview, and wow! - works perfect.
