How to sum data from customfield using jql and scriprunner Edited

Oleksiy Ohmush Apr 21, 2019

I try to use scriprunner jql search to find all issues i need and take a math sum off customfields in this issues.

How to use values from current issue in scriptrunner jql search? And how to sum customfields?

I find next:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.web.bean.PagerFilter

def jqlSearch = "project = JIRA and created => current.issue.customfield_11200 and created <= current.issue.customfield 11300 and customfield_22100 = current.issue.customfield _22100

def user = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.loggedInUser
def searchService = ComponentAccessor.getComponentOfType(SearchService)
SearchService.ParseResult parseResult = searchService.parseQuery(user, jqlSearch)

if (parseResult.isValid()) {
try {

sum+= sum of the value "customfield_14200"

} catch (SearchException e) {
} else {
log.warn("Invalid query")
return null

Where is this code being used? DO you already have  "issue" in the binding (like you would for workflow)?

Let's assume you have a valid issue object.

To get the values of custom fields, you must first obtain the custom field object, Then, you can get the value from the issue.

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager
def cf11200= customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(11200)
def cf11300= customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(11300)
def cf22100= customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(22100)
//or def yourCfObject = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("the name of your cf")
def cf11200Val = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf11200) 
def cf11300Val = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf11300) 
def cf22100Val = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf22100) 

def jqlSearch = "project = JIRA and created => $cf11200Val and created <= $cf11300Val and customfield_22100 = $cf22100"


Note that in the case of select fields, the "myvalue" will be an option object with id and value attributes.

I will use scriptedfield in issue, it will take values from current issue to use it in jql, calculate sum of values all issues by jql and displays sum value

Oleksiy Ohmush Apr 23, 2019
def s = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(11037) 
def en = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(11603) 
def l = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(11405) 

def jqlSearch = "project = JIRA and cf[11405] ~ $l and created >= $s AND created <= $en AND status = Closed AND resolution = Done"




invalid jql search. Maybe i did something wrong with syntax?

Peter-Dave Sheehan Apr 23, 2019

First, in want you most recently pasted, you are missing the code to actually get the value.

This line:

def s = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(11037) 

Only returns the customfield object. You have to get the value separately from the issue

def s_value = issue.getCustomFieldValue(s)


Then, if you will build  JQL string, you need to make sure you transform the value into a format accepted by the JQL. In this case, looks like you are using dates.

def s = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(11037)
def en = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(11603)
def l = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(11405)
def v_s = issue.getCustomFieldValue(s)?.format("YYYY-MM-dd")
def v_en = issue.getCustomFieldValue(en)?.format("YYYY-MM-dd")
def v_l = issue.getCustomFieldValue(l)

if(v_s && v_en && v_l){
def jqlSearch
= "project = JIRA and cf[11405] ~ "$v_l" and created >= $v_s AND created <= $v_en AND status = Closed AND resolution = Done"
} else {
log.warn "One of custom fields (11037, 11603, 11405) is empty, JQL would be invalid"

I tend to use the Jira API for this stuff, the calls you're looking for can be seen in action in this "scripted field" code:  (note, remember to switch to the "server" tab)

I receive 404 error on this page.

Yes, its great, last thing i try to find is how to use values from current issue customfields in jql 

Oleksiy Ohmush Apr 22, 2019

WARN [common.UserScriptEndpoint]: Script console script failed: groovy.lang.MissingPropertyException: No such property: issue for class: Script15 at

Sorry, i understand it will work in field but in ScriptConsole its error

Peter-Dave Sheehan Apr 23, 2019

If you want to try in the script console, you can get your issue object like this:

def issue = ComponentAccessor.issueManager.getIssueObject("ABC-123")
