Is it possible to have a custom field in JIRA that returns "Number of components" assigned to an issue?

I am wondering if it is possible to have a custom field that can return number of components assigned to an issue. 

I can see when I create a custom field I can choose "Number of attachments" and "Number of comments".

Hi Gigja

I believe this can be achieved with a scripted field with plugin

I never tried to do it so i'm not sure if it will work but there is a specialist from the creators of the plugin active on Atlassian answers.


@Nic Brough [Adaptavist] Maybe you can confirm this works? 





That's exactly how I would do it.

A scripted field that just says

return issue.getComponentObjects().size()

should actually do the whole job!
