Script Runner - Get All Issues Logged User with Status "in Progress" ?

How do I get all the issues "in progress" of the logged in user?

status = "In Progress" and assignee = currentUser()

You have to do a search in your script with the JQL stated by Chris. You could use a method like this.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUsers
import com.atlassian.jira.web.bean.PagerFilter

static List<Issue> getFilterResult(String jqlSearch, ApplicationUser user) {
    SearchService searchService = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(SearchService.class)
    IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
    List<Issue> issues = null

    SearchService.ParseResult parseResult =  searchService.parseQuery(ApplicationUsers.toDirectoryUser(user), jqlSearch)
    if (parseResult.isValid()) {
        def searchResult =, parseResult.getQuery(), PagerFilter.getUnlimitedFilter())
        // Transform issues from DocumentIssueImpl to the "pure" form IssueImpl (some methods don't work with DocumentIssueImps)
        // This is not needed in every place and the collect{} part maybe skipped for better performance 
        issues = searchResult.issues.collect {issueManager.getIssueObject(}
    return issues

This method is completely without logging and only with basic error handling, so feel free to expand. :-)

Hi Henning.

Could you show me how to pick up the logged in user and also how to do JQL?

thank you

Yes, you can get the current user like this

ApplicationUser user = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.getUser()

And the jqlSearch String is the same you would enter as an advanced search in JIRA.

String jqlSearch = 'status = "In Progress" and assignee = currentUser()'

Wow !

Nice Job Henning, Tank s !
