Scripted field for transition number - how to?

Hi All,

hence I am not acquinted in Groovy could you please help me? We would like to have a custom field which displays the number of reopening an issue. So by default the value will be 0 for each issue and each time the issue has been reopened from Resolved to Reopen than the value will increment by 1.

We don't have MISC workflow plugin nor JJUPIN. We only have Behaviour and Script Runner. Could you please help us?

The workflow post function method is not working for us because we need that values retrospectively.

Thanks in advance,

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
def componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance()
def changeHistoryManager = componentManager.getChangeHistoryManager()
Double counter=0
changeHistoryManager.getChangeItemsForField(issue, "status").each{
 if (it.toString=="Reopened")

return counter

You need to create new custom field of type Scripted Field and add upper code to it (from jira administration, Add-ons, Scriptrunner Script fields).

Field has parameters:

- Template: Number field
- Configured searcher: Number Searcher

Please check your status name after reopening issue and change it in script to proper value.
