Scripted field problem

Hi All,

I created a scripted field which calculates the sum of the time spent in Open and In Progress statuses. But in the case when the current status is still In Progress, the field doesn't calculate that time spent: e.g.:

Can you please help what is wrong?

import com.atlassian.core.util.DateUtils
import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.history.ChangeItemBean
def componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance()
def changeHistoryManager = componentManager.getChangeHistoryManager()
def status1Name = "Open"
def status2Name = "In progress"
def time = System.currentTimeMillis()
def rt = [0]
// If one of the status is the very first status in a workflow you have to
// add the creation time to the array because the creation time is not a
// transition that will be counted in the following loop.
// Uncomment the following line if that is so:
rt << time - issue.genericValue.created.getTime()
// Loop through all transitions and catch the times for the specified transition
def ch = changeHistoryManager.getChangeItemsForField (issue, "status")
for (i=0; i<ch.size(); i++) {
   def timeDiff = time - ch[i].created.getTime()
   if (ch[i].fromString == status1Name) { rt << -timeDiff }
   if (ch[i].fromString == status2Name) { rt << -timeDiff }

   if (i<ch.size()-1) {
      if (ch[i].toString == status1Name && ch[i+1].fromString == status1Name) { rt << timeDiff }
      if (ch[i].toString == status2Name && ch[i+1].fromString == status2Name) { rt << timeDiff }
// Return the sum of all array values, formatted as a duration string
Math.round(rt.sum() / 60000).toString()

Someone else posted an update to this script which they said fixes an issue that sounds similar to yours... didn't test it though.

Hi Jamie,

where is that update? In this forum?

I searched the whole forum before I posted..

Yep, I thought so. Maybe on the wiki for the plugin then, not sure...
