Search column for epic child issue count

Hi all,

I am trying to display the number of issues in an epic on the search screen. I need all epics rather than just specific ones, so ideally i just need a column that displays the child issues count when i have filterd to just display epics. Is that possible?

Hi @Mark Davis , it is not possible by default. You can use Scripted fields function of ScriptRunner App (

So the result would be new field on epics with value showing number of child issues of the epic.

Thanks Martin. Will look into ScriptRunner.

Hi @Mark Davis , sorry, I obviously didn't provide correct answer, because as @Kate Kabir mentioned, it does not allow you to add field to columns of JQL filter :(

Like Kate Kabir likes this

Hi @Mark Davis 

The Script Fields can be searched for in JQL but the value cannot be shown in the column in the search results as in our documentation here.

Kind Regards
