Ideally I'd like to sort my backlog by the number of labels in a Custom Field attached to a User Story. From the research/attempts I've done so far it doesn't look like this is possible.
What was provided to me by a colleague was the following JQL:
project = MT AND issuetype in (Bug, Story) AND "myCustomField" is not EMPTY
It would work for what I'm trying to acheive if I could swap out the above 'is not EMPTY' and replace it with 'is > 3' (as in contains more than 3 labels).
If anyone could provide the correct syntax for what I'm describing it would be greatly appreciated!
There is no syntax for it, JQL for the custom field is built to look for values, not count up values.
I'd use one of the scripting add-ons to create a simple scripted field that displays "number of labels" as a numeric, so you can search and sort on that. Don't even need to put it on the issue screens, as it's for searching only.
