Sum scripted field


Anyone know if it's possible to sum a scripted field (provided by Script Runner, defined as number)?

I tried...


... and issueFunction in aggregateExpression("My Total","MyScriptedFieldName.sum()")

didn't seem to work.

Thanks in advance.

It does not at the moment, I have created, although there are other ones that are similar.

Please vote/watch it, so you get a notification when it's done.

Thanks @Jamie Echlin (Adaptavist). I would vote and watch, but I signed up and got the following message when I tried to view: Don't know if you can fix that. Thanks.

I am thinking of a workaround... is it possible to update a 'regular' custom field inside a scripted field? That way, I can use the  aggregateExpression with the 'regular' custom field.

If that's possible, is there any code snippet you can direct me to?

Thanks again.

I answered my own question, yes, it's possible to update another custom field from a scripted field (at least my code seems to work). Thanks again.
