I'm strugling in summing up the timespent over the defined time period.
worklogAuthor = User AND issueFunction in aggregateExpression("Total tracked", "timespent.sum()") AND worklogDate >= startOfMonth()
returns timespent on the issues over the whole existence of the issue. I cannot find the way how to get the sum only over defined time period. Can anybody help, with formulating such query?
Thanks a lot!
JQL is limited in that it is only designed to return a list of Jira issues. I understand that you are looking for a specific segment of data in those issues, but JQL is not granular enough to provide only this. It is designed to return the issues in Jira that match your query and with it all the values in that issue. In this case the Scriptrunner provided JQL function, aggregateExpression is still not going to change the values pulled in by the rest of the JQL query according to the documentation of this function.
Personally I think you would have better chance of success trying to get this data from the SQL database directly instead of JQL. But this would probably require that you then manipulate the SQL results in something like Excel to sum only these values within a certain date range.
I was able to whip up a SQL query that can gather these specific worklogs based on the date they were created rather than all the worklogs for an issue that JQL is gathering:
SELECT wl.*, P.PKey || '-' || ji.IssueNum as IssueKey
FROM worklog wl
join jiraissue ji on ji.id = wl.issueid
join Project P on ji.Project = P.Id
where wl.created > '2017-10-01';
This returns the entire worklog table, but it also adds in the jira issue key, and then filters only entries created after the date I of Oct 1st. The timeworked field in this table is the time worked on the issue in seconds.
I understand if this isn't exactly what you are looking for, but I can't see a way to do this within JQL currently.
I'm agree with @Andrew Heinzer, but I wrote another solution here without SQL :
I guess these two topics are close
