Translate JQL syntax into Structure Formula

Hi all,

let's assume I've got 3 different Jira child_projects and some issues of them have Labels. If present, such Labels match exaclty the IssueKey of my parent_project.

For instance: child_project_1-183, child_project_1-141 and child_project_3-21 issues have got this value "parent_project-123" in their Label fields.

In my Jira Structure, I'd like to display:

  1. in Colum A, parent_project IssuesKeys (done, trivial)
  2. in Column B, total number of child_projects issues with a given Label (=IssueKey).
  3. In Column C, sum of Story Pointsof child_projects issues with a given Label (=IssueKey) value

I try to show how Structure should looks like (not possible to attach an picture here):

Column A.                     Column B              Column C

parent_project_123               3                         34

parent_project_124               5                         21

parent_project_125               0                         0

parent_project_126               1                          9


The above figures on first row, in Column B and C, are easily fetched by this JQL:

issueFunction in issueFieldMatch("project in (child_project_1, child_project_2, child_project_3) and issuetype in (enabler, story, 'user story')", 'labels','parent_project_123') AND issueFunction in aggregateExpression("Story Points Sum:","StoryPoints.sum()")

 But, how can I "translate" this query into Structure formula(s)?

Thanks for your time.

Hi Pietro,


Apologies for answering so late.


if I understand your use case correctly then these are the formulas you would use to accomplish this


Column B:  

SUM#children{MATCH(label, "/TEST-1/")}

Column C:

SUM#children{if(MATCH(labels, "/TEST-1/"); story_points; 0)}

in both examples I used TEST-1 as the given key.


I hope that helps.

(Thank you for using Structure).
