aggregate expression with a selection list custom field

Hi...I have a selection list custom field where the values represent numbers (1,2,3,4,5) there a way I can use a JQL like this :....issueFunction in aggregateExpression("Total","customfield.sum()")....


When I try to run it I get an error message 

Field  found but has no searcher. Edit it, set the searcher, and re-index

is there a way to "convert" the selection field to number so the aggregateExpression can do the sum?


Thank you

You can add your own classes for JQL functions – Called Script JQL Functions.

If you are not comfortable with this, you may need to reach out to Adaptavist for consulting. This isn't something most people will do for free.
