How do I total 5 fields together?

I have 5 value fields Amount1, Amount2, Amount3, Amount4 and Amount5.  I just want to total them to a field named TotalAmount.  I tried to use a ConfiForms rule but my totals are always wrong i.e. value of 100 in only field Amount1 give me a total of 500 in field TotalAmount:

TotalAmount=(ZEROIFEMPTY("[entry.R1Amount]") + ZEROIFEMPTY("[entry.R2Amount]") + ZEROIFEMPTY("[entry.R3Amount]") + ZEROIFEMPTY("[entry.R4Amount]") + ZEROIFEMPTY("[entry.R5Amount]")). 

Then I tried to find a formula that would just total the fields but can see to find a Total or Sum of 5 fields together example with no luck so far. 


Any help would be really appreciated.

The simple answer was I had to use either a ConfiForms Field set as Formula (see below) or use a ConfiForms Rule Field set as formula, I choose the latter to provide the user total while in the form.

TotalAmount=(ZEROIFEMPTY("[entry.R1Amount]") + ZEROIFEMPTY("[entry.R2Amount]") + ZEROIFEMPTY("[entry.R3Amount]") + ZEROIFEMPTY("[entry.R4Amount]") + ZEROIFEMPTY("[entry.R5Amount]"))

If somebody uses the Table Filter and Charts for Confluence app, don't forget that its Table Filter macro can output the total column as well:

I can confirm that if you are using Jira Cloud then you could achieve this requirement with ScriptRunner for Jira Cloud by using a Scripted Field as described here or a Script Listiner as described here to sum the values of fields and store them on an issue.

If you are using Confluence Cloud then then you could achieve this requirement with ScriptRunner for Confluence Cloud by using a Script Listiner as described here and writing some custom groovy code to get the values you need and to sum these up and display them on your Confluence page.

I hope this information helps.



Groovy will be your answer IMHO.

To do so , I would use a Scripted Field with Scriptrunner. (if you have)

If you would like a hand I am happy to help.
