How to query duration searcher field?

Charlie Misonne Community Leader Mar 20, 2020

I'v got a scripted field using ScriptRunner. The script outputs a Long value with ScripRunner useing the Duration template.

The custom field also uses the Duration searcher.

The values in the issues are fine. But querying them with JQL does not work as excpected.


The field shows this value on an issue: 1 day, 11 hours, 5 minutes

When I search for: myField < 2d the issue is not in the results.

Is it possible to use a duration field in JQL? Or should I use a date field instead?

@Charlie Misonne I'm currently having the same issues. Did you figure it out :)?

No I didn't. I chose to use a date field instead.
I don't think we can query duration field but I'm not 100% sure. If you really need it try asking via a vendor support ticket.

Thank you for the answer :)

It kind of sucks that the official documentation shows examples that do not work.

I'm curious too. I'm trying to use the scripted field for "Total time this issue has been In Progress". Are you able to export the data to a CSV containing the custom "Duration" field? 


Also, I see this note on the scriptrunner docs page. "Use the Duration Searcher. For the template choose Duration." Any idea what this means? 

Did you also assign a search term to the field? I found this in their docs.  

(Optional) Enter a Search Term if you want to use Scripted Fields when searching for issues with JQL. There are several conditions that must be met for Search Terms, including: they must be unique, case sensitive, and contain no whitespace. Existing search terms/Jira custom field names cannot be used.
