scripted field total time a issue has been in open state

I m trying to show th total time a issue has been in open state. For that I m using a scripted field

and a modified script :

import com.atlassian.core.util.DateUtils
import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.history.ChangeItemBean
def componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance()
def changeHistoryManager = componentManager.getChangeHistoryManager()
def inProgressName = "Open"
def rt = [0]
changeHistoryManager.getChangeItemsForField (issue, "status").reverse().each {ChangeItemBean item ->
    def timeDiff = System.currentTimeMillis() - item.created.getTime()
    if (item.fromString == inProgressName) {
        rt << -timeDiff
    if (item.toString == inProgressName){
        rt << timeDiff
// NOTE: doesn't show anything if less than 60 seconds
DateUtils.getDurationString(Math.round(rt.sum() / 1000))

Problem is the field allways show 0m. Can someone help?

That's just example code, not really production quality. It doesn't work if the status you are interested in is the first one.

I just made an edit -

I think the problem is that you should use item.created.getTime()

com.atlassian.jira.issue.history.ChangeItemBean.getCreated() returns java.sql.Timestamp so you should call getTime() to get milliseconds.

Hi Boris,

no that doesn t help scripted field still shows 0m.

Isn't "<<" a bit-operator? I don't think that works with collections/arrays. Try this instead:


<< is overridden for collections in groovy.

Is there a way to get total time since creation but not closed?  I really wouldn't want to have to add up all the time between transitions as I would not know each transition it goes through.
