Can I calculate the sum of fields captured across multiple tasks and display on a dashboard?

I want to calculate the sum of fields and percentage of fields in JIRA Cloud. Example:

Custom field 1 = Cost of work 

Custom field 2 = Benchmark

Calculation field 3 = field 1-field 2

Calculation field 4 = field3/field 1

Is there an easy way to add a plug-in or something similar? My development knowledge is limited. But if you give me code to inject, I would just need to know where. Thanks!

Hi Shari,

Since JQL does not provide a SUM function you may want to look at something such sumUp for JIRA.


Thank you Branden! 

Sorry, I hit reply to soon... when I review sumUp for JIRA, it appeared to me that it was just for calculating the sum of fields (plus or minus.) Do you know if it actually divide and multiplies?
