Script runner - Count of link types

Hi,

I am trying to create a custom field to show the count of a specific type of linked items.

Outward Description - PO & Inward Description - Purchases


I am returning 0 however there are 3 link of that type.

 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def issueLinkManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager() 
def issueLinks = issueLinkManager.getInwardLinks(issue.getId())

def subElements = issueLinks.findAll {    issueLinks*.issueLinkType.name.contains('Purchases') }

return subElements.size() as Double

Any suggestions?

Use the actual link name, not the outward or inward description. You won't get both types because you are only looking at inward links. Then do again for outward links with the outward link name.

Example

Link name: Cloners (use this)
Outward: is cloned to
Inward: is cloned from 

Thank you for your quick response.

I want to count the amount of Purchases the PO has. If I change it to the below I get 4, 1 cloner, 3 Purchases.

 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
 
def issueLinkManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager() 
def issueLinks = issueLinkManager.getInwardLinks(issue.getId())
 
def subElements = issueLinks.findAll {    issueLinks*.issueLinkType.name.contains('Requisition') }
 
return subElements.size() as Double

 

 

Ok it is now showing the correct number but if i add in another 'Inward' link it adds them all together. It seems to be ignoring the name.contains().

You want: issueLinks.findAll { it.issueLinkType.name.contains('Requisition') }

Actually it should be: issueLinks.findAll { it.issueLinkType.name == 'Requisition' }
