Groovy: show time this issue In-Progress status (Not Total)

How i can show up days count of last transition.
I dont need calculate total, this value should be refreshable and setted per new transition.

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 = "In Progress"

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))

Can some one help me?

Can you help me a little bit?
Now current field show me a seconds, 

how i can convert it to time? (minutes/hours/days?)

getDurationString should return you a properly formatted duration... 

Best thing is to return a Long then use the template as I originally recommended. I don't think the search will work though. Try all this with no searcher.

 I'll tried this all with searcher "None" and with sting/long combinations:







It doesnt worked in JIRA 6.4.5 and Script Runner v 3.1.4

Nevertheless thank you @Jamie Echlin [Adaptavist].


something goes wrong...

Change the searcher for the field to Duration, as I said in my answer. If you don't see Duration you might be using an older version, if so which one?

Current versiob is: v 3.1.4

Set the searcher for the field to None then, but it's best if you can upgrade so you can using the duration indexer. You didn't answer the question about whether it was there by the way.

Hi @Jamie Echlin [Adaptavist] 
I did what you recommended, so i can see now is that it is:$jiraDurationUtils.getFormattedDuration($value) 



import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def changeHistoryManager = ComponentAccessor.getChangeHistoryManager()
def items = changeHistoryManager.getChangeItemsForField (issue, "status").reverse()

if (items) {
    return ((new Date().time - items.first().created.time) / 1000) as Long
else {
    return ((new Date().time - issue.getCreated().time) / 1000) as Long

Searcher: Duration

Custom template:

#if ($value)

@Jamie Echlin [Adaptavist] Hi!
Please, clarify.

Jamie, yes.
Could you add more details here, sorry but i dont know how realise it via groovy code, can you advise please?

You just want the time in the current status? Then you just need to subtract the first change item returned from the current date.

Hi Jamie,
Yes, you right.
This code show me total days. But i'm needed to show up days according each transition to this status (not total).

For example (how this should work):
I changed my status from Open to In-Progress yesterday, and now i see 1 day,
I changed it status to on-hold, then i am again changed it to in-progress and now i see 1 min,

do you understand?

Can you elaborate on "How i can show up days count of last transition". Why did you post that code, is that what you have tried?
