In this exercise we want to create a new custom field of type Scriptfield of Scriptrunner Jira plugin. This script field will sum all the values of some customfield of its subtasks.

Just go to Add-ons –> Scriptrunner –> Script Fields and create a new Script field like this (Total…):

Now place a script like this:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField

//return number subtasks

CustomField total = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Total")
double totalSum = 0;
for(Issue subtask: issue.getSubTaskObjects()){
    if(subtask.getCustomFieldValue(total) != null)
        totalSum += subtask.getCustomFieldValue(total)

return totalSum

Remember to change “Total” by the name of the customfield to sum. Post by MrAddon

One thought on “How to create a Jira Server script field to show in all parent ticket the SUM of some customfield of all subtasks

  1. Can you please update the script, scrip runner updated it classes and deprecated few.
    What if when an issuetype is created as a subtask type, will the script work as expected.
