This powerful function compares attributes of fields. Using this script, you can compare the System Estimate and Date fields, and any numeric, date, or datetime custom field.
Logged Work Greater than Estimate
For example, to find issues where more work was logged than originally estimated, use the following:
issueFunction in expression("project = DEMO", "timespent > timeoriginalestimate")
Note that this could be achieved by using plain JQL:
workratio > 1.
To search for issues where the work logged exceeded the original estimate by more than 5 days (normalised for timetracking, so > 40 hours work logged) you would enter:
issueFunction in expression("project = DEMO", "timespent > timeoriginalestimate + 5*wd")
Notes on time tracking
When comparing calendar dates, it is useful to think of days as periods of 24 hours. However, when working with time estimates we think in terms of working hours, days (eight hours), and weeks (five days).
You can use working day units:
Or, if you are comparing time tracking fields with non-time tracking fields, for example, remaining effort and due date, use the
issueFunction in expression("resolution is empty", "now() + fromTimeTracking(remainingestimate) > duedate")
When you specify an estimate of three days, Jira stores that internally as 24 hours, but it appears as three days in Estimate fields.
Using Custom Fields
Find issues where the product of two number custom fields is greater than X:
issueFunction in expression("project = DEMO", "customfield_10026 * customfield_10028 > 100")
Compare Creator and Reporter
Find issues where the Creator is not equal to the Reporter
issueFunction in expression("project = DEMO", "creator != reporter")
Issues by Complexity
Find issues that have a high ratio of votes to complexity (assuming Complexity is a numeric field):
issueFunction in expression("project = DEMO", "votes / Complexity > 100")
