• One type consists of mathematical functions, to enable more calculations you can do

• The second are aggregating functions, where you combine multiple values into one, which is necessary to reduce the results of some functions of the third type

• Relation functions, which fetch values from other related issues, so you can get values from subtasks for example

Info

Jira automatically rounds values to three decimal places. Be careful when you need exact results.

Mathematical Function

Description

Example

round(number, decimals)

Rounds the passed value to the specified number of significant decimal digits.

• round(15.386, 2) = 15.39

• round(15.5, 0) = 16

floor(number)

Rounds the passed value to the nearest lower integer.

• floor(16.34) = 16

ceiling(number)

Rounds the passed value to the nearest higher integer.

• ceiling(16.34) = 17

abs(number)

Gives the absolute value, i. e. the positive value.

• abs(-15) = 15

• abs(15) = 15

signum(number)

Normalises negative values to -1, zero to 0, and positive values to 1.

• signum(-255) = -1

• signum(0) = 0

• signum(135) = 1

mod(dividend, divisor)

Calculates the remainder of the dividend when divided by the divisor.

• mod(13, 2) = 1

Aggregating Function

Description

Example

sum(number…)

Sum of the passed values

• sum(1, 4, 5) = 10

avg(number…)

Average of the passed values

• avg(3, 5, 7) = 5

min(number…)

Smallest of the passed values

• min(-12, 0, 346) = -12

max(number…)

Largest of the passed values

• max(-135, 0, 1) = 1

Relation Function

Description

Example

Retrieves the values of the passed field from all subtasks.

Must be aggregated before using outside of a function.

parent(field)

Retrieves the values of the passed field from the parent of a subtask.

• parent("Quantity")

issuesInEpic(field)

Retrieves the values of the passed field from all issues in an epic.

Must be aggregated before using outside of a function.

• min(issuesInEpic("Budget"))

epic(field)

Retrieves the values of the passed field from the epic of an issue.

• epic("Price")
