    Use scripting to make JIRA the way you want it

    Built-in administration/maintenance scripts

    Powerful JQL functions

    Scripted Fields

    Useful default functionality for administrators, for instance "su" to another user, copy a project etc etc, or run your own groovy scripts.

    Script Runner ships with a long list of extremely powerful JQL functions. For instance, query for parent tasks on attributes of their subtasks, find all issues that are blocked by unresolved bugs.

    Create your own calculated custom fields with groovy, the simple scripting language. You may never need to learn maven!

    Could not live in JIRA land without this absolutely indispensable plugin. Finally a good way to deal with the things that it's not quite worth the time and effort to build a small plugin for. Whats more, judging by Atlassian Answers, this plugin has some of the best support out there. A lot of us in the JIRA ecosystem owe you one Jamie, many thanks.

    This plugin has allowed me to seamlessly implement our actual desired Agile flow and minimize our Scrum Team's time in JIRA, letting them focus on their actual work. Any questions I had or problems I encountered were already answered online or I could quickly figure them out. There is nothing I have not been able to tackle with this plugin.

    More details

    Script Runner is a collection of powerful but easy-to-use workflow functions, JQL functions, listeners and services.

    Either augment the ones provided with groovy, or write your own. You may never need to write your own java plugin again.
