How to change "Original Estimate" field after the first worklog entry has been entered?

Hi,

I have written the following code to change the "Original Value" field.

IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
MutableIssue issue = issueManager.getIssueObject("TASKTEST-313")
ApplicationUser user =  ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser();

Long val = 3600 * 4

issue.setOriginalEstimate(val)
issueManager.updateIssue(user,issue, EventDispatchOption.ISSUE_UPDATED,false)

 

The code above works fine before any worklog entry is entered. However, after the first worklog entry has been entered, the value of "Original Estimate" is not changed by running the code above although it is possible to change the value of "Original Estimate" via the GUI Edit dialog window

What am I missing?


Additional Information


I am able to change the value of "Original Estimate" by using the method store() of MutableIssue which is however deprecated so I would prefer not to use it.

IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
MutableIssue issue = issueManager.getIssueObject("TASKTEST-314")
ApplicationUser user =  ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser();

Long val = 3600 * 4

issue.setOriginalEstimate(val)
issue.store()

 

Further Information

I am also able to change the "Original Estimate" value by using IssueService as below. However, I cannot yet understand why IssueManager.update does not work. 

IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
MutableIssue issue = issueManager.getIssueObject("TASKTEST-314")
ApplicationUser user =  ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser();
IssueService issueService = ComponentAccessor.getIssueService()

Long val = 3600 * 4


IssueInputParameters inputParameters = issueService.newIssueInputParameters()
inputParameters.setOriginalEstimate((Long)(val/60))
IssueService.UpdateValidationResult validationResult = issueService.validateUpdate(user,issue.id,inputParameters)
issueService.update(user, validationResult)

But it works using IssueService, so does it matter?

That's pretty normal, in my experience. IssueService is, by its own description, better suited to making sure all the magic happens.

This services methods will make sure that when dealing with Issue's that all of JIRA's business rules are enforced. This means that permissions and data validation will be checked, proper events will be fired, and notifications will be triggered.

 

I'm guessing that derived fields like remainingEstimate, and possibly even Original Estimate itself need some of that business logic sauce behind the scenes, at least in certain contexts.
