Set the "Original Estimate" field based on the value of a custom field.

I'm trying to set the "Original Estimate" field based on the value of a custom field (Select List (single choice)).
I don't know why it won't set the value. Setting another field "Description" works just fine.
I assume that I'm holding the proper objects as the logging is correct.

 

def qualification = getFieldByName("Qualification").getValue();
def originalEstimate = getFieldById("timetracking");
def descr = getFieldById("description");

log.info("qualification: '" + qualification + "'");
log.info("originalEstimate: '" + originalEstimate.getValue() + "'");

if (qualification == "Very Small") {
	descr.setFormValue("15m");
	originalEstimate.setFormValue("15m");
} else if (qualification == "Small") {
	descr.setFormValue("30m");
	originalEstimate.setFormValue("30m");
} else if (qualification == "Medium") {
	descr.setFormValue("1h");
	originalEstimate.setFormValue("1h");
} else if (qualification == "Large") {
	descr.setFormValue("2h");
	originalEstimate.setFormValue("2h");
} else if (qualification == "Very Large") {
	descr.setFormValue("4h");
	originalEstimate.setFormValue("4h");
}

IIRC the time tracking field is actually two fields on screen, so you need:

getFieldById("timetracking_originalestimate")

It's a "special case".

Hy Jamie,

Thx for your response!

I tried using 'getFieldById("timetracking_originalestimate")', but it doesn't seem to work at all.

When debugging my Jira, I noticed that the time tracking form field has 'timetracking' as id. I don't know if it's a small bug in Jira or if I just have a bad version.
