How to summarize original Estimate field value with Custom field value after update


Could you please help me with following question:

I have some Custom fields (type of these fields: Number Field) to specify Estimation by role (dev,ba, qa). 


I want to set up Automation rule that will update Original Estimate field once any of these field updates.

For example, Original Estimate=0 and then I specify BA Effort Estimate as 1 - and I expect Original Estimate=1. Then I specify FE Effort Estimate as 2 - and I expect Original Estimate=3.

Is it possible to implement such Automation rule? 

Thanks in advance.

Hello Ruslan.

I implemented a similar automation for a client of mine.

Trigger : When a value changes for BA effort estimate, BE effort estimate, FE effort estimate, original estimate.

Then edit issue field original estimate :

{{#=}}{{issue.BA effort estimate|0}}+{{issue.BE effort estimate|0}}+{{issue.FE effort estimate|0}

Note that if you do it that way, original estimate will be forced by the three other fields. If you want to stay free to change original estimate yourself whenever you want, take Original estimate out of the trigger.

Tell me if it worked. ;)

Thank you for responce, Flavien :)

It's my first Automation rule so looks like I doing someting wrong. Could you please say why I got this error below:

Thanks in advance.

Good Morning, Flavien :)


Resolved - I just added {{/}} in the end and it worked now! 


Thanks a lot!

I indeed made a mistake in my copy-paste. You must always end your command with a {{/}}. For my first automation rule I had some issues finding it ;)

You're welcome, have a nice day. :)

Can you then summarize the estimate somehow only by BE or FE ?
