I am using timeInStatus("State") expression in view screen of the issues.
Sometimes it calculates a wrong value.
For example, for an issue created 3 days ago, timeinStatus("Open") is bigger than issue age itself.
I exported the issue to XML to see exact values
<created>Fri, 29 Nov 2019 15:30:39 +0300</created>
<customfield id="customfield_11001" key="com.fca.jira.plugins.workflowToolbox.workflow-toolbox:calculated-number-field"><customfieldname>Time in Open State</customfieldname><customfieldvalues><customfieldvalue>8.69492E8</customfieldvalue></customfieldvalues></customfield><customfield id="customfield_11002" key="com.fca.jira.plugins.workflowToolbox.workflow-toolbox:calculated-number-field"><customfieldname>Time in Test Analiz State</customfieldname><customfieldvalues><customfieldvalue>2.6772813E8</customfieldvalue></customfieldvalues>
I re-indexed the project, but it still shows wrong values.
What can cause this problem? How can I solve it?
my first guess is a little issue with the configuration of the display format. Could you please check whether "Use time tracking settings" is checked in the configuration or not? Because that would explain (thinking of the system default settings: 8h/day and 5 days/week) the higher value instead of just counting 24 hours per day. Please let me know if that fixes the issue. :)
you have to check the configuration of the custom field. So please have a look at that.
The misconfiguration of the custom field itself is causing the "wrong value". Which is not wrong but displayed considering your global time tracking settings instead of regular 24 hours per day.
as your screenshot clearly states:
The configuration of your custom field has to be edited. The field shows the correct value according to your configuration.
Either it tracks and displays the time in a status according to 24 hours day OR as you've configured it, the time will be displayed in "work days" according to your systems time tracking configuration.
So please press "Edit Display Format" and just untick the "Use time tracking settings" checkbox. :)
