Custom calculated field(s)

Hi I am trying to do the following either in JIRA itself or using eazyBI

Take two custom fields:


Field1  Field2  Total

2          1          1 (if there is an entry in field2 subtract it from field1)

2                      2   (if there is no entry in field2 carry over the total from field1)

Sum Sum Sum


Can anybody help me here ?

Hi, Sherri!

If Field 1 and Field 2 are imported in eazyBI, you can create a new calculated measure with arithmetical calculation formula:

[Measures].[Field 1] - [Measures].[Field 2]

In case, if Field 2 is empty, the result will be a value from Field 1. Add this measure in columns.

If these custom fields are imported as measures, you can use measures "Field 1 created" and "Field 2 created" (or for due and resolved issus) to get them rolled-up for projects or other dimensions. 

To get the total for each column, use eazyBI option Total.

For more specific answer please write to and describe what kind of custom fields they are, how they are imported and the report you want to build.

Can I ask, you're looking for this to be data within JIRA, the results of aforementioned fields calculate to obtain a value for a third field? I ask because the concept of scripted fields isn't very possible in JIRA Cloud.
