I realize a google search will reveal hundreds, if not thousands of related answers but none of them address what I want. Here is what I want
I managed to get points 4 and 5 working, but I didn't document my work, and now I can't recreate it. In any case, I can't get point 3 working, so I have to go create the issue, then go in the Issue Detail View and change it.
I find this is the problem with Jira: It does not have a clean, unified interface. Instead, it has context sensitive functionality which does not need to be so. Also, the high degree of customization is all over the place to the point that one has to go to system preferences to enable time tracking, then go to the Board Preferences to customize, all this for something that is always required for projects: Time Tracking.
It feels like you are overcomplicating things here - wanting to enter three different and potentially conflicting estimates seems odd to me. Certainly bad for your users, they don't need to do all of that.
I don't understnad your last paragraph at all. JIRA has a complex interface because it's a complex system. It is a little inconsistent to admins in some places, but for users, it's unified and not in the slighest bit "context sensitive" (unless your admins have messed up). The config for time-tracking is context sensitive, yes, because it's useful.
Nic, if they are conflicting, then they should not be allowed to be used together.
I stand by my context sensitive comment. If, in the Active Sprint view you click on a Task, it comes out on the right. If you control click it, it comes out in its own page. When it is on the right, I can change the Estimate. When it's on it's own page I can not. That is a huge design flaw to me
To give you another example, When on the right, the Move command is under "..">More>Move. When done from its own page it is simply under More>Move.
There are also 3 different ways to view and edit Issues: on the right, in its own page and under the Issues tab
If you spend enough time as a Jira admin - whether you are managing a single, mid-sized instance, a large enterprise one or juggling multiple instances at once - you will eventually find yourself in ...
