How to calculate Square Root of a field?


Is there a way to calculate the square root of a field (I have a select list with different numeric values) and display the result in another field?

Actually I found a way (Calculated Number Field):


<!-- @@Formula:
if (issue.get("customfield_11733")==null) return null;
return Math.sqrt(issue.get("customfield_11733"));

You'll find that you have most basic Java math functions. Misc Custom Fields uses Beanshell scripting language itself.

This is not avaliable out of the box.

A plugin like Misc Calculated Fields or Scriptrunner can accomplish this, otherwise it is usually accomplished by writing a Custom Field add-on (for Server) or Issue Field integration (for Cloud).

hmmm yeah i already have Misc Calculated Fields, i tried with a calculated field, but i can't figure out which formula is needed.
