Unable to set Time Estimate fields with JMWE

Before converting to the Misc Extensions addin, we were able to set the Original Time Estimate field and Remaining Time Estimate field.

We now get this error message in our logs:

"Field timeoriginalestimate is not editable on issue ..."

It appears that those fields are no longer accessible. Is this true?

The usage is for recurring issues (not on a schedule). When they are done and we start then next development cycle, they get transitioned back to open. We were using post functions to set the time that was logged for the last effort used as the new Original and Remaining estimates. This keeps the time estimates more accurate to the actual effort required. Even without the desire to set the value to the time spent, we would like to reset the Remaining Time estimate when the issue is set back to Open.

Without access to these fields we have no use for the addin and the required transition to use this addin has had a negative impact on our use of Jira.

Hi Jesika,
