Jira Product Discovery calculated fields based on selection

Mazen ElAasser July 20, 2023

I am using a Jira Product Discovery, I have several fields, for example, MAUs field (number), Financial impact field (number) and Risk field(Text), how can I make the options that the people choose translate into a total score in a different field, for example if people put a number that is less than 100 in financial impact field it will give a score of 1, and then if they choose low risk from the Risk field options they get another score of 1 and then if they choose a number larger than 250 in MAUs filed they get a score of 5 and all of this gets summed up in a total score field?


I am aware of some plugins but my admin can't authorise the use of them so I am looking for some sort of workarounds.

Hi @Mazen ElAasser 

Based upon the complexity of your calculation, you may be able to use the built-in custom formulas feature of Jira Product Discovery:

If that will not handle your use case, you could perform more complex calculations using the built-in automation for Jira rules:

Hi @Mazen ElAasser ,

as Bill mentioned, automation is a good tool to implement your rules. We use automation to calculate the WSJF and it works fine.

Have fun

On the principle of keeping it simple to start with, I'd go with @Bill Sheboy 's suggestion of using a custom formula:


with a type of weighted score and adding your 3 fields as positive inputs:
