I have a situation where I need to auto-populate the Original Estimate field with 0:15m instead of the standard 0:00m with after the issue is created.
When I have attempted to create this automation rule:
When -> Issue Created
Then -> Edit Issue
Field -> there is no option to choose the Original Estimate field as it does not appear in the list of available options.
Is there a reason why certain fields like Reporter are unavailable from the dropdown?
Is there another process I could try to accomplish this use case?
Hi @Ramaiah Pendli,
Thanks for the reply.
That's the confusing part to me.
I have the Time Tracking fields in all three screens (create, edit, view). We use Time Tracking across the board.
When I try to choose those fields from the Field option in the Edit issue, they do not appear. All the other fields identified in the Edit Screen (except for Reporter) are available.
Neither Time Tracking nor the individual Original Estimate or Remaining Estimate are options. I don't know why. Is there a setting somewhere else that is rendering these fields invisible in the drop down?
I had a similar issue when trying to use the automation rules.
My solution was to modify the workflow instead. I ended up adding a post function to the 'Issue Created' transition that set the Original Estimate field to 2h. You just have to make sure that any field updates come before the 'Creates issue Originally' step otherwise they won't be committed to the DB. See the Jira documentation here.
