I am running into a wall when trying to get this to work. What I would like to do is to sum up all of the time spent on all of the issues linked on an epic, and then all of the epics linked to specific issue.
So it would look something like this (Lets say Theme is the custom issue type)
Theme <- Epics <- Story/Tasks
Is there any way to do this with OOTB, Automation, or with the JMWE plugin?
Concerning trying to do this with Automation you might be able to leverage some of the lessons learned in this post:
Hey @Jordan Berry
Unfortunately the way I approach this problem was with automation and with lookupissue smart value. Lookupissue smart value can only be used with specific values (Smart values - general | Jira Service Management Cloud | Atlassian Support). As stated in the previous link that @Trudy Claspill provided, you'll see a workaround for story points, which utilizes the "Create Variable" action within the automation.
I'm not aware if you could use JMWE, since anything from JMWE will be inside the workflow, thus you'll lose the ability of a "listener" (unless JMWE has a listener of its own).
Scriptrunner most likely would be my choice for calculating anything.
Just thinking about another way to solve this from automation:
I haven't tried it but I expect it should work.
I have something functioning with JMWE, but for some reason, it doesnt fire on issue updated (When logging time) or when Time Tracking changes. I noticed your solution listens to the Time Tracking field @Alex Koxaras , have you had any issues with it actually getting hit when logging time/work?
Jira is a great tool to use across different departments. Forget that paperwork – switch to Jira and get that tasks done smoothly. Marketing Jira allows for a complete digital transformation of you...
