Can you clear out Story point estimate field with automation?

Edited

All I've been able to do via automation is set the Team-managed project custom `Story point estimate` field to 0. Is there any way to clear it out?

It looks in the editmeta REST endpoint that all I can do it `set` the field, is there a way to set it to an empty value?

I've tried variations of this:

{
  "fields": {
    "Story point estimate": {{clear}}
  }
}

{
  "fields": {
    "Story point estimate": {{remove}}
  }
}

{
  "update": {
    "Story point estimate": {set:{{clear}}}
  }
}

But the only thing that has worked is setting it to 0, which is not optimal

{
  "fields": {
    "Story point estimate": 0
  }
}

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!

Hello @Jim 

You said specifically "Story point estimate". Does that mean that you are working with issues in a Team Managed project?

Can you show us the Automation Rule you are currently using to set the value to 0? In my system "Story point estimate" is not a field that is selectable in the field list in the Edit Issue action, so I would guess you might be using Advance Editing with JSON to set it.

Hi @Trudy Claspill,

  That's right, and I've updated my original description to add more detail. Thanks for the help!

This works for me.

{
"fields": {
"Story point estimate": null
}
}

Hello @Jim , 

Welcome to the community!

If I understood your requirement correctly you wish to set an empty value for the story point field using the automation rule, if it is correct try keeping the value field empty in the automation rule. Sharing a snippet for reference. Hope it would help

Hi @Himanshi,

  Sorry, I am using the "Story point estimate" field, otherwise I would be able to do it this way. I am able to edit that field in bulk to clear it out, but I can't do it via automation in any way that I've tried.
