Formula colunms are not appeared in selection list of another formula

Hi Dear Jira users,

I defined several formula columns in a structure. When I created a new formula column and would link a variable to one existing formula column (variable base to base column), none of formula columns was displayed among available columns.

Had you already met this kind of cases or have you an idea about the reason ?Formula variables.png

Hello @Xavier Tang 

Dionathan from ALM Works here.

It appears you are encountering a bug that we identified in Structure 7.2. We are finding that some formulas where the "Sum over sub-items" option is enabled are presenting the error you have experienced.

We are working on a fix for this and will notify you here as soon as it is available. You can also contact us at if you want us to notify you directly.

For now, disabling "sum over sub-items" should resolve the issue. Downgrading to Structure 7.0 is also an option that will allow you to use your formula along with "sum over sub-items" enabled.

We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to sharing our update with you soon.

Best Regards,
