GreenHopper doesn't allow setting of point estimates on bugs. Is there a way to enable this?

I'm trialling the Scrum support in GreenHopper 5.10 (Jira 5.06) on a fresh local install. I've come across an issue where the Rapid Board allows me to put in point estimates for Stories, but not for Bugs.

I can't see any obvious settings about this in the admin pages. Is there a way to put bugs in a sprint and provide estimates for them?

Hi Andrew,

You absolutely can apply story points to bugs if you wish. Out of the box the Story Points field is only associated with Epic and Story issue types.

Some instructions for enabling Story Points to be associated to Bug issue types are here.


That did the trick. Thanks.
