I'm interested in calculating aggregate values using Jira Automation, basically sums of field values such as Story Points and Original Estimate/Remaining Estimate of issues that share a Sprint. Ideally, this would be done during sprint planning - therefore I would be able to know the aggregated original estimate for all issues.
As an example, consider Assignee A has selected 3 issues for 'Sprint X', each of them having various 'originalEstimate' values. I would like to know if Assignee A is overloaded in 'Sprint X', i.e. the sum of all 'originalEstimate' in days would be larger than 10 days (2wk sprint).
I've tried doing it this way, but I can clearly see that I cannot edit a created variable on the 'For JQL' loop. I've also tried using a 'Lookup Issues' loop, but that didn't accumulate 'originalEstimate' value.
Hi @Gezim Basha
You are correct about no edit for created variables, which is why I suggested this:
...and, limited access to fields with lookupIssues, which is why I suggested this:
...and, created variables have scoping limits. There is an article describing the use of created variables to preserve the value outside of a branch...but it only works when there is one-and-only-one issue for the branch. Otherwise shadowing appears to clear the value repeatedly.
What work-arounds could you do instead...
