How to limit story points to a dropdown value

I would like to set the story points field to only accept 1,2,3,5,8,13 via a dropdown.

Is that possible?

Hi Pablo

As it turns out, GreenHopper treat the story points field as a number field. Currently this feature doesn't exist at GreenHopper configuration. You could rase a support ticket, so they can open a feature request and the more votes it get, better the chance to it be implemented in future releases.

I would like to see this behavior as well.

I am also hoping to see this behavior.

Any updates on this?

No, as it's behaving as designed and intended.

The closest you will get to a workaround is a little bit of code.

  • Remove Story Points from the Edit screen
  • Add a new select list custom field with your numbers listed, place on the create and edit screen
  • Add an add-on that can enable you to write a listener that
    • Runs when issues are created, edited or transitioned
    • Reads your select list and copies the number into Story points
