my company wants to manage their orders in jira. They want to have the parent issue contain a total budget and all the child tickets contain their costs which subtract from the total budget in the epic. Is this even remotely possible?
@Scott Federmanglad to hear it was hopeful :)
Yes, you can definitely modify this script so that it can be used between other issue types aside from just sub-tasks.
Hand the short script over to any engineer and they'll be able to quickly make the changes to the customfield IDs and logic for you.
Still having some issues getting the rolling budget to work. Would anyone be able to possibly show my what script will work for this? Here is the set up.
Link Type: Relates To
Function: Budget-Expense = Remaining Budget
Scenario: A project budget is entered into the budget field in the project budget issue type. Expenses are entered into the Expense field in the Order request issue type and then linked to the project budget using the relates to link type. The Remaining budget field is calculated and returned based on the expense being subtracted from the budget.
It addressed the issue whereas the child is a subtask. I am not using subtask however. It is a custom issue type of order request which is linked by "is related to". This will allow the user to create orders from the create screen instead of going into the "parent" issue and creating a subtask type which will eliminate a step for the user.
I unfortunately dont have anyone who can help me script this function so any direction you could provide would be massively helpful.
...It's true that there are projects in Jira; but they are merely a way to cut off issues, to tell them apart from other sections of work and to apply rules that are specific to that team (the schemes)....
