RemainingEstimate not getting change, when originalEstimate are added and time is logged -Automation Edited

We need to create an automation rule when I set the value of the Story Size allocation, Story point (Custome field) and original estimate, and the remaining estimate field is equal to the original estimate.


If Story Size allocation = XS, Story Size = 1, original estimate = 2h, remaining estimate = 2h.

If Story Size allocation = S, Story Size = 2, original estimate = 4h, remaining estimate = 4h.

If Story Size allocation = M, Story Size = 3, original estimate = 6h, remaining estimate = 4h.

Now we run the automation and allocate the story size as XS and all te set value fields get auto-populated.

Now user add worklog = 1h

Now we want to change the story size allocation to M or S

So the fields are auto-populated but the remaining estimate is now equal to the original estimate.

I want remaining estimate = ( original estimate - worklog) from Jira automation

Please advise how to implement this using jira automation. 

Thanks in advance :)

Why do you need automate via Jira automation?

if you log work and on ticket you have estimation, the changes of remaining estimate will change automatically.



Hi Gonchik

Thanks for the quick response

I want to update multiple values from a single field, I want to restrict few users to edit original estimate, remaining estimate, story point and story size. So I want to do it by automation. 

can you help?



Why not use the edit issues and time tracking permissions in that case?

Hi @Ravi Sagar _Adaptavist_ 

I am using the edit issue trigger but what do you mean by time tracking permissions can you help me in this query.



Hi @Gonchik Tsymzhitov 

The time tracking is already configured and is well in place with all the required permissions.
