Thank you for reaching out.
Per your description, I understand you are trying to configure an automation rule (Under project settings > Automation), however, the triggers, actions, and conditions do not display the "Story point estimate" field. Is that correct?
Please, allow me to provide you some concepts about the behavior you are facing so we can confirm we are on the same page here:
I'm afraid the Jira Automation does not work properly for Next-gen projects and do not recognize the Story point estimate field, as explained in the bug reported below:
We are currently working to fix the bug above, so please keep an eye open on that to receive any updates about its fix implementation. As a possible workaround, you can migrate your issues to a Classic project and use the field Story points to estimate it, which displays properly in Automation rules.
Additionally to the information above, I would like to make sure you know that the Story Point Estimate field was created to estimate issues only in Next-gen projects. This field will not work to estimate issues in Classic projects, where you should use the Story Points field, as explained in the top answer of the thread below:
Let us know if you have any questions.
