add Story points field to an Custom Issuetype (Standard)

Sudarshan Community Leader May 19, 2021


the field Story points is only for issuetype = Story?

Because when we create new issuetype (standard) we are unable to add the field story points, I can only add the story point estimate field.

Why this.?
we would like to create some new issue types for better product and the scrum board visualization.
Every new issuetype is fundamentally a story, just that the new ones have a different name (data story, engg story.. instead of just a story :) )

Hi @Sudarshan ,


Check the context on the field. You might find that it has context only for issue type story.

@Sudarshan To add to Jared's answer, check out my answer on a previous community post, which runs through how you can check and edit the Story Points field context to make the field available for different issue types

That worked, Thank you.!

There is a lot of confusion on these 2 fields :( 

No worries! Yeah it definitely catches a lot of people out
