My goodness Automation has some quirks.
8 hours of head scratching later here is how to sum story points at Epic level after user update.
First, create a Custom Field.
System administration -> Issues -> Custom Field -> Number Field.
I called mine "Story Points Sum for Epic"
Second, create an automation that triggers when a 'Story Point' field is changed.
Test the Automation by changing a Story Point somewhere and check log
Thanks Bill, I will look at these suggestions and see if they improve what we are doing.
A new thing: I do need to fix the Story Points Sum for Epic field to be locked. I noticed that the field can be manually overwritten. Of course it corrects as soon as a story points in dependents update.
Paul, we have the same issue with our automation-based cycle time fields. We address that by detecting if any of the calculated fields in the parent are edited manually, we trigger the recalc.
Hi @Paul Cooper and @Bill Sheboy ,
Did you know that JSU Automation Suite for Jira Workflows provides Calculated Fields capabilities on Jira Cloud?
By setting up a simple formula, you can have a field calculated for your Epic based on field values in the stories under your Epic (eg. sum of Story Points). Whenever the value of the field under your stories changes, the calculated field will be updated automatically. Plus, calculated fields are created as read-only fields.
I'm currently looking for Jira Cloud users to join my usability study for Calculated Fields and I'd be happy to schedule a call to get your feedback on our solution. If you would be interested, please DM me on LinkedIn.
