update the time estimation through the JIRA REST API Edited

I am struggling to update the time estimation through the API, can anybody help me regarding this issue?

Is it possible to update following attributes through the API? (aggregatetimeoriginalestimate,
timeestimate, timeoriginalestimate, aggregatetimeestimate, aggregateprogress, progress)

Thanks!

I have to update this property.toupdate.png

No, because they're not attributes or fields you set, they're calculated from the issue data.

See https://developer.atlassian.com/jiradev/jira-apis/jira-rest-apis/jira-rest-api-tutorials/updating-an-issue-via-the-jira-rest-apis and https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/server/#api/2/issue-editIssue - you're looking for the "timetracking" field.

You can set one or both parts of it - originalestimate and remainingestimate.  The attributes you are looking for are then calculated from those two and the worklogs on the issue.

it does not work for me...

JSON which I received is:

{
    errorMessages :
    [],
    errors :
    {
        timetracking : "Field 'timetracking' cannot be set. It is not on the appropriate screen, or unknown."
    }
}

 

 

in the same way I am also able to set a description, that means that my request is right.

What should I do?

the issue, in which I want to change the property "Estimated", this property is already set. (Even though updating does not work)

Second question regarding this topic were, what do I do if this property is not set?

Thanks a lot!

You need to put the timetracking field on the edit screen for the issues.

It doesn't matter if it's got a value or not, you just set it
