Calculated Number Field update

hello, in one transition i am setting value of "last time duration" (in minutes, i.g. 10) and i would like to update Calculated Number Field "TOTAL" - add last time to TOTAL ... but when i reffer in formula to itself, it doesnt work ...

<!-- @@Formula: (issue.get("customfield_10600") != null ? issue.get("customfield_10600") : 0) + (issue.get("customfield_10602") != null ? issue.get("customfield_10602") : 0) -->

//id of TOTAL is 10602, id of last time is 10600 ...

thank you

ok, i figured it out:

i have Calculated Number Field called "Total time" from plugin JIRA Misc Custom Fields. Next i have Number field "null" and Number field "last time". In transition "Add last time duration to total time" i am entering value in field "last time". In create transition i am copying valu from "total time" to "null" ---- this is my way of setting null field to value 0, because calculated number field has default value 0 if all others fields are ot defined, that i am add together in description of the Calculated number field. Next i am using number field "last value".

Description of "total time":

<!-- @@Formula: (issue.get("customfield_10600") != null ? issue.get("customfield_10600") : 0) + (issue.get("customfield_10604") != null ? issue.get("customfield_10604") : 0) -->

//id for "last value"=10600, id for "last time"=10604

The clue to achieve the result (to add a value to total counter) is in transition BEFORE entering value of "last time" execute this copying: last value := total time AND last time:= null.

Simply solutions are the best :)

You are using some plugin, but which one? What language is that?

hi jamie, i am using

JIRA Misc Custom Fields1.5.1 where is

Calculated Number Field

p.s.: "but when i reffer in formula to itself, it doesnt work ..." - the resulted value is much more greater than expected, when i am reffering to the same field: A = A + B (A is reffering to itself)

OK... sorry, not familiar with that plugin.

are you familiar with some other plugin, to get the correct result? sollution, when i need t add one number to total count? thx

and please can you try to give me a hint, how to manage scripting to achieve my goal? this is blocking issue for me right now ...

on some screens (screens associated with transitions between states) i can enter a value for "last duration" and after submitting the screen, i want to add this value to TOTAL duration field ...

Hi Peter Novak,

I have still not figured out the issue, I am doing exactly same given by you.




you need three variables: variable "null" with value 0, variable "old_value" and variable "add_this_value" -- these variables are Number Fields. Now you need Calcuted Number field "Total". In description of "Total" type:

<!-- @@Formula: (issue.get("customfield_10600") != null ? issue.get("customfield_10600") : 0) + (issue.get("customfield_10604") != null ? issue.get("customfield_10604") : 0) -->

10600 is ID for field "old_value" and 10604 is ID for field "add_this_value".

1. in create transition use post script Copy value from Field to Field and copy value from "Total" to "null"

2. Now say, you are entering value for field "add_this_number" via screen in "transition1". Before traansition1 you need to add post script (to transition0) that will Copy value from Field to Field: old_value := Total AND add_this_value := null;

And thats it :)
