I am trying to use the Sigma Time Spent in a custom calculated field, but I need the Constant Field Value.
I use Structure, and am displaying the column Sigma (the symbol Sigma) Time Spent, which rolls up the total time spent for all tasks indented below the parent. I want that number to be used in a Jira Misc Custom Field calculated field. However, I have tried to use "aggregatetimespent" but that does not work.
What is the constant field value for Sigma Time Spent?
The totals you see in Structure do not come from any custom field, but are calculated by Structure. They cannot be stored in a custom field in general case because you may have multiple structures and different values for the same issue but in different structures.
To use this value in a calculated field, you need to access Structure API. Some introduction is given here: https://wiki.almworks.com/x/oYF7 and the method you need is ProgressCalculator.getProgressInfo() - see http://almworks.com/structure/javadoc/latest/com/almworks/jira/structure/api/progress/ProgressCalculator.html
Hope this helps!
But the field Sigma Actual Time (using the actual symbol for Sigma, not the word), is available as a field in the normal Jira Issue Searcher too.
I can view Sigma Time Spent in Structur or in a normal Issue Filter. The issue filter doesn't have a concept of which structure is being used.
What is the constant field value for the Sigma Time Spent that is displayed in the Issue searcher?
See the column headings in the attached pic.
