Could not convert field value to a number.

Haaji SB I'm New Here Jan 13, 2021

Hi Everyone!

I am trying to make multiple fields automatically sum up into another custom field for my WSJF scores.  It seems as though I have everything set correctly but I cannot get the value to show up on the card here are a few screenshots to walk you through what I have set up. If Time Criticality, User Business Value, or Risk Reduction-Opportunity Enablement Value change: Then create new variable that sums up the 3 fields, here is the entire syntax:

= {{#=}}{{Issue.Time Criticality|0}} + {{Issue.User Business Value|0}} + {{Issue.Risk Reduction-Opportunity Enablement Value|0}}{{/}}

It even looks like the rule is working as in the error message it is showing me that it is totaling correctly but it is throwing this error and not filling in the Cost of Delay field on my cards.

If anyone could help me out with this it would be much appreciated.

Remove the "=" sign from the start of your formula.
