Create a custom field for benefit points

JonatanWins July 6, 2022

Hello. I am trying to implement benefit points which are used to estimate and compare the value of different issues. What I want to accomplish is to add another number next to the story point estimates in the backlog, as illustrated here:story_points_jira.png

I have so far only been able to add a custom field for the issue view like this:

BP_and_SP.png

 

Later on I might want to be able to manipulate this number and calculate the benefit points of stories based on the benefit points of epics or for each task, display the amount of benefit points divided by its cost.

 

I am using the team-managed project type.

I have tried to extend Jira with atlassian-connect-express through the generalPages and

jiraIssueTabPanels, but this might be overly complicated for my use case.
What would be the best approach to try to create something like this? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi @JonatanWins and welcome to Community!

It is not possible at the moment in team-managed projects, you can upvote the related feature request: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JSWCLOUD-17336 

The easiest solution would be to use a company-managed project instead of a team-managed one.

Hi Manon, thank you for the reply! I am not quite sure how I would do this in a company-managed project either. I created a company-managed project and tried adding the custom number field, but it still only shows up in the issue view. How do I (if possible) display the number on the issue bar in the backlog of a company-managed project?

Hi @JonatanWins, you can go to ••• > Board settings > Card layout.

For example, if I want to see Components on the backlog view:

  • Here is what the Card layout menu looks like:

  • And the result:

Hope this helps,

Thank you so much @Manon Soubies-Camy _Modus Create_ , this helps a lot. Is there any way to do this for Epics in the backlog as well?

Glad it helped! You unfortunately can't customize the epic panel, so you can't add benefit points there.

A workaround could be to add the benefit points to the Epic name:

But I wouldn't recommend it since it would appear everywhere (not only in the backlog) and can confuse users:
