I notice that if I try to edit an issue before work is logged, then I am allowed to update the original estimate. However once I log work on an issue and it shows up as Time Spent, I can no longer update the original estimate.
I understand this is bad practice and should not be enabled by default, but is there some way to do this after the fact? It really screws up lots of reports and does not look good in the Rapid Boards to not have an original estimate against issues.
If you cannot change Original Estimate values on issues after work has been logged on them but you wish to do so, request that your JIRA administrator disables Legacy Mode on Time Tracking.
If your JIRA administrator has added the ability to specify/modify time estimates on other workflow transition screens in JIRA's default workflow (or a d workflow), you will be able to specify/modify time estimates during those workflow transitions too. Additionally, if your JIRA administrator has added this ability to JIRA screens used by other issue types, you can also specify time estimates when creating or editing these types of issues.
