I'm using Jira cloud. I recently created a Post Function that sets the value of Original Estimate = 0 for all new issues when they are created. Now I need to bulk change the value of existing issues from NULL to 0.
The only estimate-related field that shows up when I select 'Edit Issues' is 'Change Time estimated (in hours)' which is an entirely different field.
Is there some way to bulk change the Original Estimate value?
Hey @Sheri ,
Currently JIRA does not allow you to bulk edit time estimate fields. But there is a feature request you can vote for at https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-5034
This can be done using the External System Import (CSV).......
Once you will try this
Step 1: Query the issues you want to edit in Issue Navigator
Step 2: Export by CSV
Step 3: Edit Original Estimate
Step 4: Import issues
If I understand your question, you can create a new transition in your workflow that transitions from any status back to itself.
Place a new screen in the transition you might call "My New Estimate Transition Screen", with a new field you might call "My New Estimate Field."
When you transition a single ticket (or bulk), the system prompts you to enter your new estimate in the "My New Estimate Field."
Using a post-function with say a 1 second delay, the system will copy the data from your "My New Estimate Field" to your original estimate field.
I am doing this in my head, and I do have JMWE loaded, but it seems like this can all be accomplished OOTB.
