How do I set up an automation rule for field Original Estimate

Caitlin_Pedersen April 12, 2024

We are using Jira time tracking and would like to use Foxly to to help us prioritize our tasks.

So I'm trying to set up an automation rule that links the field Original estimate to the metric Effort in Foxly. So, e.g. when Original Estimate is < 2h Effort = Very easy.

However, when I try to set up an "If issue field condition" statement I am not able to choose the field Original Estimate or Time tracking.

So, I've tried to set up an "If: Compare two values" statement, but it seems like I'm not writing the right expression.

What is the correct expression or is there another way to set up this automation rule that would work?

Thank you!

Hi @Caitlin_Pedersen 

Welcome to the community.

You can use {{issue.timetracking.originalEstimateSeconds}}

Compare if it is less than 7200.

Hi @Tansu Akdeniz

What if I want to set up the rule that if Original Estimate is between 4 - 6.5 hours then Effort = Medium.

I have tried to use an ELSE IF statement and made the following, but it doesn't seem to work.

Do you have any suggestions on how I can solve this issue?

Thank you!
