How to auto-set remaining estimate when story point value is changed?

We use story points to estimate amount of time to complete an issue during the sprint planning process. Assume 1 story point = 1 day of work. Before starting the sprint, I go through each each item and set the remaining time according to the story point value set during the planning meeting. This is a tedious and error-prone process.

Is there a way to automatically set the remaining time estimate when the story point value is changed? For example, if someone changes a story point value to 2, it should automatically set remaining time to 2d.

You can use the concept of JIRA listeners, these are basically codes that are eexcuted when something changes and do something specific.

Genenrally you need to write a plugin for it. But if you have script runner plugin installed then you can write a script listener which is listening for change on "story point" field and when that changes happens then the listener code will update the remaining time based on the logic which you want.
