How to bulk move the story points estimate values to original estimate field?


I need to move story point estimates in stories and tasks to original estimate fields of this stories and tasks. Is it possible? Maybe using scriptrunner plugin or something else?

I need help.

You can't just "move" the data.  Story points represent complexity (for want of a better word), whereas the original estimate is "amount of time we expect to spend working on this"

Assuming you do want to make some time-equivalence though, then you'll need to work out a formula to translate the story point value unto a number of seconds and then write a script that can read the story point value, calculate and then update the estimate.

Hi Nic, any idea how to update the estimate? 

I have migrated from Next gen to Classic, and want to update the `Story points` field with the values in `Story Points estimate`.
