How to get a calculated field when the field is an automated one based on custom fields?


I try to get the get the Priority field (an automated JIRA field) with the following options Critical, High, Medium, Low calculated by the weight on 2 custom fields: Impact and Urgency.

Impact has the following options:



 Urgency has the following options:


 the weight of impact and urgency should automatically determine the Priority following specific rules. For example, a extensive/widespread impact and a critical urgency should result in a Critical priority.

Could you please tell me how and if I can add a calculation script in the Priority whil it's not a custom field?

Thanks a lot

What scripting add-on are you using to do this?

Hi Melissa,


Were you able to get this to work?  If so - would you be willing to share the approach you ended up taking?  We're trying to accomplish the same thing with our JIRA set-up at Cornell.
