I need a custom field which is a simple calculation of two other fields. Which plugin should I use?

I'd like to create a custom field which performs a calculation of two other number fields: "Business Value" / "Story Points" == the result of that equation would could be a read-only value of a custom/calculated field called ROI.

I presume a plug-in already exists which can achieve this goal. I'd like your advice which plug-in we should consider?

Answer: OnDemand doesn't have any facilities for scripted/calculated fields.

I'd always reach for the script-runner first. There are no easy, generic "calculate a field" type plugins, mostly because the range of things you might want to calculate are so wide, there's no way to code for all of them

The script runner makes derived fields quite easy, but you'll still need to write a bit of code to do it.

JIRA misc custom fields plugin, if script runner isn't your deal then

JIRA Misc Custom Fields add-on is evidently not available for use with "JIRA On-Demand" instances. :(

Correct, OnDemand doesn't have any facilities for scripted/calculated fields.

Ah, OnDemand. You should add the tags "jira-ondemand" and "ondemand" to your questions so that the community knows about this fact.

Not sure if I can BUMP this, but was a solution found?  I'm also looking to do the same 'ROI' calculation.

P.S. I'm a newbie - I have JIRA Server admin access but no access to developers for any coding.
