JIRA Automation - Set Original Estimate


is it possible to set a original estimate with JIRA Automation?

I'm using Issue Event Trigger (creation) and Edit Issue Action with the following expression to set 8 hours:

But it's not working...No error appears in Audit log.

 What should I put to Edit issue action?

Thank you!

Are your screens/field configuration set up to display "Time Tracking"? One thought would be it is effectively being set but you cannot view the estimate when looking at the issue if Time Tracking isn't enabled on the Screen configuration for that issue.

Hello Marc,

Thank you for your answer. The Time Tracking fields are enabled in the screen of the issue. So, it's not that problem...:(
