JIRA Time Tracking setting


If I set an task due date an start date, can the Time Tracking auto setting the Estimated date?


I set an task start date :2013-1-1

and the due date:2013-1-5

so the Estimated date is :5d

No, you have to do it using a post functions mostly using Script Runner plugin. JIRA does not have a builtin feature to this.

Hi Renjith: I am evaluting the JIRA, and I don't have much experience of develop JIRA. Have the example of post functions for me reference. Thanks.

Something similar. Haven't tested it. Copied the code from a couple of posts. import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue import java.sql.Timestamp MutableIssue mutableIssue = (MutableIssue)(ComponentManager.instance.getIssueManager().getIssueObject(issue.getKey())); def diff = new Timestamp(issue.getDueDate().getTime() - issue.getCreated().getTime()).getTime() def days = (int)(diff/ (1000 * 60 * 60 * 24)); mutableIssue.setOriginalEstimate(days * 8 * 3600);
