We have custom fields called "Story Points 2" and "Story Points" used for estimating the efforts. Many projects Boards in our organization are pointing to either of these fields. Now to standardize the estimation field we have advised our teams to move to "Story Points" field instead of "Story Points 2". Is there a easy way to migrate the data present in "Story Points 2" Field to "Story Points" field so that all the reports and historical data are moved to new estimation field? Right now, after we have moved to new field the reports are not showing old data for obvious reasons. Please advise.
Atlassian support had suggested to do the below steps:
Basically, you must follow the steps below:
The above was not a feasible solution as number of project invloved was high. Please advise if we have any alternative way to fix this issue.
I also tried
The easiest way I can think of is:
Hi @Ignacio Pulgar [Tecnofor] Many Thanks for this tip. I tired this and I was able to move the valus of the field from SP 2 to SP. But when I look at the Sprint reports they still do not look right for some reason. (FYI..After this step I changed the board to point to SP as Estimation Statistic).After this move I was assuming that all the historical data in the sprint reports and gagets etc would show the data correctly. Are we missing a trick here? Please advise.
Sprint Reports will not be recalculated, as they should keep the values they had when they were created. No workaround for this.
However, future Sprint Reports will be created according to your new setting, being estimated on Story Points.
Glad to hear the trick worked.
Would you mind accepting my answer?
The only other off-the-shelf option is repeated bulk-edits to add the data to the new field before removing the old field.
But I suspect you really want to use something like script runner to write a one-off script that will go through all the issues with a value in the unwanted field in one go, updating the other.
