We sometimes have fixed prices for tasks. Is Jira (I guess with custom fields) capable of storing a task's price (where the currency can be of various types) and also do related reporting (e.g. sum of the prices of unresolved tasks for a project) kind of how it is with time tables?
Thank you in advance.
You could leverage 2 or 3 custom fields
Note that this is made a bit trickier for ondemand since not all plugins are supported.
If you weren't ondemand, I would suggest a plugin like Folio which is tailored to tracking portfolios with nice budgeting reports. https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.greffon.folio
Currency conversion is tricky (accessing accurate converation rates and keeping up to date), but you could get pretty complex with a great free plugin, Script Runner, where you could handle the currency conversion of multiple types to a single reportable value. You can also use the aggregateExpression() function to get the sum using JQL.
But for ondemand you may use something like https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.eazybi.atlassian-connect.eazybi-jira for custom reporting of all sorts, and I beleive allows custom values to be defined on the fly, eliminating the need for field #3. Ortherwise To calculate the "reporting value" (again noting the complex nature of concern, and maintaining accurate means to current rates, etc) you may be able to get clever with groovy via the included plugin JIRA Misc Workflow Extension-
