There is no option to assign story points to issue type 'tech debt'. Is there a setting i need to change somewhere to do this?

Hi Marie,

Story points is a custom field. You need to add this field to the screen associated with 'tech debt'.

Hi Marie,

"tech debt" must be a custom issue type but in any event you can certainly add SP to it assuming you are an admin. Just go to the project settings and screens and add it to the screen you want, e.g. create and/or edit.

Hi @Marie Mitchell ,

Custom field context is not configured for story points with respect to Tech Debt issue type.

Go to Custom fields > Story Points > Configure > Add Tech Deb Issue type.

Please find below documentation on how to add custom field context in JIRA.

Also add story point field screens of Tech Debt issue type.

This is one of the most reliable as well as secures approaches to lower your interest & pay down your debt instantly. Rather than paying different loans with different interest rates, IVA advice, simply consolidate them all into one low-interest loan.
