The built-in field (so not custom as I can't change the name of it) "Story point estimate" is not being recognised in any automations. Is there a way to fix this or, alternatively, is there a way for me to set the value I want in that field automatically using JSON?
What problem are you trying to solve by doing this?
I ask, as you note using a Company-managed project (CMP), and those use the "Story points" field. The Team-managed projects (TMP) use the "Story point estimate" field. All of the built-in handling and reporting of story points for the project types match those field uses.
@Kristine Lurane Have you checked in custom fields that "Story point estimate" field is available in system and locked.
Are you using Team Managed Project or Company Managed Project ?
Is "Story Point Estimate" field available on Create/Edit Screen or not ?
You're getting that error because that field isn't available on your screen, and your project is company-managed.
If you still wish to use the story point estimate field, you might have to liaise with your Jira Administrator and make you a new project. However, if using story points, which is the corresponding field in company-managed projects, is sufficient, then you should be fine using the listed fields in the automation dropdown for story points.
I hope this helps.
Yes, In Team Managed project by Default "Story Point estimate" present on screen while in Company Managed Scrum project field "Story Point and Story Point estimate" not available on screen by default, We need to add field on screen. If both are for same purpose, user can use any of the field.
@Vikrant Yadav @Bill Sheboy @Francis Batilo Thank you, Vikrant, for showing me exactly where to check this. I'm using a team-managed one as it turns out so according to all of you the story point estimate should be working.
And, yes, when I go to create a card the story point estimate field is there, if that is what you meant. The one other thing that might be useful to note is that we use story point estimates on subtasks, not just the parent card and epics because that is the default setting. However, I did get IT to change it so that they work on every issue type:
@Kristine Lurane Thanks for confirming that you are using Team Managed project. In Team Managed project , project admin can add remove fields from Issue types :-
Go to project settings >> Click "Issue Types" >> For each Issue types you see the set of fields available on screen like Description , Assignee etc, if field is not available you can drag that field from Right side panel and drop that field under Context field section.
@Vikrant Yadav Firstly, thank you so much for all your help with this. Unfortunately, mine is still showing up with this:
It won't even let me make the automation live because of it. I'm starting to think there isn't a solution to this, so if I should now somehow close this question then please let me know. Thanks again.
