Task Progress Calculation Based on User-Entered Number


I'm trying to set up a system for tracking progress on localization projects. The way we traditionally track progress is the number of text characters that have been translated. I want to set things up so issues can have fields for users to enter numbers of "Total Characters," "Characters Translated," and "Characters Edited," which then displays some sort of progress bar based on simple math (i.e. Characters Translated/Total Characters = % Done). I've looked around a bit, but I can't figure out a way to do this on JIRA Cloud. Is there a plugin or something I could use to do that, or is it impossible?

Hi Ben,

I'm afraid that's not possible to achieve using JIRA Cloud. There's an open improvement being tracked at: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-40609
