The "Clear Field Value" post function not available in my list of options?

Hello Community, 

I would like to zero out my remaining estimate once an issue is resolved and closed. I would do this by using the optional "Clear field value" post function on my transitions, but it is not available in my list of available post functions. Do you know why this might be? Must I pay for an app that does this. I was under the impression that it was an out of the box post function. Please share your thoughts. 

Kind regards, Brittany

You could use the "Update Issue Field" post function, which is there by default.  I believe that "Clear Field Value" is part of the JMWE addon.

Using "Update Issue Field" will allow you to set Remaining Estimate to 0.

Thank you Pete for your suggestion and support.

Hi @Brittany Woerner 


This postfunction is from the JSU Automation Suite for Jira Workflows :

You can download the plugin here 



Clear Field Value is a postfunction integrated in Jira.

Can you please tell me if you are using a Build in Workflow or a Custom one?

I am using a Custom workflow. 

And when you are click the Add Postfunction you cannot see:clear.PNG

Correct, that option is not available. 

Is the Update Issue Field available?  Use that as per my answer below.
