At present on my JIRA instance the time tracking settings is set to 1 day = 24 hours.
Which means, for an issue (original estimate of 1 working day) if someone logs work for 8 hours (which is effectively one working day), the system still displays 16 hours in remaining hours.
I understand that the fix is to go to time tracking and amend the setting to 1 day = 8 hours. But, if I do that the system screws up the original estimates for all issues.
If I make this change an old issue (with an earlier original estimate of 3 days) after the change now starts showing an original estimate of 9 days (since the esimate is stored in seconds and was earlier divided by 24 to get days but now is getting divided by 8 and hence tripled).
How do i get round this problem?
I have checked the option of jelly scripts and I could not find a solution using jelly.
Any ideas guys?
The default in JIRA to my knowledge has always been 8 hours, so at somepoint someone changed it to 24.
You would have to use the issue navigator to target all issues with an estimate > 8 hours estimated during the window when it was changed, and re-estimate those tasks.
You could most like do this with a jelly script, or an external script using the REST interface.
I understand it may not be the magic bullet you were looking for, but I am not aware of any other way.
