is there any way to set an original estimate on an issue without editing the issue.

is there any way to set an original estimate on an issue without editing the issue.

Typically we will do a bug review each week. each issue can be edited inline with a fix version and an assignee this is great , however i cannot set an estimate inline.

i have to select edit to specify an estimate

One posibillity to to this is to exceute the following script in the Groovy ScriptRunner's console:

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue;
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;
                
void setEstimateToNull(String key)
{
	IssueManager im = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager();
        MutableIssue issue = im.getIssueObject(key);
        issue.setOriginalEstimate(0L);
        issue.store();
}

setEstimatetoNull("your Issue Key ");
setEstimatetoNull("annother Issue Key ");

Hi Julian
