Our original story points field was a numeric field I had to type in. I created a new story points field and made it a drop down of the Fibonacci numbers. I then renamed the old to a new name story points (a) and named the new field to just story points. I thought I was good but now on the boards no point values will show or calculate with velocity. Is there something I am missing or do I just have to go back to my original field?
You can't make a post-function a listener. You would need to write your own listener or use a plugin that provided the functionality directly e.g. scriptrunner could help you write the listener.
I completely understand this requirement, since any Burndown Chart and Velocity calculation is useless as long as anyone can enter any value. This is why we created the brand new App "StoryPoints" for Jira Server.
It is dedicated to Fibonacci Estimation but supports any Selection Options via easy administration.
For details see here.
Our team added a custom listener using Scriptrunner for Points, which "rounded" up to the next number in the Fibonacci sequence, if the entered value was not a Fibonacci number. Solution was pretty simple and worked well. Members quickly learn to stop arguing about a 6 or 7, when the value automatically resets to 8.
I posted our code in a related discussion:
Remember that time you realized it was possible to refresh your Jira data in Google sheets with just one click? What if we told you that you can now get the latest data with no clicks at all?! Zero! ...
