How to compare the values of ∑timespent and ∑originalestimate in jql



I know issueFunction in Expression("", "Timespent>originalEstimate") gives it.

However my need is different.

We in our project are not having Original Estimates done at Issue level, however we do it at subtask level.

The subtask estimates rollup to the parent and would be shown using ∑Timespent (sum of Actuals) and ∑originalEstimate (sum of Planned)

Above ex - A is my main issue and A1 and A2 are subtasks with estimates against and no estimates at A.

So i wanted to compare something like below.

issueFunction in Expression("", "∑Timespent>∑originalEstimate")

Hi @sudha 

JQL is used to get you issues based on your query. And that's all it does. It can't compare fields. My advice would be either to export your results in excel and do it on your own, or to search for an app in the markeplace.

A shame you cannot query aggregate indicators, like ∑Timespent, although you can have it as a column in the results :(
