How to Update Sum of Field on an Epic?

I was able to create automation to sum the Story Points on an epic. How do I create automation to update the sum if a story is deleted? I think I should be able to do so.

Hey there Sharon,

Unfortunately you can't do aggregation functions at the moment. Please vote for this issue

Hi Sharon,

Could you share how you were able to sum the Story Points on the EPIC? Thanks.


Hi Kara,

I am glad to share. This was the only tricky part -

{{issue.Story Points}}{{^issue.Story Points}}0{{/}} + {{fieldChange.fromString}}{{^fieldChange.fromString}}0{{/}} + {{fieldChange.toString}}{{^fieldChange.toString}}0{{/}}

Hi Sharon,

I'm very new to using JIRA.  Can you tell me how you got to the screen to setup this automation to begin with?  Thanks.



Hi Kara,

This functionality is from Code Barrel add on. It is not in Jira Software.
