Total of all project role based estimates to system "original estimate" field


The plugin documentation (v 1.0.7) states the following on page 26:

"The issues overall Original / Remaining estimates will be a total of all Project Role Specific estimates"

However, in my case the original / remaining estimate fields (the system fields provided by JIRA) remain unpopulated (null) after role-based estimations are saved. How is it possible to acheive that whenever a role-based estimate is set/changed that this change is reflected in the system original estimate field? Just to note, if I manually set the system original estimate field to the total of role-based estimates, it's saved normally.

Hi Vedran,

We have been working on this and trying to replicate it for a while now, without any success. We will continue that, but may be we are missing here something, which might be a difference between yours and ours environment, or may be a third party plugin.

If you could keep an eye on your log file at the point of time when you face this issue, for anything odd (NPE etc) related to our plugin, that could be very helpful.



Hi Abhinav,

This issue was replicated by Steven Hensgen (see

I'd be happy to assist in helping to replicate this issue, just let me know. The issue still exists on our production JIRA instance.
