JJUPIN SIL sum of hours from linked issues

I want to sum the hours of linked issues into the parent\grouping issue.  It seems like this should be pretty simple in SIL using a for-loop and adding each subordinate value to the running total.

I'm trying to use SIL to do this, but keep getting "illegal workflow operation" error.

I have three custom fields:  "Rsch Hrs", "Prog Hrs", "Test Hrs".

Here is the script

//reset the parent values to zero

key.#{Rsch Hrs} = 0;

key.#{Prog Hrs} = 0;

key.#{Test Hrs} = 0;

// add each of the subordinate linked issue values

string [] linkedIssues =  linkedIssues(key);

for (string issue in linkedIssues) {

    key.#{Rsch Hrs} += %issue%.#{Rsch Hrs};

    key.#{Prog Hrs} += %issue%.#{Prog Hrs};

    key.#{Test Hrs} += %issue%.#{Test Hrs};

}

Any advice?

Hi Carl,

If some of the linked issues have empty values for one of the custom fields, the sum between empty value and a number or an interval can't be calculated.So, if the custom field has empty value, you have to set the values of the custom fields to 0. You can use the script below:

//reset the parent values to zero
 
%key%.#{Rsch Hrs} = 0;
 
%key%.#{Prog Hrs} = 0;
 
%key%.#{Test Hrs} = 0;
 
// add each of the subordinate linked issue values
 
string [] linkedIssues =  linkedIssues(key);
 
for (string issue in linkedIssues) {
	if(%issue%.#{Rsch Hrs} == ""){
        %issue%.#{Rsch Hrs} = 0;
    } 
    if(%issue%.#{Prog Hrs} == ""){
        %issue%.#{Prog Hrs} = 0;
    }
    if(%issue%.#{Test Hrs} ==  ""){
        %issue%.#{Test Hrs} = 0;
    }
 
    %key%.#{Rsch Hrs} += %issue%.#{Rsch Hrs};
 
    %key%.#{Prog Hrs} += %issue%.#{Prog Hrs};
 
    %key%.#{Test Hrs} += %issue%.#{Test Hrs};
 
}

Thanks. Definitely makes the code more robust.

Hi Carl,

You should also use substitution for key. You code should look like this:

//reset the parent values to zero
%key%.#{Rsch Hrs} = 0;

%key%.#{Prog Hrs} = 0;

%key%.#{Test Hrs} = 0;

// add each of the subordinate linked issue values

string [] linkedIssues = linkedIssues(key);

for (string issue in linkedIssues) {

%key%.#{Rsch Hrs} += %issue%.#{Rsch Hrs};

%key%.#{Prog Hrs} += %issue%.#{Prog Hrs};

%key%.#{Test Hrs} += %issue%.#{Test Hrs};

 

Hope this helps,

Thanks. Replacing "key" with "%key%" made it work. This will be a big help
