Description

My company wants to score issues on a issue level rather than a project level. In order to do so we'd like a custom field that can be a calculation based on other issue fields. For example, we could have a custom field called score that would be a sum of priority * custom field priority_weight + time_estimate * custom field time_est_weight + custom field risk * custom field risk_weight + custom filed income_potential * custom field income_potential_weight, where weight would be some number between -10 and 10.

Adding custom fields that allowed calculation would give us the flexibility to do this. The field could be something like a formula field in a google doc spreadsheet. ie: my_custom_field = if(est_time > 3, 10, 5)*est_time_weight

That might be a lot to do, but it would be the ultimate in flexibility. All we need is simple addition/subtraction and multiplication. Although multiplying times "severity" field might be hard if it isn't an integer already.

Is it possible to sponsor work? If so, how much does it cost? (I ask without yet having the boss's approval mind you).

Support the motion. In my company something very similar is needed: a field priority, which is calculated from the issue's "business_value" and "development_effort" ie priority is highest when business value is greatest and development_effort is lowest, and vice-versa.

We would need it to. I just wanted to create a new Issue for this, but I found this one here.
Could a developer of redmine please post some opinions or informations about this?
If we would know more about it and redmine internals we even would be able to contribute to redmine project.

I made a plugin with similar functionality. You can try it https://www.redmine.org/plugins/computed_custom_field

This sounds great.
Would there be the possibility to include standard fields (like estimated work, remaining work) from Redmine objects (trackers, users, projects) in the calculation? Or do you support custom fields only for now?

Ingo

I have tested it and I like it. It is simple and does work very well. The only nuisance is that computed custom field is editable when adding or editing issues. I thing the views\issues\_form_custom_field.html.rb should be adjusted to not render computed custom fields. As a workaround, the computed field can be set as read only using workflow permissions.

I would vote for adding this to Redmine core! This is very small change but it gives huge possibilities.

Can you convert it into patch and add tests? It would be easier to convince JPL to include it :)

It is possiblle to use standart methods and fields of objects, for example a formula of Issue CF:

(self.estimated_hours || 0) * 2

Thank you for your note. The plugin is still in development. Maybe patch and test would be later.

yakov aanikov: https://www.redmine.org/plugins/computed_custom_field - This project is no longer maintained - compatible with Redmine 4.0.x, and what about Redmine 4.1?

This feature is very needed.
