Many People use Epics as Project Context to break up the tasks and get in control.
What it does
With this plugin one can see the sum-up of time spent to the Epic, Subtasks and Issues inside the Epic as one value.
How I built it
IntelliJ IDEA and Atlassian connect API
Challenges I ran into
Server and Cloud addons are not directly compatible, but share a big part of logic. We wanted to find a way to be able to reuse most of the logic for the Server and Cloud Version. In addition we found it difficult to find a way to determine/check the Epic issue type within a WebPanel condition. It feels inaccurate to rely on a changeable name/icon.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Writing the first cloud addon.
What I learned
How JIRA Cloud plugins are working and their limitations.
What's next for Epic Sum Up - Free
Adding more fields, progress bars and make the addon more configurable
