Managing Risk Formulas
Overview
DATA CENTER ONLY
A Risk Formula provides easeRisk for Jira with the information it needs to calculate risk fields based on mathematical expressions applied to other risk fields. For example, the field Risk Exposure could be calculated as the value of Risk Impact multiplied by Risk Probability, as explained in How to Configure Jira and easeRisk for Jira for Risk Management. A Risk Formula can be associated with one or more Risk Schemes.
Once a Risk Formula is associated with a Risk Scheme, the formulaâ€™s Target Field is automatically set as follows:
For all issues in the projects associated with the Risk Scheme where the issue type is a member of the formulaâ€™s Issue Types option.
Whenever the value of a field used in the Formula option changes.
To manage risk formulas:
Go to Jira navigation > Risks > Formulas under Administration.
Options
Name | A unique name to identify the formula. |
---|---|
Target Field | The field in which the calculated value is saved. To prevent users from inadvertently modifying this field manually, it should be removed from any edit screens in projects using the formula. |
Issue Types | The issue types for which the formula is calculated. |
Formula | An expression that includes mathematical expressions and Jira fields. The fields in the formula are entered between square brackets - for example: Typing a left bracket "[" returns the Jira fields that match the characters that follow.

---|---|---|
Create a new formula |
| Â |
Associate a formula with a Risk Scheme |
| After a formula is associated with a Risk Scheme, the target field of any existing issues is not automatically recalculated. To do so, you must select Re-calculate. |
Edit a formula |
| After a formula is updated, the target field of any existing issues is not automatically recalculated.. To do so, you must select Re-calculate. |
Delete a formula |
| Only Formulas that are not associated with a Risk Scheme can be deleted. |
Re-calculate the target field of existing issues |
| Only Formulas associated with a Risk Scheme can be recalculated. The recalculation can take several minutes, depending on the number of issues. At the end of the process you have the opportunity to download an error log. |
