Estimated Less Actual Duration is a calculated field representing the difference between the estimated time and the actual time it took to execute the script.
Two formats are supported:
The first allows you to provide a date in days, hours, minutes and seconds.
1 day, 3 hours, 15 minutes can be written as follows:
The second format allows you provide a more readable date specifying optional values for weeks, days, hours & minutes.
1 week, 2 days, 1 hour, 30 minutes can be written as follows:
Or in the shorthand form (familiar to JIRA/JQL users):
To find all runs where the the estimated less actual duration is within a range e.g.( 1-4 days):
Alternatively, you can use the short hand "range" syntax:
Find all runs where the actual duration has exceeded the estimated duration (i.e. the value is a negative number of minutes, hours, days):
Note: Because dates can contain hours, minutes and seconds, testing for date equality may not match as you would expect. It is suggested that you use Date Ranges for matching values where you are not sure of the exact time component.
