When calculating the Unestimated issues metric, the Progress (story points) field takes into account standard issues and sub-tasks.
In the example below, you can see that I have three standard issues under the Test Epic 1. All three have been estimated. And yet the Unestimated Issues field indicates I still have 3 unestimated issues.
One of the unestimated issues is the epic itself. The other two are unestimated sub-tasks under Test Story #1.
Almost every team I've worked with estimates product backlog items but not sub-tasks, so it's very unfortunate those are factored into the Unestimated issues metric. Is there a method to remove sub-tasks from being calculated in this metric?
Also, it seems like the Unestimated issues may just be buggy given that the Progress (issues) field only shows 3 issues. It does not factor in the epic itself or sub-tasks, which is how I would expect a progress metric to be calculated given that's how 90%+ of teams work.
