Jira Automation: Sum Up Story Points Roundup (Initiatives -> Epics -> Story/Tasks -> Subtasks)

Hi Everyone,

In this roundup we combine all the jira automation rules to sum up story points across different issue types.

We start from the lowest level, summing up story points from sub-tasks to Stories.  Then, we have multiple rules where you can sum up story points from stories linked to an Epic through the Epic Link field. Finally, we sum up the story points from epics to an initiative via a link relationship.

Great if all work in 1 project any recommendations if epic is in Proj X and Issue only live in one of 5 projects?

This configuration is working for us, to avoid the costs of premium, Align or other apps, but that comes w/some manual processes.  

I need to point out that you need to be very careful with doing this.  There are two points.

First, you are assuming that story points are all used the same way by every team.  That is, you can rely on 1 story point meaning the same to Team ABC as it does for Team XYZ.  

Second, you mention rolling up from sub-tasks.  This means you can not set your Scrum boards to use Story Points as the estimate - sub-tasks are wholly a part of their parent issues, and you'll break all your Scrum reporting by double-counting it.
