How can I update a custom numerical field from sub-tasks to parent

I'm using Jira cloud, Next gen.

I would like to create automation rule for updating a parent custom field from sum of sub-tasks custom field.

To be more specific - 
I created a numeric custom field for "Story points estimate" that is used in all issue types.

I would like to reflect the sum of all the sub-tasks story points in the parent issue.

How can I do that?
