How to sum up story points for initiative? Edited

Hi there, we recently upgraded to Premium with the idea to use Advanced Roadmaps.

I already created Initiative as a new issue type and configure its usage in hierarchy, so basically, we have at the moment





So far so good. 

The next thing I would like to achieve is to sum up story points (SP) from each Story way to to initiative.

From what I can figure out, this should be two step process:

1. Sum up all SP from all Stories within Epic

2. Sum up all Epic SP for each Initiative

Now, for #1, there is one useful link, which allows me to sum up SP for all stories within each Epic.

However, I stuck for #2. I have two bummers atm:

1. I cannot figure out how to show Story Points field on Initiative screen. I can see Story point estimate though

2. I cannot figure out how to amend the automated rule from above to make it sums up SP from Epics for each Initiative.

Hi @Angel Todorov 

I think a more robust way to go about summing up story point across different hierarchies is using ScriptRunner addon.

@Angel Todorov Are you on Jira Cloud Premium, or just cloud, or......??

Regardless, you would need to add the Story Point field to whatever Screen scheme the Initiative issue type is using (you need to be an Admin to do this).

Then, you should be able to sum up the story points from Epic to Initiative by using the lookup issues action and putting {{lookupIssues.Story Points.sum}}  into the Story point field of an Edit issue action.

We are on Jira Cloud Premium. Re Story Point field, actually all my issues are sharing the same Issue Screen, however unlike Story, Initiative, Task and Sub-task have only Story point estimate field.

So my question remains - how can I show Story Points field to Initiative, Task and Sub-task?
