Need to add up all child issues original estimate to parent original estimate.
I have tried many ways join, sum, divide/60 even web request to get all child issues where original estimate is not empty but it is not performing sum returning empty expression.
Can refer the below snap for more clarity.
Let me know for any workaround for this.
Thanks in advance.
Thanks, Darryl. I frequently forget that one for sub-tasks and end up "re-inventing the wheel" :^)
You do not show in your rule what you are using to sum up the values, so would you please show that and show an image of your audit log from an execution that does not work as expected?
And you may want to look at these two posts, showing ways to do this for parent/children with and without sub-tasks involved:
Hello @Bill Sheboy ,
Rule is working fine, have referred the article which you have shared where I'm using advanced section for aggregation of all child's original estimate to parent.
Just wanted to know if my parent issue is not an Epic type, so in that scenario what we are suppose to use. I have tried "For Parent" as branch option but it is not considering the parent and I guess it is only for subtask issues, can refer the below snap.
Can consider child issues are of "Bug,New Feature,Improvement,Task" type and parent is also one of them, do we have any branch to get the parent issue of all those child or with smart values can we find out.
Thanks for the help!!
One thing to note is what type of project and what type of "parent" you have.
For company-managed projects, epics use the epic link to connect to child issues (story, task, bug). For team-managed projects, epics connect by parent. The branches should work for both. For story/task/bug to sub-tasks, that uses that type of parent/child relationship.
Yes, I have found the solution and implemented, it's working.
I'm attaching the snap of my rule, can refer.
Whenever the field value changes for Timetracking (Original estimate, time spent etc) the rule will get triggered, then triggered issue (child) will find the parent issue using the Linked issue branch component and will send the web request to get all child issues and their fields and at last adding of all original estimates of childs to parent through smart values.
And in Send web request, the following URL have been used.
Can try and let me know it works or not.
You have to use this below link
id:password encrypt it and use it.
And then add component Edit issue field where you can put for sum up the estimation in advance section, can refer previous screenshot.
