Is there way to roll up old work log into EPIC ?

Hello All 

Greetings !!! 

I Have one question to ask mentioned below. 


I have one EPIC , which has multiple user-story, and all the user-story have some work logged. 

Now I created one automation that logged the work into epic but that worked only for the worklog which I modified after this automation.

So the ask is how I rolled-up the old worklog into parent EPIC.

Let's understand by an example.

I have one Epic X , which has 2 userstory in it.

1 userstory logged worked 10 hrs 

2 userstory logged work 8 .

Now I enable the automation, after the 

I added 10 hrs logged work in 1 user story and 10 into 2 user story, now in the EPIC its showing only 20 but ideally I want it should show 38 .


Can some one help how can I achieve this buy automation?

Your rule only performs the Log Work action when new work is logged on a Story, Task or Bug.

The original 10 and 8 hours that were on the two Stories before you turned on this rule will not matter to this rule.

The time you logged on the Stories after you enabled the rule worked fine, so your rule is working as implemented. But only newly logged time will get accumulated to the Epic. Previously entered time will not.

You could create a different rule to go through everything and "initialize" your Epics with a total of all the time logged to their child Stories. You'd run that rule once to get the original 18 hours into the Epic. Then your new rule will handle time logged after that.
