Original Estimate doesn't appear to roll up from subtasks?

My team are breaking out tasks into subtasks, and adding original estimates to those subtasks. However the parent task does not seem to roll up these and display it on the parent task.


Is there away to have Jira Cloud roll up the original estimate to the parent task?

I tried to confirm roll-up of "Original estimate" from Subtasks to parent Story, but could not. In my case, it might have to do with our Tempo Timesheet app which takes over as the Time Tracking Provider.

Automation recently added some subtask-spanning math functions that solve these sorts of problems:

Thanks that looks good, but the possibility of an additional plugin may not be possible,

Automation is built-in to Jira Cloud now.

Welcome to the Community!

When that "include sub-tasks" is set, then it should be rolling them up.  Are you sure the sub-tasks for this story have original estimates?

Yes, all have estimates
