Estimation time roll up

Hello All

I have created a Story01.

For this story, we have created below three subtask

1. Design

2. Coding

3. testing

Now, as we can not create another level subtask to these, I have created child tasks for above subtasks as below

Story01         (Main story)

1. Design       (Subtask of main story)

       a. Task01   ( Child of subtask)

       b. Task02    ( child of subtask)

2. Coding

     a. Task001

     b. Task002

3. Testing

     a. Task1

     b. Task2

 

When we log our efforts in child tasks, these are not reflecting in subtask and in story.

How can I  roll up such logged efforts till story?

I am not quite sure what you are actually doing here. 

You can't create sub-tasks of sub-tasks, you are not doing

  • Story01         (Main story)
    • Design       (Subtask of main story)
      • Task01   ( Child of subtask)
      • Task02    ( child of subtask)

Do you mean you are doing something like linking the issues?  So you really have

  • Story01         (Main story)
    • Design       (Subtask of main story)
  • Task01   ( another issue with a link to the Design sub-task)
  • Task02    ( another issue with a link to the Design sub-task)

Is that what you mean?

Hello Nic

Yes, you understand it correctly. 
Task01 is an another issue which I linked to Design sub task.

Now if I log some efforts in Task01, Can it be reflected in my sub task Design?

 

In other words, Can a child tasks efforts roll up in parent task? if we map this relationship using JIRA field "Linked issues" with value 'is child of' and 'is parent of'. 

So I would start by renaming the link types - they're misleading you and your users, this is not a parent/child relationship.

You will then need to write some code that can read links, following them to the other end to look at the linked issue and update its fields if you add or change relevant data on an issue.

If you choose to use Scriptrunner to do this, there's an example of a similar script over at https://library.adaptavist.com/entity/calculate-the-sum-of-all-values-of-a-custom-field-in-linked-issues

Many Thanks for guiding me Nic!!

I will check with our Admins regarding it.
