Subtask original estimates do not add to parent issue

I have a story with multiple sub tasks. Each sub task has a time estimate and when I view the story I can select "Include sub-tasks" to see the total time for the entire story but when I am in my backlog the badge next to that story is blank. 


Is there a way to have that badge display to cumulative estimates of all the subtasks for that story? (like it does on the main page)

Hi, please be aware that you have two "Original estimate" fields:

  • Original estimate
  • SUM(Original Estimate)

Just show this SUM(Original Estimate). It works e.g in list view.

If it is not this let me know I will find another solution.

 

I have the same issue.

Estimates of sub tasks are rolling up in parent, if user open detail of parent. My Question is why its not appearing in backlog / scrum board.

JIRA Software does not do anything with estimates on sub-tasks.  Plain JIRA rolls them up and displays the estimates and worklogs on parents, but they don't have any role in Software.

I cannot find the SUM(Original Estimate) in my available fields but I am not sure that would help. I am looking for the hours to appear in the badge (on the right hand side of the task) on my sprint backlog (I would attach a screenshot but I get an http error when uploading it to confluence).
