calculate the workload of an epic

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Configuring Estimation and Tracking

Is it possible to calculate the total estimated work and the total logged work for an epic containing issues which have sub-issues?

Yes.... Let me dig out a script

Using Scriptrunner 



CustomField = EPIC Total Time Spent which shows on an EPIC the total time spent across linked issues (Stories & subtasks)

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager

import java.text.DecimalFormat

def componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance()
def issueLinkManager = componentManager.getIssueLinkManager()

def totalTimeSpent = 0.0d

def epicTimeSpent = issue.timeSpent
if(epicTimeSpent) {
totalTimeSpent += epicTimeSpent

if(issue.getSubTaskObjects() != []) {
issue.getSubTaskObjects().each {epicSubTask ->
def epicSubTaskTimeSpent = epicSubTask.timeSpent
if(epicSubTaskTimeSpent) {
totalTimeSpent += epicSubTaskTimeSpent

if(issueLinkManager.getOutwardLinks( != []) {
issueLinkManager.getOutwardLinks( {issueLink ->
if ( == "Epic-Story Link") {
def linkedIssue = issueLink.destinationObject
def linkedIssueTimeSpent = linkedIssue.timeSpent
if(linkedIssueTimeSpent) {
totalTimeSpent += linkedIssueTimeSpent

//if(linkedIssue.getSubTaskObjects().size > 0) {
if(linkedIssue.getSubTaskObjects() != []) {
linkedIssue.getSubTaskObjects().each {linkedIssueSubTask ->
def linkedIssueSubTaskTimeSpent = linkedIssueSubTask.timeSpent
if(linkedIssueSubTaskTimeSpent) {
totalTimeSpent += linkedIssueSubTaskTimeSpent

if(totalTimeSpent > 0) {
totalTimeSpent = totalTimeSpent / 60.0d / 60.0d / 8.0d //Seconds to Hours

//formatNumber(number: totalTimeSpent, Locale.ENGLISH, format: '##0.0')
//new DecimalFormat("#.#").format(totalTimeSpent);


Just amend it for Total Estimation of time...

Thank you for your quick reply. I will have a go, after installing the script runner which we do not have.

Epic SumUp can do this. You cannot do this natively out of the box.
