Get timetracking remaining estimate through API (and not SUM of remaining estimate)

As defined in the API doc, it is possible to get the remaining estimate by doing a "get issue" (see

However, this remaining estimate is actually the sum of the remaining estimates (including the issue and its children). 

Is there a way to get the remaining estimate of the querried ticket only?

Hi @Thibault Clavier

I tried to execute this rest call and what i got was actually the  remaining estimate of the issue and not including the subtask values. I cross verified it with multiple issues. Could you check from your end?

"timetracking": {
"originalEstimate": "2d 5h",
"remainingEstimate": "2d 5h",
"originalEstimateSeconds": 75600,
"remainingEstimateSeconds": 75600

Hello Fazila,

Thank you for your feedback. I re-checked with different data and it does indeed the work as expected...

I will investigate what happened.


Is there a way to get the remaining estimate and to include the children for a Story? without needing to iterate over each children ?
