How can I sum the storypoints from subtasks to the issue


I am dutch, so my english is a bit sloppy...

Okey, I've made my first Jira Project with my team.

We have:
Issues, and 'onderliggende issues' (subtasks)

I would like to sum the story points of the subtasks in the issues.


It simply won't work. 

For the automation see the picture.

Rule is this

Hi @Klaas van der Hoeven , this is an often discussed topic in the community. In fact I found this post that I had seen earlier and I believe it does a good job of explaining things so I wanted to share it here - Summarizing-story-points-from-sub-tasks-in-parent-task . In this post Earl does a great job of explaining how Time estimation is summed natively. Then Sarvesh references the article on automation solution for summing the SP of sub-tasks - New-automation-smart-values-in-Jira-Cloud 

please have a read of these posts and see if that gets you further towards your goal. Please don't hesitate to come back here with questions.
