If the estimation of the subtasks are sum with the parent task in the velocity?

For example, when I have a parent task with 2 subtasks. Each subtask I estimate for 2 and 3 days. The parent task I add 5 days (this is the total est of 2 subtasks). Then, when I check the velocity, if Jira sum the estimation of both the parent task and subtasks to 10 days?

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

No.  Velocity does not look at the estimates on non-sprint items.  Sub-tasks are a part of their parent story, not sprint items.

For Scrum (and hence velocity calculations), you do not put estimates on sub-tasks.  Jira won't work if you do that.

I got that, thank you so much
