Jira Automation Sum up story points when the field value changes not working

I have followed the examples almost exactly but the sum is not working.

I can see the rule fires, and the parent story points gets updated to 0.

Here is the rule you need. The Log Action components are not required.

Brilliant thanks that worked.

Glad I could help.

I suspect this has something to do with Epic Parent and subtasks not being found in the string  {{issue.subtasks.Story Points.sum}}. 


The stories are child issues of the Epic but maybe not specifically subtasks. I am trying to sum the child stories.
