Summed total hours from linked issues



I have a question regarding summed hours from an issue type to another.

To be more specific we have an issue-type (from a project) and there we link another issue-types from other project where we put time logged for each one.


I need a field that sum up the time for all the time spent on the linked issues, if we choose the custom field type “(Epic Sum Up) Summed and current Epic Sum Up information” it will work in our case?



Please let me know,

Thank you !



Best regards,

if the issue is an Epic, it should work. I'm not absolutely sure, but I this app works with Epics only.

Hello @Bastian Stehmann 

Unfortunately the issue is not an Epic issue-type.

I think it does not work then, but it is some time ago since I tried that app. So you can try the app for free. Just try it if works or not.

I'll try to see if it works, thank you for your fast feedback.
