Rollup original estimate at Sprint level

I'm evaluating Jira as an alternative to my current APM tool.


In this other APM tool it adds the "work effort estimates" of each issue / bug / task / subtask (Deliverable) assigned to Iteration (i.e., sprint). So we assign the issues / bugs et al, to all future iterations (sprint) in order to get a rough order of magnitude end date. I.e., the tool calculates 25hrs per week per programmer, to that's 100hrs of work per 2 week iteration for 2 programmers. So based on priority we move each the deliverables to the iterations until they all assigned and that gives us a rough delivery date. We've been doing this for 20yrs and it's never failed us.


1. Is there something similar in Jira?

2. Can I display the accumulated Original Estimates at the sprint level?


Thank you in advance for any responses!


Cheers, James

I am not sure you can do this in Jira without an add-on, but by using Structure you can achieve this, as shown here:


As you can see, you can group issues by Sprint and have a column that calculates the sum of original estimates per sprint.
