Epic & Story time-tracking roll-up Edited

Hi, We are using Epics, Stories and Sub-tasks in our classic Jira project and the hierarchy is defined as below

1. Epic - Parent initiative

2. Story, Bug and Task - Child development tasks - 1 item is completed in one sprint.

3. Sub-tasks - other tasks and tracking isn't required. 

The estimates are being done at a story level. 

Is there a way that story, bug, task estimates can roll-up to parent Epic?

Hi @Saima.gul 

Yes. I suggest you use portfolio for Jira all of your estimation roll up.

Thanks @Ashkan_Malekly
We have tested portfolio and it's great, but I'm looking for something simpler. 

Hi @Saima.gul

You can give a try to Panorama (or the lite version which is free). It roll-up not only story points but any numeric fields you have (like cost, a logged time, etc.).


Thanks @Arkadiusz Głowacki , will try the lite version of Panorama. 

@Saima.gul , did you get a solution. I have Jira, Jira for Portfolio and EasyBI installed. I want to see the hours roll-up in Jira for all my Epics. My team logs their time against the Stories, Tasks, et and not the Epic. I need the roll-up hours to show up in EasyBI. Let me know if you found a solution.

Hi All,

If you would be interested in a ready made solution, you may want to try out our add-on to manage multiple Epics and their hierarchy on a single page.

Epic Hierarchy is made available on Epic Issue screen as well by the add-on
