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?
Sadly, this seems to be another miss by Atlassian.
On my Epic, I can see the time-tracking, with the "Include sub-tasks" checkbox checked, but the time tracking does not roll up. I get that Stories/Tasks/Bugs that are children of the Epic aren't technically "Sub-Task" issues, but this seem to just be a miss in the design of handling this roll-up for Epics. Is there a ticket for this for Jira Cloud? I'd vote for it.
In the meantime, the way to do this without having to add yet another add-on is to...
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
Manage and visualize your Epics with rolled up estimate progress reports.
@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.
