How can I configure my project to roll up the story points from sub-tasks to the story level?

I have a story with say...10 sub-tasks.  Each of those sub-tasks has a story point estimation.  Is there a way to have JIRA automatically roll those sub-tasks story points up to the parent user story to the user story gets the sum of those story points logged against it?

Only by coding, and most of the approaches to doing it mess up your reports.

As Nic suggests, only through custom code.

A Listener could detect when subtasks are created/updated/deleted and sum the story points. The Listener could then set the value on the parent issue.

A Custom Field could be programmed to retrieve values from subtasks and sum when displaying the field.
