I apologize in advance, if this is a question that keeps getting asked. I have researched and see this has been asked, but in earlier versions of JIRA, so hopefully it is resolved in the newest version.
My company uses three levels: Epic, User Story, Subtasks.
At the User Story level, we use Story Points. In our case, they are not directly related to hours. The Story Points are a relative measure of Complexity and Effort.
Then below the User Story, the team creates Subtasks under each User Story. These are the tasks that need to be completed for a User Story to be done. And these tasks are estimated by number of hours to complete.
I am looking for a Burndown report that has the total, combined number of hours of subtasks on the Y axis and the days of the Sprint on the X axis.
Team Foundation Server had this feature and it was EXTREMELY helpful.
Thank you in advance for any suggestions/assistance!
Yes, it absolutely does sum them up. You can click on the button to toggle the parent's view between "this issue" and "this issue and sum of all sub-tasks" in the main issue view.
However, that is only done in the issue display, and in the issue navigator when you use the "sigma" fields to display the sums.
Jira Software however, is written to look at estimates on stories, not their sub-tasks. So you should not expect to estimate and burn-down on sub-tasks.
