How to get estimate for issuesin Portfolio as sum total of remaining estimate for parent issues and sub-tasks



I just found out that issues imported in portfolio have estimate as remaining estimate for parent issues.

In the board plan mode as well the estimate field just shows original estimate for parent issues(excludes for sub-tasks).But using script runner i managed to get thgis estimate field display the total original estimate for parent issues and sub-tasks. However remaining estimate field shows correctly for parent issues as it shows as sum of the value for parent and sub-tasks. Now when we import issues in portfolio, we still see that estimate column shows only remaining estimate for parent issues and excludes for its sub-tasks.

Could you pleas help me implement something to resolve this.

Hi @ashley giles,

I think it might be worth to open a ticket under the following project so that we can investigate this issue further:


Hi Alejo, I did that. Thanks for your help. BR, Ashley

I'm not sure this is a bug in Script Runner, it sounds more like an issue with Portfolio.

Hi Jamie, i didn't mean this is a bug. All that i need is can i have my portfolio plugin configured in such a way that it displays under estimate column for imported issues, the total remaining estimate rolled upto sub-tasks. Currently it does only for parent issues. If i could get this implemented someway then it would help a great deal in reporting through portfolio. Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated. BR, Ashley

Hi Ashey... sorry, I'm not familiar with Portfolio plugin.

With the plugin "Epic Sum Up" you have some nice time feature (estimated, worked, over estimated, won time, ...) for an epic within all the sub issues/sub tasks:
Hope it helps you!

Hi Steffen, Is it possibe somehow for estimate column under portfolio to display remaining estimate rolled upto sub-tasks for the stories because when we import stories into portfolio then we can see that it displays estimate only for parent story and excludes for its corresponding sub-tasks, that makes reporting incorrect. We don't want yet another plugin for this but if some script or configuration changes can be done in portfolio set up in our jira that could help achieve this then that would be great. Looking forward to response from you. BR, Ashley
