Is there an automation rule so that I can roll-up the work-time logged from the linked issues(child)

Hi team,

Is there any provision in Jira automation where we could roll up the time logged from linked issues to there parent issues.

For example: A Task is linked to another Task (both same issuetypes)with linking parent-child. I want to roll-up the time logged from child Task to parent Task.


-->Task A

-->Task A1, Task A2, Task A3 [child of Task A] 

---> Both parent and child issuetypes are same.

Thanking in advance for the help.

Minor correctional point on your language here - the issues you are talking about are not in a parent-child relationship, they are linked.  Parent-child relationships are not done with issue links in Jira, they are issue/sub-task or epic/issue fields.  You're not "rolling up" here, you are "adding up data from linked issues"

Issue/sub-task relationships already automatically sum their estimates up on to the parent issue, so if you were using those, you would not need to do this automation.

But, yes, you can automate this, you'll need an automation that triggers on every change of the time-tracking field, looks at the amended issue to get all the issues that are linked to it and update the issues that are at the other end of your "is parent of" type links
