'JIRA Issue/Filter' macro - Time Spent vs Time Spent Aggregate


I am using the 'JIRA Issue/Filter' macro in confluence to give product managers visibility over projects' progress at requirement/story level. Part of what I want to show them is the time spent on each issue/strory/requirement making up the project. The 'JIRA Issue/Filter' macro gives me 2 options to achieve this i.e. the 'Time Spent' and the 'Time Spent aggregate' fields, but I found that neither of those work exactly how I want:

Time Spent: Does not show time spent on sub tasks - which is a requirement for me.

Time Spent Aggregate: Aggregates time spent on main issue and all its sub tasks (perfect!)... except that if the issue does not have any sub tasks, then the Time Spent Aggregate shows that no time has been spent even if there was time spent on the main issue?

Thanks in advance for your help.

No one else has encountered this issue? Or am I missing something maybe?

I have encountered this issue. Would like to have a solution for this. Not good that JIRA and JIRA filters in Confluence behaves different.
