Linkage between remaining effort of parent story and its sub tasks

Hi,

 

Hi. I have created a story and created 5 sub tasks under it. So, when I add efforts to those sub tasks, does the original estimation field of the parent story get updated with the sum of the efforts of the sub tasks? 

 

For an example - 

I am creating a parent story as "X", and adding 5 sub tasks with below efforts

x.1 - 2h

x.2 - 4h

x.3 - 2h

x.4 - 1h

x.5 - 6h

 

So, after adding these efforts to sub tasks, will the original estimation field of the parent task get updated as 15h?

 

Cheers,

Hansi

I am using Jira Server (v8.5) and this does work.  There is a checkbox on the Story under the Time Tracking section to "Include sub-tasks".  See screenshot:

Hi Pete, 

Thanks a lot for getting back to me. I am using the cloud version, I couldn't find "Include Sub Tasks" check box in time tracking section. Is there any specific way to set-up jira cloud version to add effort of sub tasks to parent story? Really appreciate your support on this

Cheers,

Hansi

Apparently it's a bug in the "New Issue View".  See here:

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRACLOUD-69587

But you should be able to switch the new view off:
