Original and Time Remaining not rolling up to Epic

Hello,

We are seeing issues with estimates being rolled up to the parent issue. I do not see the estimates neither in original / time remaining estimates field nor in their auto sum fields.

Scenario:

  1. Sub tasks are estimated and developers log work on those issues. Time tracking field is showing appropriate original and remaining estimates.
  2. Sub tasks are estimated and linked Stories are estimated. Time tracking field in Story is showing estimates (Original and Remaining) that are added to the issue and not summing up from child issue (Sub task in this case).
  3. Tasks are estimated and linked Epics are estimated. Time tracking field in Epic is showing estimates (Original and Remaining) that are added to the epic issue and not summing up from child issue (Task in this case).
  4. Sub tasks are estimated, linked Stories are estimated and linked Epics are not estimated. Time tracking field in Epic is not showing any estimates (Original and Remaining) by summing up from child issue (Story and Sub task in this case). Instead shows only those estimates that were if added to Epic directly.

I have checked Time Tracking field is added to the screens. Board configuration has radio button Original and Time Remaining selected.

Please advise.

Thanks
Sunil M.

Why hasn't this been answered yet? This seems like a no brainer yet it's not implemented?

It looks like people are using Structure and other plug-ins to get reasonable roll-up behavior out of JIRA.
