Roll up Story Points and Time (actual) to Initiatives

In my JIRA project, we have the following issue hierarchy:

Sub-tasks > Stories > Epics > Initiatives


Most of our estimates and tracking happen at the Story level:

  • Story Points are recorded on Stories
  • Time estimates are recorded on Stories or Sub-tasks

I am hoping to run some reports aggregating up the Initiative level, to report on story points per initiative (per time frame) and actual time spent.   Would love any advice or recommendations on how to do that!

Benj - Did you ever get an answer?  I am looking to do the same thing and would love to hear any suggestions that worked.

I was looking for an answer also. 

The best I could find so far was to use the Portfolio view, and in it, use/show one of the Estimates columns. In the portfolio view, the times will add up to all levels of the hierarchy.

If somebody has a better answer please share!
