Story Points Aggregation Append To Parent Story Points

Patrick Hendry April 17, 2024


Story A is created for a developer. Developer says it's 10 story points.

Automation rule runs on story creation and creates subtask for QA. QA says it's 5 story points.

Desired end goal:

Story A's story points would aggregate to 15. 10 for the developer + 5 from QA subtask.

Currently the following clears the parent story point and replaces the parent task with the subtask story points, rather than appending/adding to the existing parent story points:

{{issue.parent.Story Points}} + {{issue.subtasks.Story Points.sum}}
The following also throws an error in Jira automation:

{{issue.parent.Story Points.asNumber() + issue.subtasks.Story Points.sum}}

Hello @Patrick Hendry 

When asking for help with an Automation rule that is not working correctly it will help us help you if you provide us with screen images of the entire rule and the details of each step, as well as the details of the Audit Log.

Additionally a very useful debugging tool is the Log action. You can use it to print out text and smart values into the rule audit log to verify that the smart values have the values you expect.
