Sum Story Points to Epic

Is there any way to get the story points summarized into a custom field and applied to the Epic that they are attached to? For example...

I have epic TEST-1

Stories TEST-2 and TEST-3 each are assigned to epic TEST-1, and each have 7 points assigned to them.

When I view TEST-1, I'd like to have a custom field that shows me there are 14 points within that Epic.

I think the plugin "Epic Sum Up" is exactly what you need!

Can we get the Epic Sum up field in the issue navigator to get excel report?

Hello Briley,

I believe that you can use the "Calculated Number Field" of JIRA Misc Custom Fields Plugin. Please find on the link below more details about the usage of it:

And the link for downloading the plugin:


This was my original thought - however from what I understand if we're using the Epic/Theme field to put the Epic key in (instead of actually linking the Epics to stories) this may not work.

Are you aware of a formula that I could use where the Epic/Theme field can be used? For example, if stories TEST-2 and TEST-3 were both flagged with 'TEST-1' in the Epic/Theme field.

Anyone any idea on the formula you would need to write for summing story points of user stories to the calculated number field for an epic? and is it possible to then use that field in a dashboard in Confluence?



This plugin is no longer supported for JIRA cloud, does anyone know of an alternative?
