Code - you'll need to find or write a listener that can detect changes on subtasks and apply whatever your adding up scheme is to the parents.

Hey everyone,

we are working with Time tracking method for sub-tasks..


is it possible in some way that once the team inserts the time estimations to their sub-tasks that the story points (of the story) will get updated accordingly?


Many thanks.



Thanks Nic.


I can ask one of our developers to write that code, is that even applicable ?

where is that supported in JIRA?



You need to find or write an add-on to provide the listener, or take advantage of something like the script-runner add-on which allows you to write code for listeners inside the JIRA UI.
