Hello @Tomasz Swiniarski 

Jira does not automatically roll up time spent from child issues to Epics. If you want that done you would need to create an Automation Rule to do it.

The native aggregate field for Time Spent does not appear to be a field that can be directly editing in an issue through Automation. It seems the only way to edit it is through the Work Log function.

So, to roll up the time spent on child issues to the parent task you would need to either:

1. Use automation to Log Work against the parent Epic each time work is logged against a child issue, or

2. Use automation to Log Work against the parent Epic just one time, perhaps when all the child issues are set to Done and the Epic is closed.

Hi @Tomasz Swiniarski ,

I can recommend the Cost Tracker for Jira Cloud app for time reports.

You can also make informative cost reports in the add-on and estimate the time spent on an epic and its cost.

For example, we described in the article how you can estimate the cost of a sprint.

My company developed the app. Here is a 30-day trial to see if the app is right for you. In addition, Cost Tracker is free for teams of up to 10 users.

Hello @Tomasz Swiniarski 

You may want to try the Clockwork Automated Time Tracking & Timesheets Pro App.

Clockwork allows you to view the total time spent for all Child Issues of an Epic and other Issue Types.

This total time is visible right on the Issue panel, as shown:


All you need to do is click on the tree icon as shown above and you have this information.

If you would like to discuss more about Clockwork's capabilities, you can reach out to the team here.

Hi @Tomasz Swiniarski,


You can consider the Worklogs - Time Tracking and Reports app that allows you to monitor the tracking time for Epics and other issues. Please take a look:

The report is highly transparent and easy to read. In addition, you can always generate an Excel file based on the report. You have the flexibility to customize the report according to your specific requirements by applying various filters.

I encourage you to try our interactive demo to see if this is something that would meet your expectations.

We are also happy to answer any questions about our application. Feel free to contact us by going to this link.

Kind regards,
SolDevelo Team
