Can I use automateion to sum story point estimate field values from subtask to parent?

Just like summing story points to a parent I want to do the same thing with story point estimates.  for example if I have 3 subtasks for a story, each with story point estimate = 5. Then I want the parent story point estimate to show the sum of15.

@Thomas Sacco:

Check out this video tutorial on how to sum up subtask story points to a story:

You may have to use a separate customfield for the story points estimate if you don't have one already.  


Thanks Fabian, the video shows how to sum up story points, not story point estimates.

If you are in Cloud, you can use the original estimate custom field. You can modify the smart values to be {{lookupIssues.original estimate.sum}} instead of {{lookupIssues.Story Points.sum}}.


thank you Fabian I will give that a try

You can look into ScriptRunner, which can easily do this. The downside of things is that you will need to know how to write the script that will do it.

Im not familiar with scriptrunner yet.  Is there any guidance online?
