Sum doesnt sum?

Hey guys, need a little help as this is driving me crazy;

I have a simple code

sum{ if( issuetype = "feature";1;0)}


However, my structure does not want to sum this up correctly although its working on other structures. I have even gone as far as splitting the code out so its;

sum{features} and features is a variable>formula with the IF( issuetype = "feature";1;0)


Top line is the folder line, below are epics with epics and features underneath. Manually adding up that comes to 52 but my folder line shows 41. Its driving me nuts, anyhelp much appreciated.

Hi @Ian Porter 

Dmitrii with ALM Works here.

If understood correctly, you need to see the number of features in your folder. In this case this piece of your formula with "Sub over sub-items" option checked should be enough: 

if (issuetype = "feature"; 1)

You mentioned that you get 41 instead of 52. Could you confirm that you have 52 features? Looks like the epic with 11 features is not taken into account for some reason.

I'm also curious in the version of Structure that you're using.

I would recommend raising a support request for this by emailing us via We will want to review this particular structure's configuration more closely (you mentioned yourself that the formula is working in other structures).

Kind regards,

that works, amazing. Need to work out why original code isnt working here but is elsewhere. Thank you!
