Sum up hours spent against an epic and any child tasks and sub-tasks in eazyBI


Please can you help?

I need a a single calculated field to work as follows.....

If I have an issue that is an epic I to sum the total hours logged against that epic or any issue attributed to the epic

If the issue is not an epic I want it to sum the total hours logged against the issue of any children

If think this (below) could achieve the latter - but I'm not really sure how to deal with the epic and how to glue it all together into a single calculated member.

Descendants([Issue].CurrentMember, [Issue].[Issue]),
[Measures].[Hours spent with sub-tasks] > 0 
), [Measures].[Hours spent with sub-tasks])

Well.....I came up with the following - but not sure it works in all cases or is best practice.....


CASE WHEN [Measures].[Issue type] = 'Epic' THEN
  Descendants([Issue].CurrentMember, [Issue].[Issue]),
    [Epic Link].[Epic].Members.Item([Issue].CurrentMember.Name),
    [Measures].[Hours Spent]
  [Measures].[Hours spent with sub-tasks]
