There has been lots of discussion and opinion around this, but I'm looking for a simple answer: under what condition will subtask estimates be rolled up to their parent tasks? Is this available only for the "Original Estimate" field? We are using a field called Development Estimate, and have it defined as our Estimation Statistic in our board configuration. If I leave the estimate on a task empty, but estimate the subtasks, the Development Estimate in the parent task remains blank. I am hoping to find a way to show estimate roll-ups.
See this discussion for a detailed discussion arounf GH estimates on sub-tasks, and what will and will-not roll up https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/84349/rapid-board-time-estimates-with-sub-tasks
In short I would say no, your custom field won't roll up.
This also seems to be an exact duplicate of https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/143647/estimates-not-rolling-up-to-parent
