Hi Nader,

Unfortunately, JIRA Agile does not take into account sub-tasks' points/estimates in Plan mode. In this mode, you need to plan points/estimates based on standard issues, which are visible on the backlog/sprints. Sub-tasks are invisible and not used for planning. You may refer to this blog for more information on why JIRA Agile is implemented this way.
