Hierarchy Question?

Hi all,
 
I am not sure if this falls under hierarchies, but I didn't manage to solve this that way. 
 
So I have this table:
 
IssueName of Parent IssueHours
A-1 1
A-2 2
B-1 3
B-2 4
B-3 5
B-22B-26
B-33B-37
C-1 8
D-1 9
E-1 10
 
The first column shows a list of Issues. However in reality B-22 and B-33 are sub tasks of B-2 and B-3 respectively (which are the Parent Issues).
 
So my question is that how can I create a hierarchy (or some other solution) where if I want to know the hours related to B-2 it will give me 10 (4+6) and for B-3 a result of 12 (5+7).
 
Thanks for your help
Jonas

You can create a mapping table like below and create relationship with your table, and then below mapping table will work like Level1 and Level2. Hope this helps.

 

Issue Name of Parent Issue
A-1 A-1
A-2 A-2
B-1 B-1
B-2 B-2
B-3 B-3
B-22 B-2
B-33 B-3
C-1 C-1
D-1 D-1
E-1 E-1

or, if you dont want to go that route; this measure should give you what you want:

TotalHours = 
var currentIssue = SELECTEDVALUE(issues[Issue])
var isParent = if(not(isblank(lookupvalue(issues[Name of Parent Issue],issues[Name of Parent Issue],currentIssue))),1,0)
var parentHours = calculate(sum(issues[Hours]),filter(all(issues),currentIssue=issues[Name of Parent Issue]))
var issueHours = calculate(sum(issues[Hours]))
return

 if(isParent, parentHours+issueHours ,issueHours)

Thanks. I found this mapping table clear. I created it and then added another column showing just the sub tasks:
 
J_o_n_a_s_2-1611908509226.png

 

So then I ended up with this:
 
J_o_n_a_s_3-1611908509227.png

That's true. Thanks. But what if I would like to see the hours that correspond to each of them (B-2 and B-22)?

@J_o_n_a_s ,

The you can just pull the original column(Issue).

What is you expected result? Can you provide it in tabular format?

Hi @J_o_n_a_s ,

 

You can simple create a new column and use that.

DAX of new column:

New Issue = IF('Table'[Name of Parent Issue]=BLANK(),'Table'[Issue],'Table'[Name of Parent Issue])
