What is Cycle Time in Jira?

Cycle time refers to the total duration it takes for an issue to move from one status to another within your Jira project. It represents the end-to-end time taken to complete a task, from the moment it enters the workflow until it reaches its final status. By analyzing cycle time in Jira, you can gain insights into how efficiently your team is progressing through their work. Note! Cycle time in Jira includes only active statuses (from In Progress to Under Review, for example).
