I mentioned to keep you updated and want to follow up on this now: Atlassian is working on a fix to correct the calculations. All details can be found here:

Hello @Mahesh Khande , I have the same question and not a final answer here, but the following hints:

the values for probability and impact depend on the the respective entry at the select boxes of a risk. At the moment the values seem to be fixed to values as listed below (independent of any other constraint):


  • Critical: 2%
  • High: 1%
  • Medium: 3% 
  • Low: 4%

(note, that "Critical" and "High" seem to be mixed up)


  • Critical: 1
  • High: 2
  • Medium: 3 
  • Low: 4

The total exposure is the product of Occurance and Impact.

I already have asked the technical support team about this report - I keep you updated in case I get any further information before someone else has an answer here.
