Burndown Chart for more than 3 months

Just installed the Burndown Chart, but it looks like it only allows time spans of less that three months. I want to do a burn down for the entire project that is 1 year long. 

Is that possible?

Hi @Kevin Harvey ,

You can do this with our Great Gadgets add-on (available for both Jira Server and Jira Cloud).

It offers a "Release Burndown Burnup" dashboard gadget that is based on a filter and allows ou to set the start/end date of the project. 

More details about how to configure it can be found in the add-ons documentation:!release-burnup-burndown-chart

Hi  @Kevin Harvey

Just interesting What is the purpose to see burndown on long time period? 

How do you do it now after 2 years?

Our projects are 2+ years, but not agile or sprint based but waterfall. (Atlassian seems to assume sprint based).

So knowing that we have 600 man days of estimate over 2 years, is the rate at which we are burning down gong to get us to the end; that is what the purpose is.


And I found no automated solution. Each Monday I export all of the outstanding Jiras for each project into excel. Then convert the estimate (which is in minuets !??) into days. Then add that to a plot. 

A real pain!

Hm, what do you think about some Qlick View/ Tableau tools getting data from slave DB. 

You will need to write once the request, then just updating data a delta info.

What do you think? 

Hope it helps

Thanks for the reply.

That assumes that we are using Scrum - we are not; Hence the need to do the burndown over a much longer timeframe. Indeed our projects often run for 2 years. 

I will put a request in as suggested,

Hi, Kevin!

Agile methodology recommends Sprints length 1 – 4 weeks. Most Scrum trainers and coaches recommend Sprints to be 1 or 2 weeks long: .

If you want any plugin customization, please send request to Artezio:
