Epic, Task, & sub-task reporting/gadget

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Reporting

Is there a report or gadget that allows one to view epics, tasks, and sub-tasks in a hierarchical manner? Would like to see a tree view with the ability to expand & collapse the tree,  THANKS

Hi Louis,

If you are still searching for solution, please take a look at eazyBI report creation add-on for JIRA. With eazyBI you can create custom reports based on JIRA data.

Here is an example report that shows Issue hierarchy - Epic, Task and sub-task - with various issue properties. You can expand or collapse any of the Epics or it's tasks as well as add other measures and properties to the report.
Let me know if you have any questions regarding eazyBI!

Kind regards,
Lauma /

Hi All,

I know it is a bit late to answer this, but many people keep looking for an easy solution to this problem. We have built an add-on to manage multiple Epics and their hierarchy on a single page. You may want to try it out.

Agile Tools - Epic Tree and Time in Status 

Manage and visualize your Epics with rolled up estimate progress reports.

Key features:

  • Epic Sum
  • Configure progress % calculation on either "remaining estimate" or "original estimates"
  • Epic Tree directly on Issue Screen
  • Display and manage Epics/Issues of your project
  • Edit Issue summary, time estimates, story points and assignee on the tree with real time updates in the progress
  • Rolled up percentage completion and at issue level as well
  • JQL support for Epic Hierarchy screen
  • Time in Status report using JQL
  • Issue Tracker to view complete transitions on your issue screen
    • Status Transition : View all the status changes in a single tab along with average time and count in each status. Switch between graphical and tabular view to make more out of the data.
    • Assignee Transition : View all the assignees for the issue along with the time for which the issue was with each assignee. Switch between graphical and tabular view to make more out of the data.

Lauma, I am not able to see anything when I review the example metric you posted above.  Can you send a screen shot of what it looks like?  Is there tutorial on how you made the metric in eazyBI.  A colleague and I had been trying to make something very similar in Arsenale Dataplane and with basic gadgets in JIRA but had no luck.  It sounds like this would work though. 

Hi Nick,

I am sorry, the example above has been removed from the test account. Here is another example in our demo account using Issue Epic hierarchy and some properties displayed in Gantt chart. When clicking on the + next to Epic name, you can see tasks that are part of the Epic.

You can create such report by using Issue Epic hierarchy and then using the measures you are interested in.

Let me know if there is anything else I can assist you with!

Thank you Lauma.  This might be exactly what I am looking for.
