Report Time spent based on Labels


We are looking to define a way of tracking tasks based on the criteria of time logged for specific labels. 

Jira has two built in fields for Tasks. "Time Tracking" and "Labels". We are hoping that Jira has native reporting options that can list Tasks that match a label and then the time spent on each individual tasks but more importantly is the ability to create Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly and yearly reports on number of tasks with a specific label and cumulative time spent on each label criteria. 

Hoping we can do this within Jira as a number of apps are more advanced than what we need for this simple report. 

Regards, A

Hi @Alan McCay 


it would be rather cumbersome to achieve 100% what you described in the standard Jira without doing any extra step/effort.


You can get such easy to use simple reports using one of the addons from the marketplace:

After review we have come to the same conclusion. 

We are currently investigation "Time Reports" which apparently supports Labels, and is free as part of Web version.

Thanks, A

Hi @Alan McCay  -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

For reporting with out-of-the-box Jira features you may use saved filter searches, under the top-navigation bar: Filters > Advanced Issue Search

For example, you note an example of seeing the time tracking for a specific label for last week.  You could do this with the query below, adding the Time Spent field to the columns:

project = myProject
AND labels IN (myLabel)
AND worklogDate >= startOfWeek(-1)
AND worklogDate < endOfWeek(-1)

To learn more about advanced searching features with JQL, please look here:

There is no built-in reporting engine for Jira.  There are the filters and some dashboard capabilities.  To get better reporting, there are marketplace add-ons for purchase.  You may investigate them here:
