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!

Agile methodology recommends Sprints length 1 – 4 weeks. Most Scrum trainers and coaches recommend Sprints to be 1 or 2 weeks long: http://www.agileadvice.com/2014/06/12/howtoapplyagile/21-tips-on-choosing-a-sprint-length/ .

If you want any plugin customization, please send request to Artezio: http://www.artezio.com/press-room/send-request-online


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 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

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
