I want to use JIRA Agile Scrum configuration to aggregate sprint status of the overall project.
Let me give an example to clarify:
There is a Project A and Project B.
Within Project A there are two sprints:
Within Project B there are three sprints:
Let me preface by saying I am new to using JIRA for Agile Scrum.
Are we going down the wrong path here? Is it better to have a global sprint that spans across projects and blocks? The general thinking is the team wants to have control of their own sprint.
How do I generate a aggregate report of all sprints?
Any way to make a combined burn down chart based on dates?
Hi Michael and Michael,
out of the box there isn't a way to aggregate activities tracked under different projects/teams/sprints. This falls under the definition of a Program. Cycle Control add-on is designed exactly with that use case in mind - you can define your initiative as a aggregation of different Agile Boards or Projects on top of that you can see the progress and any custom metrics on a timeline.
Let us know if you are interested in a quick demo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm facing into this same issue - I'd love to hear a definitive answer.
I understand you can create a new board with a custom filter that includes all of the Issues from each of the 'child' Projects - then, in theory, you can use the sprint burndown chart for that 'aggregate' board. BUT, if each project has their own Sprint defined (perhaps even with different names) then the Sprint Burndown report won't work across the whole programme - it will only display one of the Sprints at a time.
I believe the solution (although I'm unable to test it yet) is to have all child projects use the same Sprint - which can only occur if at least one issue (that is assigned to that sprint) appears on each project board. Which is probably not desirable because you don't want issues appearing on multiple boards.
Not sure what the total solution is, but would love to hear from folks doing this.
Hi Michael, you listed quite accurate the challenges if you don't have additional budget and want an Agile board to aggregate the deliverables from multiple boards, you can use one sprint across many boards and projects.
This solution is quite clumsy and each time you need to make changes the filter needs to be adjusted and if one of the Child projects somehow change than the aggregate board won't show the aggregated information.
Then if this is still acceptable, you cannot see all the information in one place, you need to constantly jump between boards. The reports are limited and fixed - you can't customize them.
I hope this helps.
