Average time to resolve tickets for last 30 days

I'm searching for a method to track Average Time to resolve a ticket for the last 30 days.  The built in widgets don't really provide a clear solution; I've read an article or two that indicate you can create a jql: 

resolution != Unresolved AND Organizations = "ORGANISATION_NAME" and resolutiondate >= startOfMonth() and resolutiondate <= endOfMonth()

Is using JQL the best method to make this happen?  It seems this would be a default gadget, but doesn't appear to be.  The average age chart seems to only display open items, not the average resolve time.  

Any easy methods to handle this?

Hello @Brian Milovich 

You can easily get the Average time it takes to solve each issue with Time in Status for Jira Cloud by my SaaSJet team. It generates the Average time report which you can filter by the assignee and get the average time it takes to solve the issues for the necessary assignee.

You can export this report to CSV and XLSX files or share the with other team members or even analytical systems for further analysis.

You can get a free 30-day trial version. And ask me if you have any additional questions.

Hope it helps

I'm looking to add an average time (from Open to Close) for the sum of all issues.  

I'm hoping to have that number displayed within my dashboard.  Is that possible?

Hi @Brian Milovich

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

As an alternative, you can try Status Time Reports app developed by our team. It mainly provides reports and gadgets based on how much time passed in each status.

Here is the online demo link, you can see it in action and try without installing the app.

  • This app has a dynamic status grouping feature so that you can generate various valuable reports as time in status, time in assignee, status entry dates and status counts, cycle time and lead time, average/sum reports by any field(e.g. average in progress time by project, average cycle time by issue creation month).
  • You can search issues by Project, Issue Type, Status, Assignee, Issue Creation/Resolution Date(and any other Date field) and JQL Query.
  • Status durations are calculated according to the working calendar you define. Once you enter your working calendar into the app, it takes your working schedule into account too. That is, "In Progress" time of an issue opened on Friday at 5 PM and closed on Monday at 9 AM, will be a few hours rather than 3 days.
  • You can set different duration formats.
  • You can export reports in CSV file format and open them in MS Excel.
  • You can also add this app as a gadget to your Jira dashboards and reach “Status Time” from Issue Detail page.
  • You can enable/disable access to Status Time reports&gadgets and Issue Detail page per project, users, groups or project role.

If you are looking for a free solution, you can try the limited version Status Time Free.

Hope it helps.

Hi @Brian Milovich 

Welcome to the community !!

If you are open for a mktplace solution, you can try out our plugin,

Time in Status Reports 

The add-on provides the time in each status for the entire lifecycle of the issue, including the average time.

You can group multiple statuses and only include the ones you need to define a total combined time in those statuses.

Do try it out.

Hello @Brian Milovich ,

JQL is used to just filter issues. JQL by itself can't calculate average vales for you.

If you are limited to out-of-the-box functions, your best bet would be to use the Average Age chart (available as a dashboard gadget or project report) or the Control Chart (available as part of Kanban Board reports if you have Jira Software). Both of these options provide an overall picture of your issues and they offer limited flexibility in terms of report parameters.

For maximum flexibility, you should use a marketplace app.


If you are OK with using a marketplace app for this, our team at OBSS built Time in Status for this exact need. It is available for Jira Server, Cloud, and Data Center.  

Time in Status mainly allows you to see how much time each issue spent on each status and on each assignee

The app has Consolidated Columns feature. This feature allows you to combine the duration for multiple statuses into a single column and exclude unwanted ones. It is the most flexible way to get any measurement you might want. Measurements like Issue Age, Cycle Time, Lead Time, Resolution Time etc.

For all numeric report types, you can calculate averages and sums of those durations grouped by the issue fields you select. For example total in-progress time per customer (organization) or average resolution time per sprint, week, month, issuetype, request type, etc. The ability to group by parts of dates (year, month, week, day, hour) or sprints is particularly useful here since it allows you to compare different time periods or see the trend.


The app calculates its reports using already existing Jira issue histories so when you install the app, you don't need to add anything to your issue workflows and you can get reports on your past issues as well. It supports both Company Managed and Team Managed projects.

Time in Status reports can be accessed through its own reporting page, dashboard gadgets, and issue view screen tabs. All these options can provide both calculated data tables and charts.

And the app has a REST API so you can get the reports from Jira UI or via REST.

Using Time in Status you can:

  • See how much time each issue spent on each status, assignee, user group and also see dates of status transitions.
  • Calculate averages and sums of those durations grouped by issue fields you select. (For example, see average InProgress time per project and per issue type.)
  • Export your data as XLS, XLSX, or CSV.
  • Access data via REST API. (for integrations)
  • Visualize data with various chart types.
  • See Time in Status reports on Jira Dashboard gadgets
