"Tracking team velocity in Kanban" might sound strange for some people as velocity is something specific to the Scrum framework and this term is not part of Kanban "by-the-book". But even in Kanban, especially when switching from Scrum to Kanban, the question "How much business value my team delivers in time?" is still applicable. In Kanban the velocity is actually called "throughput". As agile project manager or team member you want to see the amount of work done/delivered by your team in time, to see how the team performs or to make a better picture about the team's capacity that helps you to estimate further releases.
In Kanban you don't have time-boxed sprints, but you can measure the velocity / throughput on a per-week or per-month basis, by issues (cards) done or story-points burned. For example, "done issues per week" or "burned story-points per month".
Great Gadgets for Jira offers all you need to easily determine your team velocity / throughput. This app includes a Kanban Velocity gadget that helps you calculate and display a velocity chart on a Jira dashboard in a minute.
