I am trying to use the Control Report (on prem, not cloud version). I am noticing that it's including stories, epics and subtasks. That seems wrong to me. I would expect it to only include stories. Is this a defect? Can I do something so it only includes stories?  thanks.

Hi @kathy cieplik My name is Habib; I will do my best to help you with your request:

If you are using the Control Chart report in Jira Software Server (on-prem), you may notice that it includes stories, epics, and sub-tasks by default.
However, you can modify the JQL (Jira Query Language) search criteria that the report is based on to filter by issue type and only include stories.

Here are the steps to do this:

  1. Navigate to the Control Chart report for your project.
  2. Click on the "Configure" button in the top-right corner of the report.
  3. You should now see the "Configure Report" screen. Under the "Data" section, you will see a "Filter" field with a JQL query. This is the query that the report is based on.
  4. Edit the query to filter for only stories. For example, you can add the following to the query: `AND issuetype = Story`. This will ensure that only stories are included in the report.
  5. Click the "Update" button to apply the changes to the report.

If you want to further filter the report by additional criteria, like specific labels or assignees, you can add clauses to the JQL query accordingly.
For example, you can add `AND labels = XYZ` to filter by a specific label, or `AND assignee = John` to filter by a specific assignee.
In short, it is not a defect, and you can modify the JQL query to filter for only stories to ensure that they are the only issue types included in the Control Chart report.

Thanks Habib

thanks so much. This was very helpful. I think the default from Atlassian should be this (only stories) or they should change their online help to be more clear about what is included by default. It still doesn't make sense to me that it would include epics and subtasks. Thanks again.
