Epic level reporting (JIRA Cloud) Edited

Hi All,

The Epic level reports provided in JIRA cloud version seems to only work if the epics are in the current sprint. But to me Epics are large undertakings that will not be completed in a single sprint. So we have only added stories to the sprint. I would still like to get an epic level report that tells me how much of the Epics is completed (both in terms of number of stories completed as well as hours or story points burnt. Is there anyway I can get this report in the cloud version? (Even an add-on?)

Thanks. 
Eshan

Hey Eshan,

Might I suggest using Fix Versions to address your problem?

If you tag each Epic with a unique Fix Version you can track progress through both the Releases tab as well as the Versions report.

Hope this helps,

Tyler

Thanks for that! I might try that. Was really hoping there was an easy way to give me a breakdown of an Epic.

Hi Eshan,

Do you mean that the Epic report (https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirasoftwarecloud/epic-report-777002698.html)  doesn't work for you?

I believe that the Portfolio for JIRA add-on may work better:

Hope it helps,

Hi Carlos,

Thanks for the reply. The link doesn't seem to work. 

Yes the Epic report doesn't work for me since I have not added the Epics into the Sprint. And I don't intend to as the Epics span multiple sprints. So when I go to the report it say, not Epics in this Sprint. 

I don't think Portfolio is right for us as we are limited to one project. It is just that we would like to see a view of the Epics as we chug along with the stories. Ideally, we would like to see how many stories in a Epic have been completed and how much percentage of the effort of that Epic has been spent up to date. 

Thanks.

Eshan,


I am having the same issue here.  I have not yet found a report that can provide me with this information.  If you get an answer I would be happy to know about it.  Thanks.

I have the same issue.  We have large stories that span over several months - even our entire focal year.  I now understand that these should really be epics.

But all of our operational initiatives are listed as stories and I have a hard time to see what has been completed (tasks listed under the stories) for a particular sprint (which is by month).  

Any ideas?
