Get Epic Percent Complete and Count Complete on dashboard

From a Jira board, we can glean good information from the Backlog view when viewing an Epic in the Epics panel. We get a great progress bar and on-hover can reveal the percent complete for that epic and the number of story points earned (assuming you have your board's estimation statistic using story points).

When viewing the Epic issue in full-screen, we get a good progress bar that displays a green, blue, and gray fill regions based on the total number of issues in that epic that have been completed, in progress, or open (of course, based on your status and mappings). On-hover, it reveals the count of issues for each fill color.

These are both wonderful scales of performance. I can get total story points delivered from an Epic and its total issue count delivered.

But, how can I present this data on a Jira dashboard? I'm open to any Atlassian Add-On to achieve this, if needed. I see no such means to get this valuable data.

Interesting, quick responses from several vendors. Nice! I'm glad to see such close collaboration here in Answers...I will start to assess these options today. Huge thanks so far. I'm tired of folks telling me, in general, to look at the atlassian marketplace and just point me generically there to fend for myself. I appreciate the three options posed here by you three folks very much. I'll check back next week to advise where I'm at...

Hey everybody,

You can do this with our app Epic Sum Up. We provide a dashboard gadget that enables you to display a variety of different metrics for you projects. 

You can sort, filter and edit information regarding time spent, completed issues within a hierarchy as well as a multitude of other (custom) fields. 


Hope this helps.

Hello @Paul Alexander - How are you? 


If you are open to using an add-on, take a look at this one - Mindpro Insights: Dynamic Dashboards & Reports for Jira.

Using this app, you can create dashboards in seconds in Jira using chart gadgets and dynamic filters.

You can track multiple projects and initiatives (including sprints, epics, and releases and measure progress using time estimation, story points, or issues count).

Additionally, you can have an integrated view of the dashboard, and the issues list on the same screen and enable a hierarchy view to gain a more granular, precise view of your projects, releases, and filters.

If you want to explore more, take a look here:

Give it a spin, maybe can help in your scenario.

Best, Eduardo from Mindpro Team
