How can I generate a performance report by user?

We are using JIRA with Agile plugin together with Bitbucket and Confluence. 
Our developers are logging their spent time using the "Log work" functionality in JIRA.

Now I would like to generate a report like that for each user: 

  •  Time logged in whole period
    • Time logged per week or per day
  • Difference between estimated time and logged time for whole period
    • Difference between estimated time and logged time per issue

The time period should be configurable (last month, last sprint, etc.).
If possible, we would prefer a solution without expensive plugins.

Thank you!

Here is a great free option! There is a Chrome Store extension called 'Jira Assistant' (there are two named that, so find the one in the screenshot).  In the Extension, there is a Reporting section called 'User-Daywise'. There, you can do a custom time window (your sprint) and see all tasks a user burned for the sprint. It shows daily, and at the end of the row, it shows TOTAL for the window - AMAZING!!!Jira assistant.png

Thanks Dane, really good tool 

looks like what i need. but wants settings that make me wonder if this  can  be used with jira cloud?

@Heidi Bellio- yes it can be used with JIRA cloud.

Hi Barry,

The Time Sheet report might be suitable for you.

Go to Projects > Reports > Time Sheet report.

There will be a bunch of options for you to refine your report results.






Hi Paulo,

Thanks a lot, this quite solves my issue.

The only thing I didn't figure out yet:
Can I somehow display the difference between logged time and estimated time?

Thanks, Barry

Hi Barry,

I believe that the Time Tracking Report does that for you.

Hi Barry.

If you need a report across Projects, then Tempo Timesheets might be a suitable add-on for you to consider.

In Tempo Timesheets you can generate advanced reports based on Teams, Users, Issue Filters and more.


Hi All,

we also need a similar report like Barry Lamora posted , Tempo is really good but it is not  a free-ware.

kindly request to share the good time tracking report for the JIRA to track on the basis of user report.



You can use this addon to get more useful reports and also download the granular workload data for further processing:

Hope this helps
