I need to create a dashboard that show the percentage of progress of an epic. (= the percentage of progress of child issues for each epic). 

Do you know how I can do? 

Many thanks for your help,

Hi @Justine Comtat 

For a ready made solution, to visualize your Epic hierarchies and track sum up at each level, you can try out our add-on Agile Tools.

Agile Tools - Epic Tree, Links Tree and Time in Status 

Key features of the app are :

1) Links/Portfolio/Advanced Roadmaps Hierarchy :- View/Manage roll up for hierarchy (up to 10 levels), based on your Portfolio/Advanced Roadmaps/Issue Links parent child relationship.

2) Epic Hierarchy :- View/Manage roll up for standard Jira hierarchy. Epic -> User Story -> Subtask

3) Time in Status :- More than 7 types of Time in Status reports to track your issues.

4) Worklogs Report :- Track time spent by resources with multiple filters / category / grouping features

5) Timesheet :- View/Enter your time spent for multiple days

It is not quite the same as what you see in the Epic details view, but on a Dashboard you could use either the Pie Chart or the Issue Statistics gadget with a filter that gets all the issues with 

"Epic Link" = <Epic Issue ID>

(that filter works for a Company Managed project)

and set the statistic on the gadget to be Status. That will sum up the issues in the Epic by status and show count and percentage.

To be more precise, I'd like to have: 
Epic #1 Envision: 63% progress

I'd like the same!  The % Done info is in Jira (as you've shown), how do we show it on a dashboard without having to pay for an add-on?  I'd expect % Done to be a column we could add to filter results at the very least.  I'd appreciate any advice on how to do in Jira.  Thank you.

Welcome to the community.

There is no native way in Jira to show the percent done for an epic in a dashboard. It can be done with apps, or there were the suggestions I put in my previous response.

You can find other posts on the topic by searching the internet for "jira cloud report percent done for epic"

Thank you for your response Trudy.
