Is there a %Complete field for Epic issue types?

I need a quick way to determine the %Complete of my epics. Is there a specific field or report type that I can quickly access?

Do you mean for an individual Epic the percent of its child stories that are complete?

Are you trying to get this information for multiple epics at once or one epic at a time?

How do you want to determine percent complete; based on count of stories, or based on time estimates?

@Trudy Claspill 

One epic at a time, based on stories completed.

Is a story completed only when "Resolution" is closed?

Also can Epics have Epic children?

Epics cannot have other Epics as children. The native hierarchy supported by Jira is

Epics < Story/Bug/Task < Sub-tasks

You can extend this hierarchy using something like Advanced Roadmaps or other third party apps.

The percentage complete, based on issue count, for an Epic is displayed within the Epic itself. You can see it at the top of the list of child issues.

You can also display this using the Pie Chart gadget configured with a filter that gets the issues that share an Epic Link value, and using Resolution as the Statistic for the gadget.

An issue is considered complete when the Resolution field is any value other than "Unresolved"

If you used Advanced Roadmaps there's a Progress (Issue Count) field that you can add to easily view % complete (see below)
