What are some common ways to use JQL to provide Metrics for your Agile team?

I know there are tons of different ways that JQL can be used to pull metrics from our JIRA boards but it has been a while since I have done so. Any advice on how to use some to get a feel for the teams velocity? Thanks in advance!

Ahh, the power of JQL.  Here's how you can be a 'metrics superstar'

  1. Run and save a filter to grab epics and the issues of those epics  issue in issuesWhereEpicIn("key in (JIRA-100, JIRA-101)") or key in (JIRA-100, JIRA-101)
  2. Create a rich filter and populate that rich filter with the filter you just created & saved
  3. Create a dashboard and add some 'rich' filters 
  4. Populate those gadgets with your rich filter


Now you can go into your rich filter and create a bunch of 'smart' filters.  

Hope this helps.



Thank you! Yes, very helpful!!
