Hello @Uma Sanjeevi 

You can try Time in Status for Jira Cloud. This add-on generates a report on how long an issue has been staying in each status (Testing, In progress, etc). Additionally, you'll get a few reports that show assignee time, status entry dates, the average time in status, and total time reports. 

You can view data as a Graph or Charts view. 

If you have any additional questions, I'm here to help you

Best regards, Mariana.


let me try it out first before i accept the answer- will do it sometime this week. 

HI - can I setup which status i would like to report on at all ? there are some status where it is not required to be reported on... is this possible ?


Can you precise in more details what do you want to do?

If you want to turn off (or turn on) statuses to(or out of) a report, you can do it in Column manager menu easily.

Hi Mariana


One question - when i export the data to excel - does it only exports the data for the filter we have as in date ranges - "Created" for xx dates or it covers all the 3 drop down for the date ranges (Created, Updated and Resolved)?


if I need all 3 status do i export 3 report and merge them ? i am just thinking to get a complete picture of how long a feature as been in the status for - by driving from "Created" date is good enought to get the full time slice or not ?


Please reply back by today if you can.. thanks 

Hi @Uma Sanjeevi 

If you need all 3 date statuses (Created, Updated, and Resolved), just select any date option. And the report will include all issues selected by other filters you select before (without time (date) limits).

In case you need more help, for a quick response please contact our customer success team at

Best Regards



Is there a way to send a automated email from Time in Status filter that I can get on a daily basis.

Hi @Uma Sanjeevi ,

Unfortunately, the report you are looking for is not built-in inside Jira.

Our team at Bloompeak developed Status Time app for this exact need. Once you enter your working calendar into the app, it takes your working schedule into account too. That is, "In Progress" time of an issue opened on Friday at 5 PM and closed on Monday at 9 AM, will be a few hours rather than 3 days. It has various other reports like assignee time, status entry dates, average/sum reports(eg. average in progress time per project).

Here is the online demo link, you can see it in action and try. Hope it helps.

this is an plug-in we have to purchase I suppose... an extra plug-in. not part of the base features.. is this correct? kindly confirm.

Hi @Uma Sanjeevi ,

Yes it is a plugin that must be purchased. But, as in all other marketplace apps, there is 1 month trial period without any payment.

I am getting the access to the one mth trail period today to try this out.. thanks.

@Uma Sanjeevi, Here is the marketplace link for the app.

I will appreciate if you accept my answer.

@Uma Sanjeevi,

Yes, it is possible. You can define which status you would like to report on. See the below screenshot on how to do it.

By the way, there is a tree structure as below in community answers and you replied to under other answers. Because of it, initially I missed your question.

@Bloompeak Support , this looks like a Jira filter, but I do not see the items you display in step 2 and step 3.  Do you have additional plugins in stalled to access this info?

Bloompeak Support Marketplace Partner Oct 02, 2020

Hi @Marianne Miller ,

Yes, it requires additional plugin. It is the report page of Status Time plugin. You can see it action in the online demo.

For a ready built solution that offers great fexibility and details, our team at OBSS built Time in Status app for this exact need. It is available for Jira Server, Cloud and Data Center.

Time in Status allows you to see how much time each issue spent on each status or assigned to each assignee as well as entry/exit dates for all statuses. You can calculate averages and sums of those durations grouped by issue fields you select. (For example see the average InProgress time per project and per issuetype). You can also combine statuses into consolidated columns to see metrics like Ticket Age, Cycle Time or Lead Time.





The app calculates its reports using already existing Jira issue histories so when you install the app, you don't need to add anything to your issue workflows and you can get reports on your past issues as well.

The app has Custom calendar support which means you can get your reports based on a 24/7 calendar or your custom business calendar. (This one is important because a 24/7 calendar in most cases shows misleading data. For example an issue created at 16:00 on Friday and was resolved at 09:00 on next Monday seems to stay open for 2,5 days but in terms of business hours, it is only a few hours. You can see this using Time in Status by OBSS.)

Using Time in Status you can:

  • See how much time each issue spent on each status, assignee, user group and also see dates of status transitions.
  • Calculate averages and sums of those durations grouped by issue fields you select. (For example see average InProgress time per project and per issuetype.)
  • Export your data as XLS, XLSX or CSV.
  • Access data via REST API.
  • Visualize data with various chart types.


this view can be improved to what and how it is used...  it can accommodate the following suggestion for better usability and user friendly perspective 


1. Order the columns to the kanban / sprint board view of the project

2. ensure only the project cards are visible and not all cards across all projects

3. have a % data view under the format tab - because the % view is better stats as compared to no of days and etc.. you can actually use the % view to really understand the flow across the different size of work

4. when cards are migrated from one board to another - use the status in the current board only.. and not map the whole lot of status the card has gone thru - have it relate to the current project view.


5. the export option - order the data to the JIRA view and the data is exported as numeric data type to excel and not just a text data type .. one less step to do manually to convert the columns to number


I am currently using this plug-in lots and want this plug-in to be more user friendly as well. Esp when exec and top management are looking at it as well. currently whatever i setup is only visible to me .. the settings are not saved at the project level ( I really hope we can able project level settings ).
