I want to be able to see a burndown by Jira Project Board, Initiative, or Epic. 

The current Burndown Chart is for a sprint requires hours tracking. We do not track hours. 

The Epic Brundown is okay, but I don't see the trendline. Nor can I have this done by Jira Project board (all items in the backlog and sprints), or Initiative.  Also I'd prefer a line graph, over a bar chart. 

Does Jira have simple Burndown chart?

Overall, the reporting seems like it has missed the mark.

Hi @John Roth,

Jira has a Burndown Chart report and Burndown Chart gadget, but they work with an agile board, so not so flexible. 

Your best option here is our Great Gadgets app, which offers a Release Burdown Burnup Chart gadget that works with a filter or JQL, thus allowing you to track what you want: one or more projects, one ore more epics or initiatives.

All you have to do is to configure this gadget to use a filter / JQL that returns the issues representing the scope. The gadget supports any type of estimate, can include sub-tasks and can make forecasts.

For more details about this gadget and the many others offered by this app, see these articles: 

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at support@stonikbyte.com. 

Hope this helps.

Danut.

Thank you, Danut. It looks like Jira lacks a native tool to create a burndown like the one you shared from Great Gadgets. 

 

The links you provided are helpful. I'll review with my team. I see there are 10 free licenses. Are they a trial for "X"-days or are they free to users under 10?

Hi @John Roth

The app is free for Jira instances that have less than 10 users in total.

Thank you,
