Defects per Story Report ?

I'm experimenting with Dashboards and would like to know that for a given Release, how many defects are related to each story. ?

Currently we create a story and push it all the way through to Done, if during QA we find a problem we raise a defect and associate it to the original story.  Therefore giving us a small indication off the quality of that story.

I would like to build a report that shows all the stories in a release, with the number of defects raised against it .. but I don't see how that is possible, Extending it further we have plans to raise specific defect types (user raised vs dev raised) against the story - and would aim to show both these numbers against the story

Hello @Paul Simpkins Welcome,

Getting the count of the defects connected to a story is not directly possible.

you can try to get the individual defect count data from a Release or sprint using a JQL like:
Project = <name> AND Issuetype = Defect AND Release = <Release name>

Project = <name> AND Issuetype = Defect AND Sprint = <Sprint ID>

With this you can use in the various available widgets in Jira.

also have a look at Jira Structures

With Structures you can explore deep and add more filters and JQL at various level of your backlog hierarchy.

Hi @Paul Simpkins

There are few addons to Jira that may help you to visualize the described situation. One of them is BigPicture/BigGantt. The plugin allows you to create a no-limited number of WBS levels. Task Structure can be created based on both build-in task attributes (e.g., Version, Epic link, Component, Sprint) as well as Jira links. Moreover, the Gantt view displays a timeline and aggregated values on a Story and Version level.
Below you can find a simplified example.
