I am using excel to generate a Burndown for a 6 week release, which is on a Kanban board. Is there an easy way I can generate the Burndown using the Kanban Board to display a report on the team wiki?
Even better, is it possible to create a gadget Kanban Burndown?
I know it would not be as accurate as a Scrum Board, but it will aid us tremendously in visualizing our bottlenecks.
Nope. Burndown charts are for showing the estimated and actual work occurring in a sprint. Kanban doesn't have sprints, so "kanban burndown" is basically nonsense. Even saying "6 week release" implies you should be using a Scrum board because you are planning what is effectively a sprint.
Try the Control report though - that gives you a good indication of how your team is doing without needing a sprint to tie it to. (I quite like the cumulative flow instead, it feels better for "how we're doing" at a glance)
Try the Great Gadgets add-on (see https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.stonikbyte.great.gadgets.plugin/cloud/overview). It offers a Release Burndown Chart Gadget that is based on a JIRA issue filter and allows you to select the start and end date for your release.
