I want to build burn down chart based on Status and not on the Column (Done)

Gopikrishna_Kunduru April 21, 2023

I have 3 columns in Scrum Board (To Do, In Progress, Done) for which there are multiple statuses mapped to show on board.

By default Jira is taking last column (Done) statuses and doing burn down in chart. I want to do burndown when workitem is in "QA Verified" status  which is actually mapped to In Progress Column.

Can someone assist how can we do this without changing the status mapping of columns.

You can create another board, and configure it such that the bolded statuses you're indicating are in the righthand/done column. The burndown report for that board will show those points 'burning off' when they reach that column.

as indicated in this thread:

Hope that helps... solved my problem.

Hi @Gopikrishna_Kunduru 

What problem are you trying to solve by doing this?  And, what would it mean to call something "done" on a burn chart which is still in progress according to your process steps?  How would this impact other indicators your team uses, such as velocity, definition of done, etc.?

Knowing these things may help the community to suggest other alternatives to help. 

For example, if you are assessing progress by status and flow, you could try using Atlassian's interpretation of a Cumulative Flow Diagram instead.

Kind regards,
Bill

@Bill Sheboy Thanks for your reply. Below is my workflow and how i display the work items on Scrum Board based on Status. I want the burndown to happen if work item goes to status highlighted below in Bold (In Progress) to assess the progress of sprint.

Thanks for that information, and I was asking why do you want to do that?

Teams using the Scrum Framework often use the idea of a "definition of done", clarifying what it means for a work item to be completed.  This helps a team have a shared understanding with themselves and their stakeholders on the completeness of work.  This is one concepts to help with transparency in Scrum.

Your board layout has status values of "Done" and Complete" in the last column.  To Jira, that means you have identified those status values as complete in terms of a Sprint.  And you have many other status values in your earlier columns, such as "In Progress".  Calling things in earlier columns "complete" may not align with your team's definition of done, and could have unintended consequences, such as: invalidate velocity tracking, confuse stakeholders on the readiness of work, and break down trust with others.

If I am not explaining this well, I suggest meeting with your scrum master or agile coach to explain what you are trying to do and see how they might help.

Hello @Gopikrishna_Kunduru

That can not be done with the native burndown chart.

You might be able to create something using a third party app. Are you open to getting a third party app?

I have not needed to solve this problem myself, so I don't know of a specific app that can be used.

Here is a search of the Atlassian Marketplace for apps that mention burndown charts. You can review each app to see if it can fulfill your need.
