Is there a way to create release burndown chart across multiple boards?

We have multiple teams with separate boards but they are working towards one single release. Right now I'm taking data from each board and to show the burndown in spreadsheet. So wondering if I can use either JIRA or confluence for consolidated burn down report.

Create another board that includes all the issues across all of their boards.  You'll be able to see burndown on that.

Thank you! could you provide more details on how to link multiple boards in new board?

You don't.  You need to stop thinking of boards as containers, and see them as views.

You need a new filter that includes all the issues that are filtered for by your other boards.

The most simple way to do this is look at each board, copy their filter, drop the "order by" clause and encase it in braces, then join it to the others with OR.

For example, let's say you have boards with

  • Project = X order by rank desc
  • Project = Y and issuetype = bug order by rank desc
  • Component = wheel order by rank desc


(Project = X) OR (Project = Y and issuetype = bug ) OR (Component = wheel )  order by rank desc
