Is there a way to view a Release (multiple sprint) Burndown Chart?

Ok so here is my current scenario. We have a project "Project A" and it will take 7 months to fully complete. Inside it there will be 7 sprints, each of 1 month length. This "Project A" is also on its own Scrum Board.

What I would like to see is a release burndown chart, in other words, I want to see a burndown chart at the end of the 7 months which shows the burndown of all issues throughout the whole project. So there might be an issue which takes 3 months to complete, which is 3 sprints. I want to be able to track on a burndown how time is burning down over all 7 months.

Is there any way I can do this?

Thank you!

Hey there, Tudor.

Wow. I don't think the Burndown Chart in the current GreenHopper can cater for this. Since the Burndown Chart only caters for a single sprint at one time, I think you might need some customisation on this.

Perhaps you can consider the assistance via paid services through our Atlassian Experts (

Not to forget, we also have the Atlassian Community Chat Room for development questions ( Have a look at the Developers Network page too (

Hope this helps.

Warm regards,


Thanks Danial, I will take a look into the links you posted. Any idea if I can do something like this using a Version? So for example say a Version for a project takes 3 months, and Sprints are 2 weeks long, can I get a Burndown Chart to show the whole 3 months and how time was burned down for the Version? I guess I can ask this in Chat Room as well

It's frustrating, the release burndown report is misnamed as it does not show a burndown chart and also the filter can't be changed sad Older versions of JIRA had the sprint burndown gadget which ran against a filter, removing that was a backwards step sad

But I think the control chart can provide what you are looking for, you can customise the time frame and filter it using a quick filter, see

The Release Burndown Burnup Chart Gadget offered by the Great Gadgets add-on (see is based on a filter.

Try the Release Burndown Burnup Chart Gadget offered by the Great Gadgets add-on (see It helps you make the release burndown / burnup chart visible on your dashboards.
