JIRA Agile Board Adding Status Totals

in JIRA when viewing a board under agile it shows tickets under To Do, In Progress, Ready for Test, Testing, and Done columns. Is there a way that the column headers can also show the totals in each column?


Ready For Test

3 Issues

Thanks in advance,

Went to task board and clicked the dropped down from the button that said "board" chose configure and set the column restraint to issue count with no mx or min. And it is now showing correctly.


Can you post a screenshot of how your board looks currently.

Is it a Scrum or Kanban board ?

It is a scrum board. I tried uploading a screen shot ... but i'm not seeing that it uploaded (clicking the blue up arrow and selecting the file from my desktop).

As far as I know, for Scrum board there is no way to achieve this (at least without modifying the source code :) ).

This functionality is available on Kanban boards, by deafult.
