Does GreenHopper save Team Velocity or can I query for Team Velocity using JQL? In writing this question, my thought is that I can query for closed Sprints and then take average Story Points for past few sprints. Does that seem to be the right approach?
The reason I want to query for the data vs. use the Team Velocity report in Greenhopper is that I need to build a more complex report and team velocity is one of the parameters.
Hi Laura - The GH velocity chart should show you a breakdown of velocity over time. See screenshot (I hope it attached properly). You should not have to query for the closed sprints then average story points... that reporting should already be available.
To get to the velocity chart click the report button on your scrum board, then under the board name you should see a dropdown list with "Burndown Chart" (or some other chart type). Click the dropdown menu and select Velocity Chart.
If the screenshot didn't work you can see the image in the GH screenshot-tour: http://www.atlassian.com/software/greenhopper/overview/screenshot-tour
Thanks, I know about the Team Velocity report. I am trying to build a different chart where one piece of data that I need is team velocity. Thus I was looking for a way to use SQL query to read the team velocity from Greenhopper if it is stored in the database. Perhaps it is only calculated each time for the team velocity report. That is part of my question. Is it stored, where it can be retrieved programmatically?
This would allow me to make relevant automatically updated dashboards for management reports, and JIRA filter reports in Confluence.
