Reports from Rapid Board? Or managing a scrum team with multiple projects?


I have a team working on multiple projects in JIRA. I need to prioritize the work that is across four different JIRA projects. I just set this up using the Kanban Rapid Board because the Scrum Boards only seem to be appropriate for one project at a time.

How can I get a report showing what has been completed over a given period of time?

Or maybe someone has a better recomendation of how I can use one filter (which includes multiple projects) to manage a scrum team?

I currently have Atlassian JIRA (v4.4.3#663-r165197) & GreenHopper (v5.8.7)...

Thanks so much!

Hi Cassie,

5.8.7 is a very old version of GreenHopper, we're currently on version 6.0.3, over 15 releases from 5.8.7. If you upgrade you'll get much better Scrum support in the new boards.

In terms of a report showing what's completed over time, perhaps you should check out the Cumulative Flow Diagram in the Report section, use the 'Refine' button to select just Done statuses.


If I upgrade to 6.0.3, can I use a filter on a board that contains more than one project?

Sure, in 6.0.3 what used to be called 'Rapid Boards' are the default boards. They can work across projects.


Hi Shaun,

I like the Cumulative Flow Chart but this can only be used for 1 project at a time. My board is used for 5 different projects. Is there a way for me to use a Kanban board query with the cumulative flow chart?


Hi Charles,

That isn't the case, access the 'Cumulative Flow Chart' in the Report mode of your Kanban board, it is not project sensitive.
