I've been scratching my head around the following need we have regarding the use of JIRA software. We would like to have a way to track the progress of several projects in one simple view. 

My original idea was to use Fix Versions to separate the different phases we follow in our project lifecycle. Then, all we want to see is a % progress on these versions based on a simple mathematical formula: number of issues completed tagged with version X/number of issues tagged with version X.

I know there is the version report in the project tab or even you can see somewhat that information in the backlog with the version filter.

The problem is we would like to track that information for all the projects in our JIRA cloud in a singular view.

Is there any way of doing this?

Thanks in advance.

Hi @jordan.rowe and welcome to the Community!

While Jira is very well equipped to manage work from idea to completion and track these things at project or board level, you are right that out of the box, it has its limitations to track progress across multiple projects.

It is quite common to plug in BI reporting tools to leverage your Jira data and collect them in proper dashboards. If you have BI tools already in use at your company, the marketplace does offer several connector apps for e.g. PowerBI or Tableau or ... If you don't, you could have a look at EazyBI to consolidate your BI reporting in Jira. Lots of options out there.

Hope this helps!

Hi @jordan.rowe 
Welcome to the Community!
You can take a look at eazyBI Demo reports to see examples of a few reports you could potentially create. Here is a dashboard example for Versions overview -

Here is a dashboard of Project overview - with an option to add more Projects for comparison. 

There are more tabs at the top of the page with more dashboard views if you are interested. 

Best wishes,
