Track the remaining work for a team

My requirement is to show the remaining work of the team after the Sprint is completed and track the value for past five Sprints. 

I would like to know is it possible to create a custom field , generate the value for the custom field using the JQL function and store them .

If i use above approach do i need to create custom field for every team ?

Let me know if there are any other better approach for this requirement


Currently i generate the remaining sum by running below query

issueFunction in aggregateExpression("Total Estimate for all Issues", "originalEstimate.sum()", "Remaining work", "remainingEstimate.sum()")  and issueFunction in previousSprint("Olympians Board for Story")

Hi @Manikandan K,

As you appear to be running a scrum board, have you considered looking at the default Jira reports for that purpose:

the Release Burndown Report

the Epic Burndown report (the same, but focused on a specific epic)

the Version report (which is slightly different, but forecasts your end date)

We tried above options and it doesnt provide us the required results as our teams are focusing on multiple Epics and different versions at the same time

I would like to have a report something like 

Team 1
Sprint                  1   2   3   4
Remaining work 50 40 35 20

Team 2
Sprint                  1   2   3   4
Remaining work 30 20 10 20

If you are using a single board, how do you define your different teams? 

@Walter Buggenhout [ACA IT]-We do have seven teams and each team using their own board

So each team can track its own report. Do you have different versions per team because teams work across different Jira projects in one board? Or is their a different reason for that (my last question to understand your situation, I think)?
