Which statistics to get from JIRA and how to do so?


We started using JIRA/JIRA Agile for some months and we would like to get some information about how we are doing.

We are using JIRA for a project development, not ticket management tool.

Which kinds of statistics could we use?

How to get them?

Is there any way to generate customized reports from JIRA?

Check out eazyBI report creation plugin for JIRA.

With eazyBI you can create custom reports based on JIRA data. Please see some example reports in our documentation and let me know if you have any additional questions about eazyBI or specific reports.
You can contact me directly on 

Kind regards,

Hi, It really seems a nice tool, congratulations. But more important would be: what kind of statistics are used to check the quality of a team's work?

There are many standard Measures that are created during data import to eazyBI (see https://docs.eazybi.com/display/EAZYBIJIRA/Data+model#Datamodel-Measures) as well as you can create custom Measure calculations by defining the formula (see https://docs.eazybi.com/display/EAZYBI/Calculated+members). Is Team a custom field in JIRA? Then it could be imported as dimension and you could use any measure to aggregate that by Team dimension. Or are the Teams organised by JIRA groups? In this case please see example report https://docs.eazybi.com/display/EAZYBIJIRA/Reports+using+JIRA+user+groups. You are welcome to sign up for eazyBI free trial to test reports with your data and I can help you with report creation based on your needs. Regards, Lauma

Hi, The real question is: independent of technology to create the reports, what metrics are important to verify the quality of a team's work and its improvement?

Hi Oscar, eazyBI offers technology where you can define what Measures over what dimensions you wish to analyze. I will let somebody else answer what the analyzed measures should be. Let me know though if you have any additional questions regarding eazyBI report creation. Kind regards, Lauma

Have you tried Weekdone visual dashboards? See https://blog.weekdone.com/generate-a-stunning-visual-atlassian-jira-reporting-dashboard/ or install it from https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.weekdone.atlassian-connect.jira

It's a quick and simple set it and forget it solution to get weekly (or any other period) team reports, just like you ask for. The best thing is, you get them regularly daily, weekly or monthly via e-mail as HTML and PDF in case you don't want to check the web interface. 

Here are some samples:
