Workload pie chart with story points

I want to create a workload pie chart gadget based on story points instead of time estimates, as our project uses story points to estimate tasks. I did not find such an option (the dropdown menu of the workload pie chart gadget shows time remaining, not story points remaining).

Currently this is an open request to have story points based charts and gadgets

How's this coming?

We've recently released this feature on our app Custom Charts for Jira.

You can now create pie, bar and funnel charts showing the number of Story Points.

You can try the app right now on our free interactive playground.

There are lots of other features in Custom Charts including re-arranging the order of segments, changing the colors, renaming, hiding options and more!

I hope that's what you are looking for.

@Atlassian @jira  is it possible to do workload graph or chart for a sprint based on story points yet? not seeing anything fruitful in the responses above. 

This is a critical feature that is needed by your clients.


Custom Charts for Jira is a paid add-on.  Has Atlassian added this basic functionality?

In other words ... no Atlassian has not yet taken any action on this 6 year old request and it doesn't look like there is any interest in adding it so .... we are forced to build our own solutions.

I find it strange when story points seem to be fundamental to agile that there are not basic gadgets for pie/bar charts for a sprint that can group by epic or label.

@atlassian, this is a great example of why people are migrating away from Jira and Confluence. 

  • Critical tools for basic Agile are hidden behind additional pay-walls. 
  • Story Points are nearly useless everywhere but sprint planning, and that corner of Jira is 80%+ your users, but hasn't been improved in nearly 10 years. (except added layers behind additional pay walls)

This is seriously irking me:

  • Agile Roadmap? double the fee.
  • Story Point charts and reports? double the fee, or buy a barely helpful addon from the marketplace.
  • Track features seperate from Epics? double the fee

If you want to keep your users, it's time to adapt, and drop your habit of paid stick-on bandaids.

It gets better. Want to display your charts in Confluence? That's also a separate product with its own price tag.


No thanks.

Yeah, I'm starting to notice that all the reports and charts I want will be easier, and more cost effective, to DIY in tools like GSheets. Should I spend 2 hours, and get a reusable report that's exactly what I need, or over $1k a year for something that kinda does what I want?

This story points graphs are an out-of-the-box functionality in Azure DevOps, I really like Atlassian, but this does not make any sense.

Much as I tend to dislike M$ products, Atlassian doesn't appear interested in their products shipping with the basic functionality you'd want as an Agile team manager or scrum master.

I would not, at this point, recommend anyone start a project with Atlassian products. Using Azure DevOps seems like the way to go.

It is inconceivable to me that you can't create a pie chart based on story points.


Like I HAVE to be missing something


If this is true then Atlassian, next could I get a car without a steering wheel please?
