i have an issue with 5 subtasks. Only one of them is resovled. The progress bar shows half of them resolved (see screenshot).
Have you encountered this weird counting of unresolved subtask progress bar?
Is there a way how to correct this progress bar?
It seems, that is a bug introduced with Jira 5. I can remember seeing the correct percentage in green in Jira 4.4, but with 5.0.6 and 5.1.2 there seem to be only the following three states:
Hi, I don't think the progress bar actually says how many are resolved, but in total where things are at to completion. It is saying out of your 5 subtasks, you are on average 50% complete in terms of getting to the end of the workflow.
I had this confusion before too.
Hi, as in it measures your current progress as an average of all the issues to the destination.
E.g. if you had 5 subtasks, and your workflow requires 10 steps to the destination status (Approved in this case). Now if you each of you have 5 subtasks on average still have 5 steps before it reaches the destination, it is considered 5/10 as there are 5 out of 10 steps remaining. I assume it calculates this based on a direct path it can make to the destination.
You can expriment with this as a test. Create a few subtasks - if they are currently just created your progress is 0. As soon as you change the status of a subtask, the progress changes.
At least that's how I've seen this unless an Atlassian developer can expose the proper algorithm. I definitely agree this should be documented somewhere.
