How to calculate Story Point all the way up hierarchy? Edited

In our Jira project, we have issuetypes grouped by hierarchy. They are:

  • Program
  • Project
  • Initiative
  • Epic
  • Story

Stories are where points are given. I'd like to be able to report from a Program level, the total number of Story Points completed vs. Story Points Not Completed. In Jira I have a filter using "issuekey in childIssuesOf". 

Is there a similar way to do this in eazyBI?

Hi @Nitin Joshi ,

You could take a look at apps like: sumUp These will do most of the have lifting, you just need to configure it.

I do wonder what the benefit is of summing story point from different teams. All teams have a different velocity and a different way of estimating. In some teams a story point could be an equivalent of an hour while in others it could be a day. Does summing these up make sense for you at the Program level?

Thanks Rudy for the feedback.  Yes summing up works as we have a consistent policy across all Squads on estimating. But my issue is with eazyBI, I can get the info in the Jira Gadgets but I'd like to create a living Dashboard in eazyBI that I can share with management and they can drill down as they please.

Ok, sorry Nitin. I can't help you out there. You might want to post the same question into the eazybi community as they seem to be expert on the matter. 

However this post might steer you in the right direction, although you need to do some more scripting for establishing your hierarchy.



Such a use case in eazyBI can be resolved when you build the custom issue hierarchies using the issue links. Please, find the documentation on how to do that:


This feature of eazyBI requires a bit of configuration, so, please apply for the support once you need any assistance. Note also, that if you use the Jira Portfolio, the hierarchy will be built automatically when you select the Parent Link field for import.

Once you have the custom hierarchy, the measures are aggregated automatically


Janis, eazyBI support
