Reporting EazyBI on Epics child issues

I have a large project in Jira, with many Epics.  Within some of the Epics are their child Issues - mine are called "Ideation" or "Workstream", which also have subtasks.  Some of the Epics don't have child issues in them.

I would like to create a report that shows for a given time period:

  1. Show me a list of Epics with their status and also display the child issues under them, with status
  2. Some Epics don't have child issues.- show these as well.

Hi Stu, 

You may use Issue dimension Epic hierarchy to create such a report. Epic hierarchy appears if you have imported Epic Link in eazyBI.

Use this dimension in the report rows (Epic level members); you can expand those epics to stories (parents) to sub-tasks.
In columns, you may want to use "Issues created" to show all epics as well as issue property "Issue status" to display each issue (epic, story, sub-task) current status.

Hope it would help you to create the report! 


Hi Ilze,

Thanks for the detailed response.  I'll give it a go and report back.


thanks it worked

hi! How could I unify stories from different projects in this report?

For instance I have 5 stories from project A belonging to epic PHXM-166 and I have 1 story from project B belonging to epic PHXM-166. As a result epic in the table is doubled and stories from different projects are hanging under different entries for the same epic: 


In the Issue dimension Epic hierarchy, issues primary are grouped by their project. Consequently, the epic is displayed under each project it has at least one linked issue (i.e. linked with the epic link).

Though, you may want to define and import a new custom hierarchy in the Issue dimension to group all issues primary by their epics without projects. Here is an example of how to import such a hierarchy:




I am new to EasyBI...

How can I remove Sub-Tasks from the above report?



Hi @Ofer Cohen 

You may want to add, in Pages, the "Issue Type" dimension and select "Issue Types by type" hierarchy, value Standard.

Then values from sub-task issues won't be included in the report at all and, if [nonempty] is enabled, sub-task issues won't be displayed in the report rows.

@Ilze Leite-Apine 

Is there a way to display the number of the status on the issues? (My question is similar to this report as it requires fixversion filtering, but I think even for this report to find out how the calculated member would be queried will help a lot)

Thank you!

You can update the report Ilze made above removing Issue status from Measures. Then add a Status dimesion on Columns. Status dimension will split issues in epic by their status.

You can add Issue Type dimension to Pages and select (filter) which issues should be counted there.
