Burndown data through Greenhopper REST API

I'm trying to collect Scrum team statistics and would like to include the number of points originally committed to a sprint (in effect, the value of the burndown chart at the start of the sprint).

I'm not seeing anything in the REST API to get that information... Is this some that needs to be calculated (e.g., number of completed issues plus punted issues)?

thanks for any insight.

hOW ABOUT something like rest/greenhopper/1.0/rapid/charts/scopechangeburndownchart?rapidViewId=1&sprintId=1




thanks for the tip there - the scopechangeburndownchart is helpful, though I need assistance with interpreting the values of returned information. The burndown charts themselves show "event type" and "event detail", but the scopechangeburndownchart API only returns newStatus, newValue and added.

Sounds like there's some calculation/inferences going on... is there a description of the returned values somewhere?


Hello Peter,

Have you found anything that helps interpreting the returned data?

Thanks in advance,

Hi, Peter you can find calculations to create burndown from API using this ruby code . I know it too late for me to answer this but may be it would help anyone else down the road.

which board are you using, classic or rapid ?

Using Rapid boards. thanks

have you tried rapid/charts/sprintreport

it has allissueseatimatesum returned along with completed and punted.

Hi, I am using classic board. Is there any rest api available to generate issue burndown chart?
