How can I view or report on bugs over time using JIRA?

NPower Dec 03, 2012


I would like to be able to report on various metrics during a specific time frame:

1. Number of improvement/enhancements/new features released

2. Number of bugs/issues reported

3. Number of issues reopened

4. Number of bugs fixed

I would like to report on this on either a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis over the past 2 years and see a trend.

Is there any easy way to do this using JIRA? I also have GreenHopper installed.

Some tips that I got from atlassian support:

Hi Izumi,

You can achieve that by manually create a filter for it in JQL specifying the date / status / type / user or any other condition you want to check. After that, you can export your result to a chart or an Excel / Word / etc.

I also suggest you to take a look into this plugin, maybe it will be more helpful to achieve what you need:

Hope that helps. Let me know how it goes and if you need any further help.

You can create a JQL like this one:

project = "Project X"AND created >= 2012-12-01 AND created <= 2012-12-31

And then export the result to a chart or a report.

But note this will show just the issues from the "Project X" (you need to change it to your project) and from December.
And I know that's a simple query, but that's why I suggested you the eazyBI plugin. The bundled charts from JIRA and the options with the JQL are very restricted to what you need to achieve.
If you want to check our documentation regarding JQL, you can find it here.

Please try eazyBI reports and charts plugin for JIRA. You can easily create custom reports using issues created, due and resolved measures and using any standard or custom custom JIRA fields as dimensions in these reports. Time dimension in reports support both year/quarter/month/day hierarchy as well as year/week/day hierarchy. Created reports and charts can be published also as JIRA dashboard gadgets.

Hi Izumi,

You can also check out the Intelligent Reports plugin. It can easily generate charts and data for these metrics in Microsoft Word format.
