Insights (Reports)

All the reports are available in the Reports section of Release Board. Here’s the list what we support at the moment:

Reports for Versions

Version Burnup

Available for fixVersions only, not the Virtual versions.

Version burnup report helps you track version scope changes and development progress over time. It also allows highlighting expected or unexpected scope changes and version progress trend towards expected release date. 

Report configuration

User can choose any version in the board using version selector:

Available units are:

  • Issue Count

  • Story Points

  • Original time estimate

User can adjust report output via custom JQL queries:

Few popular Use Cases:

  • New features and technical improvements burnup: issueType in (Epic, Story, Task) 

  • Exclude sub-tasks: issueType in standardIssueTypes()

  • Burnup for assignee: assignee was <user_name>

Also, user can choose from additional drawing options:

  1. Draw version from the start date. If the option is enabled, the report is drawn from the version start date. Otherwise, from the date when the first item was added into the version. 

The option is not available if version start date is empty.

Report output

1. Total scope of the version is calculated on a daily base in selected units

2. “Done” scope of the version

3. Guideline. Shows ideal burnup rate in order to complete version in time. 

Guideline is only available if Start and Release dates are specified.

4. Start date. Indicates version start date

5. Release date. Indicates version release date

Export to CSV

Total scope and amount of “Done” items could be exported in CSV format in case you want to build a more sophisticated view with XLS or Google Spreadsheets.

The resulted document structure is:

1 2 "Date","Total","Completed" "2019/10/28","87","16"

Available for fixVersions only, not the Virtual versions.

This report helps to outline “scope change” and “done items“velocity trends of the version. 

Report configuration

    2. Story points

    3. Original time estimate

  4. JQL. The report content could be adjusted via custom JQL function.

  5. Done items switcher. Turn on/off done items trend (meaning: version velocity)

  6. Scope change switcher. Turn on/off scope change trend. 

  7. Draw from start date. If the option is enabled, the report is drawn from the version start date. Otherwise, from the date when the first item was added into the version. 

    The option is not available if version start date is empty.

Few popular Use Cases:

  • Bugs trend report: issueType=Bug (Units: Issue count)

  • Version velocity: issueType in standardIssueTypes() (Units: Any)

  • Business value delivered trend: issueType in (Task, Story, Epic) (Units: Issue count or Story Points)

  • Performance per person: assignee was <user_name> (Units: Any)

Report content

The report has the following content:

  1. Period of the data aggregation. The values are calculated by the formula: <# of items in period>= <# of items at the end of the period> - <# of items at the start of the period> +1 day 

  2. Scope change trend line.

  3. Velocity trend line.

  4. Scope change and velocity for the current period are outlined with a dotted line.

Reports for Packages

Package Burnup

Package burnup chart is similar version burnup though provides some additional sophisticated features for Release Managers to use. It consists of two main parts:

  1. Cumulative package progress. The chart shows the cumulative scope and progress for all the versions in the package on a daily base

  2. Individual versions progress. Separate charts for each version in the package. 

Report logic is the same comparing to versions burnup.

If you click on “Draw from Start Date“ both cumulative and individual versions burn ups will be adjusted and depicted from package start date. Thus you can see what specific versions contributed to scope / progress change on daily basis.

Package trends report is similar to version trends report. It consists of two main parts:

  1. Cumulative trends for all version in the package. 

  2. Separate trends for individual version in the package. 

Package Status Report

Package status report helps users to understand the overall status of the package and all its included versions.

The following information about the package and its versions is available:

  • Status

  • Issues progress

  • Start date

  • Release date

User can select any package available in the Release Board using the Package selector:
