Check the progress of a version

You've been monitoring the progress of your sprints and keeping your team on track for each iteration. How do know if you are on track to deliver the version?

Jira Software provides a number of tools that you can use to monitor the progress of a version. These tools can help you see problems early, as well as determine the likelihood of releasing a version on time.

Release page

The release page helps you understand the status of work for your version at a point in time. It shows a summary and a breakdown of the issues in the version, grouped by status. If you have connected Jira Software to your development tools, the release page will show development information about pull requests, commits, builds, and deployments associated with your issues. The page also warns you if your development tools are out of sync with Jira Software — for example, completed issues with open pull requests, failing builds, or unreviewed code.

To view the release page:

  1. Go to your Jira Software project.

  2. Select Releases in the project menu.

  3. Click on a version to view the release page.

Release Burndown report

The 'Release Burndown' report helps you understand how your team is progressing towards the completion of the version. The report shows your team's velocity (relative to the current version), how scope changes have affected progress, and the estimated number of sprints needed to complete the remaining work.
