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.

Before you begin

This page only applies to classic Scrum projects.

Release Hub

The Release Hub 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. In addition, if you have connected Jira Software to your development tools, this page also warns you if your development tools are out of sync with Jira Software — for example, completed issues with open pull requests, completed issues with failing builds, completed issues that have unreviewed commits, etc.

  1. Go to your Scrum project.

  2. Click Releases > your desired version.

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.

Status Report

If you have Confluence linked to Jira Software and you need to provide status reports to external stakeholders, you can generate a 'Status Report' in Confluence that displays the progress of a version. See Jira Report Blueprint (Confluence documentation).
