Enable reports

Are you on the right help page?

The following information only applies to next-gen projects.

To check which type project you need help with, look at the bottom of your project’s left-hand sidebar:

  • If you see an icon stating You’re in a next-gen project with Give feedback and Learn more menu items, you're in a next-gen project.

  • If you don't, you're in a classic project. Check out our classic project documentation.

Reporting helps you track and analyze your team's work throughout a project or sprint.

Enable reports for your next-gen software project

Only project admins can enable and disable features for their projects.

  1. Navigate to your next-gen software project.

  2. Go to Project Settings > Features.

  3. Enable the Reports feature.

View a report for your project

  1. Navigate to your next-gen project.

  2. In the project menu on the left, select Reports.

In next-gen projects, a report will only be available to view if there is enough data to show. For example, Burnup and Velocity reports won't be available if you don't have the Sprints feature enabled, because these reports show sprints data.

Reports available in next-gen Jira Software projects

Next-gen projects contain the following reports:

  • The burnup report tracks how your team did when comparing the work completed in a sprint with the work you planned to complete. It requires the Sprints feature to be enabled. Learn more about the burn up report.

  • The cumulative flow diagram helps you identify bottlenecks in your project’s work by showing how long issues stayed in each of your statuses. Learn more about the cumulative flow diagram.

  • The velocity report breaks down how much work your team was able to complete over a period of time to help you plan your next sprint. It requires the Sprints feature to be enabled. Learn more about the velocity report.

  • The sprint burndown chart shows how much work has been completed in a sprint against what’s remaining. It can help you predict and avoid scope creep. It requires the Sprints feature to be enabled. Learn more about the sprint burndown chart.

We'll continue to add more reports over time, as we add more functionality to next-gen Jira.
