View and understand the epic report

Are you on the right help page?

The following information only applies to company-managed projects.

To check which 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 team-managed project with Give feedback and Learn more menu items, you're in a team-managed project. Check out our team-managed project documentation.

  • If you don’t, you're in a company-managed project.

The epic report, which has a y-axis indicating story points and an x-axis indicating time.

The Epic Report shows a list of complete, incomplete, and unestimated issues in an epic. It is particularly useful in planning work for an epic that may extend over multiple sprints.

Use the Epic Report to understand the progress towards completing an epic over time, and to track the amount of remaining work that's incomplete or unestimated.

Before you begin

This page only applies to Scrum boards.

  1. Click View in Issue Navigator to jump to the Issue Navigator and see a list of all the epic's issues.

Understanding the Epic Report

Before you start using the Epic Report, you should get to know how it works. The following information will help you understand the key functionalities of the Epic Report:

  • The Epic Report is based on your board's column mapping. An issue is considered to be 'To Do' when it is in a status that has been mapped to the left-most column of your board. Similarly, an issue is considered to be 'Done' when it is in a status that has been mapped to the right-most column of your board. See Configuring columns for more information.

  • The graph will look different if you are using Issue Count as your Estimation Statistic (rather than Story Points, as shown in the screenshot above).
