View and understand the sprint report

This page applies to company-managed projects only.

Learn more about the difference between company-managed and team-managed projects.

A sprint report, with a y-axis to show the number of issues and an x-axis to indicate time. A red line tracks progress.

The Sprint Report shows the list of issues in each sprint. It's useful for your Sprint Retrospective meetings, and also for mid-sprint progress checks.

If you have Jira connected to Confluence, you can create a 'Retrospectives' page via the Linked pages link. See Linking a Confluence page to a sprint for details.

Before you begin

  • This page only applies to Scrum boards.

  • Estimates on subtasks are not included in the Sprint Report (only estimates on parent issues are included).

Viewing the Sprint Report 

  1. Select Projects in the navigation bar, then select the relevant project.

  2. Select Reports, then Sprint Report.

  3. Select the relevant sprint from the sprint dropdown.

Understanding the Sprint Report

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

  • The Sprint Report is board-specific — that is, it will only include issues that match your board's saved filter.

  • Below the report, the sprint’s issues are listed based on their completion. Under ‘Completed Issues’, the ‘Story Points' column indicates how many story points your team completed during the sprint. If it’s displayed with two values and an arrow between them (ie. 3 → 3.5), this indicates that story point estimation was adjusted during the sprint.

  • Issues added after the sprint starts are indicated with an asterisk.

  • An issue is considered ‘To Do' when it’s in a status that’s mapped to the left-most column of your board. Similarly, an issue is considered ‘Done' when it’s in a status that’s mapped to the right-most column of your board. See Configuring columns for more information.

  • The grey line is a guideline that's drawn from the total estimate of the issues at the start of the sprint, to 0 at the end of the sprint. The grey line stays flat during non-working days.

  • The red line represents actual work done during the sprint — it's drawn from the total estimate of the issues at the start of the sprint, and it goes higher or lower as your team works on the issues in the sprint. Note that the red line shows the current total estimate for unresolved issues at any point in the sprint. It also reflects issues that are added or removed from the sprint.

  • If your board is configured to track remaining estimates and time spent, a green line will display in the Sprint Report, indicating work logged on issues.

  • You can also see the Opsgenie alert chart for your software project. The project admin can enable Display alert counts in sprint report by navigating to Project settings > Opsgenie. Read more about working with Opsgenie.
