If the image in the lower-left of your project sidebar states you're in a next-gen project, check out these next-gen project articles instead. 

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 is useful for your Sprint Retrospective meetings, and also for mid-sprint progress checks.

If you have Jira Software 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 sub-tasks are not included in the Sprint Report. (Only estimates on parent issues are included.)

Viewing the Sprint Report 

  1. Click Projects in the navigation bar and select the relevant project

  2. Click Reports then select Sprint Report

  3. Select the relevant sprint from the sprint drop-down

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.

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

  • 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 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.
