Cycle Time by Story Point Reporting

Hi -

Is there a way to generate a chart that shows cycle time on the y axis and story points on the x axis? Specifically, I would like to use this report in order to better understand the maturity of different teams when it comes to accuracy in pointing stories.

This type of report is a standard feature of Rally but I haven’t found a good way to do this inside Jira yet.


Hi @Joel_Orcutt,

To group results by Story Points size, you might want to import Story Point values as dimension.
Please see community topics on a similar use case and how to do this:

Hello @zane.baranovska Hope you can help again please because I’m conscious your response was 4yrs ago so I’m hoping it’s a lot easier than the workarounds above. If not, please let me know.

Very similar to the first post, I would like to have the different Fibonacci story points on the y axis (i.e. 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21 etc) and then on the x axis, the number of days to transition from a specific status to another. This will then reveal, hopeful in a control chart kind of graph outliers for each story point but an average for the majority of the tickets with that specific story points value.

Is there a way to achieve this please?

Hi @Tosin_Ojikutu,

The principle would remain the same as in related topics.

  1. Import “Story Points” as a dimension. You can do this in Jira import options (Custom field import options)
    Here is the Community post providing detailed instructions on how to do this:
    Number of issues with "x" story points - #3 by ilze.leite

  2. Import After data import, set the new dimension “Story Points” on report rows to group metrics by story point values.

  3. On report columns, select measure "Average days in transition status" and dimension “Tranistion Status”.

  4. Represent data in a Bar chart.
