How to build it

To build this report start with the table view. Add the Time dimension in Rows, select the "Day" level from the default hierarchy to see the information at day level In Pages select dimension "Sprint" for filtering. When the sample report is created in eazyBI, eazyBI automatically selects the first active sprint with report measures for filtering. 

In the Measures dimension, select measures Time within Sprint and filter the report rows by this measure value with the condition ">0": 

  • Time within Sprint - measure shows if the selected time period is within a sprint time period (from the sprint actual start date to the planned sprint end date or today if sprint was not completed in time for the active sprint, or till actual end date for completed sprints). The measure shows value 1 if the current Time dimension period (typically, days on rows) is within a selected Sprint (typically on pages).

After the filter is applied, remove the measure "Time within Sprint" from the report view, the filter still is active and will filter days from the Time dimension when the sprint was in progress.

Then unselect default measure "Issues created" and add other measures: 

  • Story Points resolved - the total story points from all resolved issues in the period
  • Cumulative Story Points resolved - cumulative sum by Time dimension of Story Points resolved. Used with the Time dimension Day level, it shows up the burn-up of resolved story points.
  • Story Points remaining - the remaining story points by the Time dimension are calculated as the total Story Points scope ("Story Points history" measure) minus the "Cumulative Story Points resolved" measure. Used with Time dimension, shows remaining Story points at the end of a selected time period.
  • Sprint Story Point guidelineSprint Story Points guideline shows ideal Story Points resolution guidelines in working days for a selected sprint.

Add standard calculation linear trend to measure "Story Points remaining", new measure Linear trend Story Points remaining is created. 

To show this report as a chart switch to Line chart and for measure "Story Points resolved" change the chart type to the column. For measures "Cumulative Story Points resolved" and "Story Points remaining" change chart type to spline. For measures "Sprint Story Point guideline" select dashed line and disable the symbolChange colors for measures in the report. Add a description to the report.
