How can I report issues in JIRA Software? / What are the alternative ways to report issues in JIRA Software?




You can use in product ‘Reports’ to report an activity that you do throughout your project. JIRA Software has various reports that you can use to show information about your project, versions, epics, sprints, and issues. Refer to the documentation for information on how to create a report, various reports for scrum projects, Kanban projects and available in Confluence.


JIRA provides the ability to display summary information about project/issue data on the dashboard, by using 'gadgets'. You can configure gadget to display project and issue details relevant to particular users. Add gadgets to the dashboard — providing a central location for quick access to this information. Refer here for the list of dashboard gadgets.


You can use JIRA Query Language (JQL) to create quick filters that allow you to see exactly what you need in a single click. Filter by any variety of criteria, so long as that data is captured in a field!

Note: We do not offer custom reporting, although we would encourage you to check our JIRA REST API. You might be able to create a custom report for yourself. Alternatively, you can contact one of our Atlassian Experts. These are professional services providers that we work and partner closely with who can provide you with a variety of services, including custom report building. You can search for an Expert based on services rendered and location.
