I'm looking to get the following data for a given date range:

  • Release Date
  • Release Version
  • Number of Stories
  • Number of Bugs

I understand that it's easy to get this information one release at a time by using the Releases area, however in order to get the information above, you need to drill into each release. I'm looking to get this information in the form of "rows of data"

For lack of available tags: Jira Cloud

The easiest way is to simply highlight the releases that you want and then open in Issue Navigator.

Export Method

Simply export as an XLS specifying the columns that you require.

Failing that, export all columns and simply delete the redundant ones.

Command Method

If you are seeking that information within JIRA itself without an export than you are going to require a few nifty JIRA SQL commands which you can save as a filter.

I will update later with the exact commands but for now you can find a wealth of information in the JQL overview by Atlassian.


The commands that you require are:

project = INSERTPROJECTHERE AND issuetype in (Bug, Story) AND fixVersion = "INSERTVERSIONHERE"

Or you can try

project = INSERTPROJECTHERE AND issuetype in (Bug, Story) AND status was Resolved during (INSERTSTARTDATE, INSERTENDDATE)

Dashboard Method

Create a dashboard, or add to an existing dashboard the widget Issue Statistics and then specify the date range that you require. It will pull in all releases, bugs and stories during that period.

  • Would any of these methods get me rows of data in this format though: date,version,stories,bugs 1/1/2017,v1.2.0.0,6,2 Jan 24, 2017 at 20:15
  • HI David, they will be exported in tabular format, yes. How you then display that tabled information in a spreadsheet program is up to you (columns, rows, pivot table, etc). Simply go to the Issue Navigator, select Export and then select the columns and simply choose the columns you require. Jan 24, 2017 at 20:32
  • @BrianDavidBerman give those new commands a try that I updated the answer with. Jan 25, 2017 at 10:58

    BrianDavidBerman If you just want this "in JIRA" as opposed to being exported you can always just take the filter suggested by @Venture2099 and make it a saved filter, then share it with the person who needs it. This has the added advantage of being dynamically updated.

depending on the permission you have to access the JIRA board you should have an option to expand more filters and select date filter (CreateDate in my case for example). notice I am also not able to access 192 hidden filters.

you should be able to filter something like below.
