Jira Align Power-Up for Trello

Topics in this article:

Overview

The Jira Align power-up adds the following fields to your Trello cards:

  • Work Item Type (drop-down, options of Story, Feature, or Defect). This means you can have a combination of stories, features, and defects on one board.
  • Points (number field)
  • Owner (drop-down)

Manage Trello cards

When you create a card in Trello, it displays on the Jira Align Kanban board in the same column and position. If you archive the card in Trello, the card is archived on the Jira Align board as well.

When you set a work item type on the back of a card, the card displays a badge on its front, indicating the work item type and the card’s point score, where applicable.

View the Cumulative Flow Diagram

The Cumulative Flow Diagram lets you visualize the amount of work in each state, and how quickly work items move from one state to another. The format is a stacked line graph, where each line represents the number of items in the Not Started, In Progress, and Completed states over the last 30 days.

Navigation and setup

To access the Cumulative Flow Diagram:

  1. From the upper-right of the board, click the Jira Align button.
  2. In the list of options that displays, select Cumulative Flow Diagram.

The Cumulative Flow Diagram displays. To set up the report:

  1. In the Not Started List dropdown menu, select one or more lists on your board to represent work that hasn’t begun yet.
  2. In the Completed List dropdown menu, select one or more lists on your board to represent work that has finished.
  3. In the Work Item Type dropdown menu, select one or more work item types to display on the chart: either features, stories, or defects.
  4. The Cumulative Flow Diagram updates to reflect the specified settings.

How are report values calculated?

Data for each day on the chart is captured at midnight in the timezone of the user who added the power-up to the board. Because data is captured at the very end of the day, the first points on the chart won’t appear until the day after the power-up is added.

Not Started = number of cards with the specified Work Item Type in Not Started List(s)

In Progress = number of cards with the specified Work Item Type in any lists that weren’t specified as Not Started or Completed Lists

Completed = number of cards with the specified Work Item Type in Completed List(s)

View the Burnup Chart

The Burnup Chart lets you visualize the completion status of a set of work items. The horizontal axis represents time, while the vertical axis represents the story points completed.
