This project creates some pictures based on jira data and uploads the resulting html report to confluence. These should allow squads to gain some insight into their development cycle. Hopefully provoking discussions on improving the flow of work.


  1. get Jira Access Token
  2. Run script against project


echo -n Username:Password | base64
sh ./ <randombase64hash> TS PUBLISH


Build docker containers

The report container takes an especially long time to build

  • docker build -t jirar-report report
  • docker build -t jirar-extract extract

Setup config

The first time is run, it copies three example config files. These need updating with your details.

The first: needs the url of the rest-endpoint for Jira and Confluence

The second: extract/boardList.js is a mapping from jira project keys to boardIds. Instuctions are in the example file

The third: extract/customFields.js is to define fields to extract beyond the named jira fields. Three fields are defined from our boards and described in the Examples section below. If you have similar fields, change the link in this file.

You may manually create these config files before the first run by removing the .example suffix from the filenames and populating them yourself.
