Time in Status

Time in Status Overview


Time in Status app (from OBSS Marketplace Partner) is used to identify bottlenecks in the business processes by allowing users to easily create reports on issues that show how much time each issue spent on each status, assignee, or group. This information is critically important when building complex reporting for business analytics purposes. Thus, being able to export Time is Status data to SQL databases is a commonly used feature in SQL Connector for Jira.

Time in Status fields are located in a separate Time In Status tab.
