Cost Report

The Cost report for Jira Cloud costs for a certain period based on the hourly rates. You can also create and export a PDF invoice from the report.

  3. Select + to lock in the settings and add a new line to add another rate with different settings optionally.

  4. Check the Hide Rate Column if you do not want to display the Hourly Rate column in the report.
