Cost Report

The Cost Report for Jira Server and Data Center displays costs for a period, based on hourly rates. You can also create and export a PDF invoice from the report.

This report is available for Accountants Groups users only (Auditors Groups if empty). If both settings are empty, the Cost Report is unavailable.

Setting Up the Cost Report

  1. With the Cost Report selected, choose Hourly Rates from the Configure menu.


  2. In the Hourly Rates window, set the rate for a user or group with a date and a particular project.


    All settings are optional. For example, a default rate can be set with an empty project. A rate of zero can be added for a user or group for a non-billable project.

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

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

  5. In the Currency field, add the symbol to be displayed in the report.

  6. Click Close and then refresh the report page to generate the report with your settings.
