Overview of this book

Agile methodologies like Scrum focus on customer values in an incremental way. Regular planning, tracking, reporting, and improving can become equally challenging from a project management perspective. GreenHopper is a tooling support for JIRA that offers easy adoption of agile practices through rich interfaces for effective team collaboration and project management. Agile Project Management with GreenHopper 6 Blueprints is a step-by-step guide that teaches you how to manage agile projects using the GreenHopper tooling system. With easy adoption using pre-sets for Scrum & Kanban, the rich interface focuses on the work at hand, increasing team productivity. Executing sprints, tracking sprints, and reporting on agile projects has never been so easy. The integration with different development environments helps teams to focus on collaboration, communication, and continuous improvement. This book covers agile project management concepts using GreenHopper. You will learn about backlog management for your agile team, how to create projects and boards for your agile team, and how to create new backlog items, prioritize items, estimate backlog items, create sprints, and update technical task status and report on the same. You will learn everything you need to know about managing an agile project using GreenHopper and how to achieve the best value for your team.

Completing an Epic

An Epic is a big functionality of a product which is further broken down into stories. Stories are completed during a Sprint. Usually an Epic spans over multiple Sprints to get completed.

To see the details of an Epic, go to your team's Agile board. On the Plan mode, you will see the Epics panel. Click on the Epic under the Epics panel for which you want to see the current status.

The Epics panel displays your Epic's current status. As shown in the preceding screenshot, it is clear that all the issues assigned to the Epic are now complete and you can also mark the Epic as completed.

To mark the Epic as completed, click on Mark as Done in the drop-down selection option, as shown in the following screenshot:

Once you mark an Epic as done, it will no longer be available in the Epics panel. You will only be able to see the Epic details in the Epic Report screen.
