Syncing Epic Status custom field with the JIRA Workflow

One challenge we faced at Twitter was understanding how much time it took to complete an epic. JIRA Agile/Software decoupled the status of an epic from the actual workflow. Thus we couldn’t simply look at a control chart to discern cycle time as the epic never moved through a workflow.

In this whitepaper I detail how we synced the Epic Status custom field with the workflow and understood the cycle time of epics in our organisation.
