The Derby Overview provided by Jira shows issue counts and reports by component, issue type, developer, etc. Below are some additional reports for use in the Derby Project.

Jira Maintenance Reports

These reports assist with Jira Maintenance and help ensure that other reports are correct. In addition to developers periodically reviewing these reports for accuracy , it is helpful when logging and and updating issues to double check Status, Resolution, Affects Version, Fix Version, Priority, Component, Assignee, and Derby Info fields. Derby relies on community bug review (maintenance by individual developers) to keep Jira up to date.
