How do I create a key result in Profit to track epic progress based on the % of issues(task, bug, story) from Jira epics?

Create a Jira Epic as a Key Result

Profit.co for Jira plug-in allows you to automatically create your Jira epic as a key result under any of your OKRs in Profit.co. You can track the progress of the linked OKR in your Jira epic.

Link Tasks% KPI to the Key Result

Once you select a Jira epic to be added as a key result in Profit, the next step is to select the Jira KPI based on which you want to track your key result progress. One way to understand epic progress is based on the percentage of child issues completed.
