This documentation relates to an older version 1.2 of the Rich Filters Add-on for JIRA. See the documentation index for other versions.

The Two-Dimensional Rich Filter Statistics Gadget

The Two-Dimensional Rich Filter Statistics Gadget is a two-dimensional version of the Rich Filter Statistics Gadget. It allows grouping issues on two axes, and computes statistics for each combination of values. It is similar to JIRA’s built-in Two-Dimensional Filter Statistics Gadget, but it is based on a rich filter instead of a JIRA saved search and thus adds several new features:

  • the collection of issues used for the statistics can be further filtered using Rich Filter Controller gadgets;
  • the gadget itself can refine the results by applying gadget-specific JQL we call Working Query;
  • the gadget can break down the results by a field or by a Smart Filter;
  • the value type displayed by the gadget can be customized (for instance, to show the sum of Story Points instead of the Issue Count);
  • the gadget’s title can be customized.

Configuring the Two-Dimensional Rich Filter Statistics Gadget

Add a new or edit an existing Rich Filter Controller Gadget in your JIRA dashboard. The configuration form of the gadget will be displayed:

Because this gadget groups issues on two criteria, some settings must be configured in pairs, one for each dimension: Statistic Type, Sort By, Sort Direction, Show Totals and Maximum Columns/Rows. In the gadget configuration form, these settings are grouped under the headings X Axis (which defines how the columns behave) and Y Axis (for the rows).

Edit the gadget configuration as described in the following table:

Setting Description
Title Optionally, you can customize the title of the gadget. If left blank, the default title will be 2D Rich Filter Statistics.
Rich Filter

Select the rich filter the gadget will use. This setting is required.

Click on the Rich Filter button to display the list of rich filters; you can either scroll through or use the search box to find the filter you need.

The gadgets’ configuration forms only show the rich filters you are allowed to view. See the section on permissions for details.

The link in the description line below the Rich Filter button opens a new page with the configuration of the selected rich filter.

Also, when the gadget is in display mode, you can navigate directly to the rich filter of the gadget using the Rich Filter option in the menu at the top right of the gadget.

Working Query The working query is a JQL query that is combined with the base filter of the rich filter before searching for issues. The working query is optional: if left empty, only the base base filter and the quick filters affect the issues displayed.
Statistic Type

Select the issue field or the smart filter on which the issues will be grouped. This setting is mandatory for both axes.

Sort By

Select how to sort the values of your Statistic Type on each axis:

  • Total: this will sort by the output value that matches each Statistic Type group.
  • Alphabetical: this will use alphabetical order for the Statistic Type groups.
  • Natural: this will use the issue field’s or smart filter’s native sorting order, i.e. the order that has been configured for the options of each field or smart filter.
Sort Direction Select whether the field values should be sorted in Ascending or Descending order.
Show Totals These settings control whether or not the gadget should show the totals on either axis.
Maximum Rows/Columns These settings limit the maximum number of rows and columns to display.
Values

Select the output type to be computed for each Statistic Type group. There are three kinds of possible values:

  • Issue Count: computes the number of issues in each group.
  • Time Tracking: computes the sum of one of the time-tracking fields (i.e. Original Estimate, Remaining Estimate, Time Spent) for all issues in each group.
  • Numeric: computes the sum of a numeric field for all issues in each group. For instance, if using JIRA Agile, the gadget can show how many Story Points there are for each Statistic Type group.
