The Rich Filter Time Series Chart gadget displays time series as line charts. The gadget is based on a rich filter and works as follows:
- the collection of issues used for the charts can be furthered filtered using Rich Filter Controller gadgets;
- the gadget itself can further refine the results by applying a gadget-specific JQL that we call working query;
- the gadget can display together several time series as line charts in order to point out trends and hint at correlations between these;
- the gadget can display results based on different values types, like the number of issues (Issue Count) or the sum of number fields (such as Story Points);
- the gadget’s title can be customized.
Rich Filter Extensions
Rich filter extensions are separate Jira apps that can be installed on top of the Rich Filters for Jira Dashboards app to extend the rich filters and rich filter gadgets with new specific functionality.
New time series options are available if you add any of the these extensions:
Rich Filters::Time Tracking Dashboards allows you to display time series based on Worklog Date and Worklog Time Spent and to apply additional work log filters
Rich Filters::Service Desk Dashboards allows you to display time series based on SLA fields and values: SLA Completed, Met, Breached, %Met, %Breached, or Average
