1. About the Rich Filter Two Dimensional Statistics Gadget
The Rich Filter Two Dimensional Statistics gadget is a two-dimensional version of the Rich Filter Statistics Gadget. It allows grouping issues on two criteria, and computes statistics for combinations of statistic types. 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 further refine the results by applying a gadget-specific JQL that we call working query;
- the gadget can group the issues by an issue field or by a smart filter;
- the gadget can group the issues by the values of a date or date time field in order to compute daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly or yearly statistics;
- the result type displayed by the gadget can be customized (for instance, to show the sum of Story Points instead of the Issue Count);
- the user can change the sorting order by clicking on an icon next to the column or row name;
- the gadget can also display the data as a chart; the user can switch between the table view and the chart view by clicking on an icon.
Example: Story Points aggregated by the issue field Priority and a smart filter named High Level Status:
The labels and the colors displayed for High Level Status come from the clauses defined in the configuration of this smart filter.
2. Configuring the Rich Filter Two Dimensional Statistics Gadget
Edit the gadget configuration as described below:
Select the rich filter the gadget will use.
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 Rights and Permissions documentation page for details.
|Working query||The working query is an additional JQL query which is permanently applied on top of the base Jira filter and any active quick filters in the controller to further filter the issues the gadget will work with. The working query is optional: if left empty, only the base Jira filter and the quick filters affect the issues used by the gadget.|
|Two breakdowns need to be configured, one horizontal and one vertical. Below we describe the breakdown settings only once.|
Select the issue field or the smart filter on which the issues will be grouped. The drop-down list includes the smart filters defined in the selected rich filter:
For each of the two breakdowns (horizontal and vertical) there are two types of configuration, depending on the selected Statistic type:
a. Statistics on option fields (e.g. Priority, Status, select custom fields, etc.) or smart filters
b. Statistics on date or date time fields
2.a. Statistics on option fields or smart filters
The following breakdown settings are applicable, for each of the two breakdowns, when the selected Statistic type is an option field or a smart filter:
Select how to sort the values of your Statistic type:
|Reverse sort order||If checked, the sort order is reversed.|
These settings limit the number of rows and columns to display.
The user can still display all the computed rows/columns by clicking on the numbers of rows/columns in rounded rectangles located at the bottom right of the gadget.
|Show totals||If checked, the gadget displays the total values for the corresponding breakdown.|
2.b. Statistics on date fields
The following breakdown settings are applicable, for each of the two breakdowns, when the selected Statistic type is a date or a date time field:
Select the periods on which the issues will be grouped, according to the their values for the date or date time field selected as Statistic type.
The available options are: Days, Weeks, Months, Quarters, Years, Auto.
If the Auto option is selected, the aggregation periods and time range are adjusted dynamically to produce the most granular yet complete statistics (i.e. with the appropriate aggregation period so that all the relevant issues are included).
Together with its subsettings, this specifies the total time span for which the statistics should be computed.
The time range subsettings depend on the option selected in the Time range drop-down as described below.
|Time range||Time range subsetting||Description|
Number of periods
|Number of days / weeks etc.||Enter a number of periods. The time range corresponds to the specified number of consecutive aggregation periods.|
Select how the periods are positioned relative to the current period. The possible options are:
Fields like Created or Resolved always contain values that are in the past. Therefore you should always select Past for these fields as you will never find any issue created or resolved in the future.
Fields like Due Date contain values that can be both in the past and in the future. For this field it is more useful to select Future in order to see statistics for the issues that are due soon, or Past & Future to also see the statistics for overdue issues.
|From / To|
Enter the two dates that define the limits of the time range (both specified dates are inclusive).
The inputs can be selected from a date picker or entered manually as a calendar date ("
If selected, the time range is determined dynamically to include all the relevant issues (from the first date to the last date occurring in the values of the issues).
All dates is the only possible Time range option if the selected Aggregation period is Auto.
These are predefined Time range options which depend on the selected Aggregation period.
Possible options are: This year, Last year, This quarter, Last quarter, This month, Last month.
|Reverse sort order||If checked, the default chronological order is reversed.|
|Show totals||If checked, the gadget displays a row with the totals for each of the selected values.|
2.c. Statistics value
The value setting is applicable to all configurations:
Select the value to be computed for each Statistic type group. There are four kinds of possible values:
3. Quick Charts in the Rich Filter Two Dimensional Statistics Gadget
In addition to the main table view, the Rich Filter Two Dimensional Statistics gadget offers a chart view which displays the results as a chart. This chart, referred to as a quick chart, requires no additional configuration. You can switch between the table view and the chart view by clicking on the corresponding icon located at the bottom right of the gadget.
By default, a clustered bar chart is displayed. You can choose the chart type of the quick chart by selecting it in the corresponding field at the bottom of the gadget. You can also swap the primary and secondary breakdowns of the chart by clicking on the <> icon located between the breakdowns, at the bottom of the gadget.
The following chart types are currently available:
- Clustered bar chart
- Stacked bar chart
The maximum rows/cols setting applies to the quick charts as well.
Examples of 2D quick charts:
Clustered bar chart of Issue Count by Project:
Stacked bar chart of Time Spent by Issue Type and Priority:
