The Rich Filter Created vs. Resolved Chart Gadget

The Rich Filter Created vs. Resolved Chart Gadget displays the number of issues created vs. the number of issues resolved over a given period of time. It is similar to JIRA’s built-in Created vs. Resolved Chart 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 to display the graph 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’s title can be customized.

Configuring the Rich Filter Created vs. Resolved Chart Gadget

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


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 Rich Filter Created vs Resolved Chart.
Rich Filter

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 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 JIRA filter and the quick filters affect the issues displayed.
Time Intervals The length of the time intervals to be represented on the chart. It can be: Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly, or Yearly.
Number of Intervals The number of time intervals to be displayed in on the graph.
Display Type

It can be:

  • Count – shows the number of issues created and resolved during each individual interval.
  • Cumulative trend – starts from zero and progressively adds to each interval the values from the previous intervals. It includes only the issues created or resolved after the first interval represented on the graph.
  • Cumulative total – starts with the number of issues created or resolved before the first interval and progressively adds to each interval the values from the previous intervals. It includes all the issues returned by the filter, independently of their created or resolved dates.
Unresolved Trend

If checked, the graph will also include a sub-plot with the trend of unresolved issues over time.
