This documentation relates to version 1.15 of Rich Filters for Jira Dashboards. Documentation for previous versions is available via the documentation index.
The Rich Filter Pie Chart gadget displays the collection of issues grouped by a specific field/criteria as a pie chart. It is similar to Jira’s built-in Pie 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 for the statistics 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 break down the results by an issue 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 supports multiple display layouts;
- 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 statistic options are available if you add any of the these extensions:
Rich Filters::Service Desk Dashboards allows you to display pie charts based on Service Desk specific fields – Customer Request Type and Organizations
Configuring the Rich Filter Pie Chart Gadget
Edit the gadget configuration as described in the following table:
|Optionally, you can customize the title of the gadget. If left blank, the default title will be Rich Filter Pie Chart.|
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.
|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.|
Pie charts are ideally suited to visual representation of statistics that split issues into separate categories. In Jira, they work best if they are applied to single-value fields, or to smart filters with mutually exclusive clauses. Although you can use them with multi-valued fields, the resulting pie chart will be more difficult to interpret.
Insert a numeric value between 2 and 10 to choose the maximum number of slices displayed by the gadget. If the value is empty, then the gadget will display a maximum of 10 slices.
If there are more statistic values than this limit, the smallest slices are collapsed into a single Other slice.
|Sort slices by|
Select how to sort the slices of your Pie Chart:
Special slices such as Other or None, if they exist, are always displayed at the end.
Select the output type to be computed for each Statistic Type group. There are five kinds of possible values:
In Jira, numeric fields can also store negative values. The Rich Filter Pie Chart Gadget treats the negative values as zero.
You can chose one of several layouts to display the results:
