Conditional Metrics

Use Conditional Metric feature in Performance Objectives app to filter out or change certain values based on conditions.

The feature allows you to count Jira issues that meet certain conditions related to a selected metric, for example, issues with breached Resolution Time, tasks estimated with > 5 Story Points, etc.

In cases when the metric has positive and negative values like the Time Between ‘Due date’ and ‘Resolved’ as given on screen below, the Conditional expression can be set to filter out the negatives which may not be needed.

When you select Conditional metric in the Metric selection window and point to the Conditional expression line, a tooltip with some expression examples will appear, as shown below:
