Created vs Resolved vs Any Date

The Created vs Resolved report is widely used by Jira users through the built-in Atlassian Created vs. Resolved Chart gadget. Many marketplace apps also offer custom issue analysis reports to show comparison between created and resolved issues within a certain period.  

However, Performance Objectives: Charts for Jira takes it a step further by offering the ability to compare more than two date fields. Thus, our app stands out with its extensive range of customization options, providing enhanced flexibility, valuable insights and better reporting experience.

In this section, we’ll explore two different visualizations for Jira issue data. First, we’ll use the Performance Trend gadget to analyze correlations between date events stored in your Jira issues. Build Created vs Resolved issues analysis report and expand it with any other date events that may be of interest to compare. Choose between line and area chart for your data visualization.

Report by Multiple Date Fields in Jira: Created vs Resolved chart Jira Dashboard

Please find below the configuration steps for setting up Created vs Resolved vs Any Date Field Report with the Performance Trend dashboard gadget:

Step 1: Add a Data Source and select the date range based on the ‘Created’ date field.

Step 2: Add another Data Source, this time based on the ‘Resolved’ date field, covering the same period. You can do this by clicking on add date source or by copying the first one and editing only the date field and custom name accordingly. Repeat this process for any other date fields you want to analyze, like ‘Due date’, as specified in the provided sample configuration.

Step 3: Choose the ‘Range Date‘ field for ‘Display by.’ This unique field synchronizes all values from the defined date fields in the data sources onto the same x-axis timeline. In this sample case, we use Jira issue date fields: ‘Created’, ‘Resolved’, and ‘Due date’.

Step 4: For ‘Group by’ set the Data Source option to display distinctive trends for each data source based on its corresponding date field used for the Date Range.

Step 5: (Optional) Choose between Line or Area chart.

Step 6: (Optional) Select the ‘Cumulative mode’, which accumulates the data with each x-axis item.
