Cycles in assignee

Track the number of cycles or how many times Jira issues get assigned to one or any of multiple users. Break down the metric by assignee history or status history and understand more about the back-and-forth cases that slow down the issue resolution. Set goals for particular users or a group of users, such as ‘First Contact Resolution’ or ‘Max 2 cycles on avg. per issue in assignee ‘.

Get these data directly on you Jira dashboard using ‘Circular chart’ gadget.

Other new fields options that are available after ‘Cycles in assignee’ metric selection are:

  • Status (history) – field shows the cycles by the status to which issues were transitioned over time.
  • Status change date – shows the metric by the historic moment of status change. That breaks down the cycles in assignee by status and helps identifying patterns in the metric movement over time.
  • Assignee change date – shows the metric by the historic moment of assignee change. It allows to build “Cumulative Flow” diagram by cycles in assignee.
  • First date in assignee / Last date in assignee – these date fields may be used in ‘Time between’, ‘Time since’ metrics in addition, like given in ‘Time in assignee‘ article.

The ‘Cycles in assignee‘ metric is available in dashboard gadgets “Performance objectives”, “Performance trend”, “Multi metric combined”, “Multi metric trend”, and “Circular chart”. It may be used when setting a Target or parameter in the Formula metric.
