Hierarchical Analysis in Jira with Tree Map

Discover the power of the Tree Map chart for dynamic visualization of ratios based on specific fields or metrics. With the ability to drill down and analyze three levels deep, the Tree Map offers unparalleled insight into hierarchical data, allowing you to effortlessly visualize part-to-whole relationships.

With its hierarchical structure and nested rectangles, the Tree Map chart offers an intuitive visualization method. In our sample report, we have displayed work logs per issue with various priorities. Each rectangle is dynamic, meaning that clicking on it reveals the second level of information — in our case, issue types. Delving deeper into the third level of the map unveils the author of each work log. Below are the configuration steps for this report.

Step 1: Add data source. Filter out the issues that need to be analyzed. To explore Data Source options, please check the Configuration Overview article.

Step 2: Select metric ‘Work Log Time (h)’ from the available metric options.

Step 3: Select field ‘Priority’ for ‘Level 1’ from the available field options.

Step 4: Select field ‘Issue Type’ for ‘Level 2’ from the available field options.

Step 5: Select field ‘Work Log Author’ for ‘Level 3’ from the available field options.
