Hello all,

I am not a BI developer so I am looking to understand why I would use Analytics for Jira Work Management instead of a traditional Jira dashboard.

Also, I am looking to know what you typically put on your analytics dashboards.

Thank you for your time!

The out-of-the-box charts tend to answer the simple and most-common questions.   But if you wanted to do time-series analysis (see counts over time), multiple metrics/lines on the same chart so that you can compare them, aggregations (e.g. sum for totals) of metrics  across rows and/or columns, then you'd need something else.

The "something else" could be something like the "Custom Charts for Jira Reports and Time in Status", which would give you better charting, but it likely would not answer the mail in terms of more complex needs.   These plugins tend to rely on JQL and so if you cannot phrase your query in JQL then you can't get an answer to your question.  

For more complex needs i.e. BI, you would need something like EazyBI or the Atlassian Analytics.
