Power bi for jira vs easy bi for jira

What is the difference between power bi for jira and easy bi for jira

3 answers

Hi @khushboo_puri ,

The main difference is in the final place where you need to have your Jira reports. 

If you wish to build reports inside your Jira instance, then Easy BI for Jira is proper and relevant solution for you, including all its benefits kindly listed above by @Janis Gulbis

If you need to build Jira reports in an external tool such as Microsoft Power BI, then you need to pull there your Jira data. The main benefits of creating reports in Power BI are:

- you can merge Jira data with other data sources (CRM, financial data etc) in Power BI and build complex reports using various data 

- if you're currently using Power BI for corporate reporting and you wish to have all reports in one tool, you can do this in Power BI. 

And in this case, our Power BI Connector for Jira could be useful. 

So answering your question, the difference between EasyBI for Jira and Power BI for Jira is feasible, and the best option for you can be only determined by your reporting needs and where you need to create reports.

Hope this helps.

Both the PowerBI and eazyBI are powerful business intelligence, data analysis, and visualization tools. When it comes to Jira data analysis, there are several important benefits of using eazyBI over external BI tools using connectors:

* Complete Jira data model: eazyBI comes with a complete and up-to-date Jira data model mapped to an analytical data cube out-of-the-box. It means that you can use virtually any Jira standard or custom field as building blocks to create custom Jira reports.

* With Jira in mind: With almost a decade of experience with Jira data analysis, eazyBI provides additional tools for better data analysis. Historical reports, status changes, epic, sprint, issue hierarchies, and so on. There are pre-defined custom calculations, measures, dimensions, and dozens of Jira example report templates available. You can copy/paste these into your eazyBI accounts.

* Jira integration: eazyBI is seamlessly integrated into Jira, supporting jira gadgets to publish eazyBI reports in Jira dashboards, drill through a list of issues, and access related issues from the report.

* Optimized import performance: Over the years eazyBI has achieved a highly optimized Jira API data import, able to import and process large amounts of complex issue data reliably and efficiently.

* Incremental imports: eazyBI reports are updated automatically and each update imports only new data incrementally. This prevents constant full re-import of data and results in much faster data imports with less impact on Jira performance.

* Reports for Jira apps: eazyBI also supports data analysis from many popular Jira apps like Tempo, Zephyr, Xray, Projectrak, Insight, Bitbucket, Bamboo, and more. It is also possible to import and merge external data from SQL databases, Rest API, or spreadsheets.

* eazyBI is fully web-based. The report builder, interactive reports and dashboards, data explorer, and report sharing are all available from any modern browser, just like Jira. No need for additional desktop software, licensing, publishing servers etc. 

* Support, Documentation, and Community: eazyBI support not only app-related questions bet can also help with building first custom Jira reports. The documentation contains comprehensive instructions, examples, and tutorials. There is an eazyBI community portal where users share ideas, use-cases, questions, and suggestions.


You can try eazyBI without installing anything – check out the article about eazyBI Playground. If you'd like to try eazyBI with your own data, head to eazyBI on Atlassian Marketplace to start a free trial.

Hi Janis,

For customer migrating their eazyBI server to cloud can you help

  • is there a migration path or migration tool available
  • feature parity matrix 
  • is there difference in schema, API
  • any gotchas



eazyBI provides a migration tool for moving eazyBI from Server to the Cloud instance:

The data model is identical, but there can be minor differences in the features between eazyBI for Cloud and Server. Please, check the documentation for more details:

Power BI Connector for Jira allows you to export Jira data directly to Power BI and create rich, interactive reports, data dashboards, and visualizations in Power BI Desktop. 
Easy BI for Jira works the same way, the difference is which business intelligence tool you want to use - Easy BI or Power BI. You can read the comparison here and choose the best one for your needs:

Please note that the Captera comparison listed above ( ) compares a different, standalone eazyBI Cloud service, NOT the "eazyBI for Jira" app.

Hi Julia,

For customer migrating their PBI server to cloud can you clarify

  • is there a migration path or migration tool available
  • feature parity matrix 
  • is there difference in schema, API
  • any gotchas


Hi @vkharisma 

Our Power BI Connector for Jira app is available for Jira Cloud. We don't have a migration tool yet. Feature parity matrix: 

All the information on Server to Cloud migration is constantly updated and can be found here:

Feel free to contact our support team if you need any kind of assistance.

The page Features Matrix is editable by anonymous (eg. anyone can tick/untick the checkbox) so not sure if the information is accurate? 

The second page doesn't content any useful information other than stating ...Yeap there technical (platform) and behaviour (experience) difference..

The Field mapping page also doesn't contain any detail. 

I raise a support ticket. Hoping someone can help.
