Requirement: I am looking to create a dashboard gadget that allows me to show how many issues were created (or resolved) each month over a given time period (say a year)
What I think I need to do is create a custom date field to track just the month and year from the date created (or resolved). I could make this a hidden field, but then expose it to the two dimensional filter table gadget. Then I can do a count of issues per month vs Dev Team or Priority, for example.
Does anyone know how to create a field that reads the value of the datecreated and stores just the Month (and/or Year).
I got the answer I needed and thought I'd post it here in case anyone else would like to do something similar...
you need to create a Calculated Text Field, and use a formula such as:
<!-- @@Formula: new java.text.SimpleDateFormat("MM-yyyy").format(issue.get("created")) -->
Both of those fields are available and set automatically out of the box.
Created Date, Resolution Date.
Created Date is set on create.
Resolution Date is set when the issue's resolution field is set.
The built in "Created vs. Resolved Chart" dashboard gadget will get you what you need.
