JQL is for finding issues. How you display the results is how you get to see information about the data that a list will contain.
This is a doddle though. Create a filter that finds your N issues and save it. Go to your dashboard, and add a "filter statistics" gadget. Tell that to use your saved filter, and to use "component" as the metric.
It will now answer your question.
Awesome. Two dimensional filter statistics does exactly what I want!
One more question. My filter that I use for the gadget currently contains a hard-coded date (resolutiondate>something). I want to be able to change that "something" on the fly when using the gadget in the dashboard. Is there a way to get a date-picker in the dashboard and apply that to the filter when rendering the gadget content?
Oops, I meant the simple filter gadget, which gives you a simple bar chart, but the 2d one should answer the question too (and possibly better, if you want to combine it with other fields!)
You can't feed dates into things like that though. The best you can do is use a dynamic date in your filter ( like startDayWeek (-7) and so-on )
I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
