EazyBi how to show linked issue in reports


I want to create a report which is grouped by Status and want to show the number of links to that issues.

Hi Akash,

Issue links currently are not imported to eazyBI by default. It is possible to import issue links by using JIRA Misc custom calculated fields, please see more information here https://docs.eazybi.com/display/EAZYBIJIRA/JIRA+Misc+Custom+Fields#JIRAMiscCustomFields-Issuelink.

You could create a custom calculated numeric field that returns number of incoming or outgoing links (or links with specific link type) for each issue. When imported, you would be able to use this new measure together with Status dimension.

Kind regards,
Lauma / support@eazybi.com 

Would the Links Hierarchy add-on also be helpful in this situation? We're in a similar situation where we want reports that take into consideration issue links. Links Hierarchy looks promising for helping on the JIRA side of things, but would be good to know if it does or doesn't pass on anything useful to eazyBI

Hi @Lauma, I'm trying to solve a similar task. Could you please share some example of the report you proposed? My eazyBI version is 4.2, though, but I'm not able to go further with this set up using this link.
