Filter issues based on labels - EXCLUDE issues - eazyBI

Hello eazyBI team!

Is it possible to EXCLUDE issues from the report result based on the labels dimension?

I know how to INCLUDE issues with particular label/labels in the report. All I need is to put Label dimension in the Pages section and then choose appropriate labels. Like this:

But what I need is the opposite. I need to select those labels that I do not want to show related issues in the report. Is this possible? I do not want to manually select all labels except the required ones (there are more than 500 labels in total).

How can I achieve this?

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Hi Samuel,

Sorry for such delay in answering this!

This would be similar as selecting the labels you are interested in. Only you can create a calculated member in Labels dimension where you exclude the label you do not wish to see and then select this calculated member. 

The formula for this would be simple - subtract the label you do not wish to see from Default All labels member

[Label].DefaultMember - [Label].[demo]

Or you can use the Except(..) function as follows

      [Label].[demo 1],
      [Label].[demo 2]


Kind regards,

Dear Lauma,

thank you for your answer!

In the meantime I managed to solve my request by excluding particular issues with certain labels when importing data into the cube (additional JQL query).

Anyway, this is still useful for me. Many thanks. I will use this for sure in one of upcoming reports in our eazyBI instance.


I already tried your hints. The first one works as expected.

[Label].DefaultMember - [Label].[TLI] - [Label].[Top5]

#Issues with TLI label = 26
#Issues with Top5 label = 15
#Issues in total = 18,737
When I selected the member, total issues count (measure issues created) = 18,696 OK


Then I tried the second hint:


I selected this member and got total issues count (measure issues created) = 20,132 NOK

Did I make some mistake?


All the Best

Hi Samuel,

No, there are no mistakes from your side. Issue can have several labels. In case of aggregating, if issue has more than one label, it is counted once for each of the labels, showing more issues in total. This actually shows how many times the labels have been added.

To get the distinct count of issues on total level, use the Distinct issues count measures.

Kind regards,

Hi Lauma,

ahaaa, now I understand smile You are right.

Many thanks for support.


Best Regards


Hi @Lauma Cīrule I have wc label and I created a calculated member in the Labels dimension but it seems not to work

What I am doing wrong here?


Any ideas on this? :)

@Lauma Cīrule I used the 

[Label].DefaultMember - [Label].[demo]

suggestion to filter out a specific label however i'm getting the 60 second timeout when I use it. Is the other option more ideal? 

Hi @John-Michael Talarico!

This particular calculation for Labels is correct, but it strongly depends on other calculations and configuration of the report. Probably it is better if you share more details about your report (including report definition) to eazyBI support to see what could be causing the timeout in loading results.

How to manage many similar workflows?

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 ...
