Power BI only counts JIRA Time Spent instead of summing

I am currently testing Power BI and connection with JIRA worked perfectly. The template is also fine but I would like to customize it.

One of the customization options is to see the sum of time spent on an issue type. Streangely, the filters in Power BI only let me to count the time spent field instead of summing it.

A little bit of googling revealed that that Power BI only support Count function if there is text in the column / or NULLs instead of numbers. And this can only be fixed by editing the data model.

Problem: I do not see the option to edit the datamodel.

Any idea how to fix this?

I have exactly the same problem. It is because the JIRA app makes all the fields non-numeric when connecting to PowerBI. I have no idea how to solve this ...

Have anybody managed to solve this issue?  It would be VERY helpful!

Ok, thank you for the idea! But still, is it possible to intergate JIRA data in Power BI Cloud well?
