How to enable velocity chart on JIRA dashboard

How to enable velocity chart on JIRA Dashboard without gadget plugin, any options if available. Please give me any suggestion.

i suggest to vote for this issue and make it a priority

By default, there's no way to put Velocity charts to the dashboard unless you use some plugin i.e.

How is this even possible that JIRA has no native way to show velocity charts in a dashboard. How is it acceptable. I find this so hard to believe. One of the most basic charts in all of Agile and they can't support it? I have to pay for a 3rd party extension for one of the most baseline capabilities in an ALM tool? I know there's a report, but i want it in a dashboard. 

Who's got a link to an existing feature request that will go unsatisfied for years?

Agreed. This is a pretty big miss. Team velocity is kind-of the main point.

It's like, THE point! Of points! So you can guage your performance over time! And they INSIST on so many charts and gadgets only supporting points.... and then to not have a velocity gadget?

I'm yelling, sorry. It just baffles me sometimes how half-baked this tool can be sometimes, when it's so powerful and awesome in other ways.

As a work around I added a 'Text' widget to the dashboard which supports html and then embedded the velocity chart url into an iframe into the dashboard.. like this:

<iframe width="900" height="1000" frameborder="0" src="URL to Velocity Chart"></iframe>

Can you please send me a link to how to add "Text" widget?  I'm triyng to put one of these together

I just search for the 'text' gadget and it showed up in the last of available gadgets for dashboards.

Can no longer find the text widget? 

I used the Custom Content gadget and added the URL to the velocity chart.

Neither Custom Content Gadget or Text widget is available from what I can see. Did something change?
