Good day, all! I need to create a report that will provide the count of all requests received to our service project by "Request Type"  Example 20 for password reset, 50 for Security, etc. I am uncertain about how to create this, any guidance would be appreciated!

Hello @Drew D_ 

Welcome to the Atlassian community.

Unfortunately Request Type is not yet available in the native statistic gadgets that can be used in a Jira Dashboard. There is a change request for there here:

A work around is described here (link is in the above change request):

You might also find third party apps that add more dashboard gadgets that would enable you to create a statistical report based on Request Type. At least one such app was mentioned in this post:

Hi @Drew D_,

if you're open to solutions from the Atlassian Marketplace, you may want to have a look at the app that my team and I are working on, JXL for Jira.

JXL is a full-fledged spreadsheet/table view for your issues that allows viewing, inline-editing, sorting, and filtering by all your issue fields - including all JSM fields - much like you’d do in e.g. Excel or Google Sheets. It also comes with a number of advanced features, including support for (configurable) issue hierarchies, issue grouping by any issue field(s), sum-ups, or conditional formatting

With these, you can build a request type report like e.g. this one in just a couple of clicks:


Note that this is really just one of a virtually endless number of possible reports - you can also view and group by any other issue field(s). 

Could this help with your use case?

Any questions just let me know,
