I have a number of Epics each with a number of issues in them and those issues have various statuses. What I'd like to do is provide a self-service report which shows the Epics and for each Epic a count of issues for each status. For example, Epic A has 5 "to do" issues, 3 "In Progress" issues and 1 "Done" issue; Epic B has 0 "to do" issues, 2 "In Progress" issues and 6 "Done" issues. This is using Jira Software Cloud Standard. I want do provide this without users having to click on each individual Epic and viewing the issue list and manually counting issues by status.
A simple "two dimensional filter statistics" gadget will do this on a dashboard.
Run a search for the issues you are interested in (not the epics, but the issues). Save it as a filter, then go to the dashboard, add the gadget, put in the name of your saved filter, and select "status" on the X axis and "epic link" on the Y axis.
No problem. 2d gadget is a firm favourite for me, I often plug it.
I just wanted to add that I forgot to talk about the filter - one of the nice things about this trick is that the filter doesn't have to be based on links, you could have it look at one or many projects, search by priority, tie it to a user or group etc ("priority = critical" was a firm favourite at my last place).
The gadget will report by Epic Link and status, whatever the search. One "get everything of every possible relevance" is to use "Epic link is not empty"
