Simple chart report based on custom field


I'm trying to create some reports based on a custom field. However, this field doesn't appear in the drop down list of fields when creating reports or gadgets (some other custom fields are there). 

I tried changing the type from text to number field type, but this didn't change behaviour. What's going on?

In addition to typical Jira reports I would like to get simple chart based on one field in the issues like I would do in excel. E.g stacked chart showing cumulative value of this field for all issues of high priority.

I know this is not what's Jira geared towards, but it must be possible to do something as simple as that without export to excel?

Hi @Majda Lazarevic 

I agree that the built-in, Jira Cloud gadgets are quite limited in what they support.  Without more information about what you are trying to visualize/report on, your options appear to be:

  • Investigate the other dashboard gadgets to see if they support your field
  • Investigate marketplace add-on products (for purchase) with better gadgets
  • Investigate the Atlassian Excel add-on (or Google Sheets) to simplify data access with Jira and build your own charting
  • Build your own gadget for displaying information on a dashboard


Best regards,
