Can I check for top reporter and assignee Edited

Hi guys,

I'm using JIRA Server 7.0.5

I just wonder if we can check who is the top issue reporter , top issue assignee on JIRA.

I just know how to use JQL and i think it wont have because we need some function to count i guess.

using pie chart gadget you can achive this, check the following doc to know more about it

Thanks . Well the thing is i am creating a new page on jira by using Atlassian SDK tool. So what i want is to put the analysis on that new page . If using built-in gadget ( pie chart ) i can only add to my dashboard . What i want is to add into that new page so that everybody in the team can see it , Any ideas ?

"Well the thing is i am creating a new page on jira by using Atlassian SDK tool"

how you are creating page in jira?

do you mean creating a page in confluence? 


we use to create dashboard with required gadgets and share with all the team members so that it can be accesses all team members check following doc for more info

another way is, you can show jira gadget in confluence, check following doc 


What i mean is i built a JIRA Plugin  (

What i built is a JIRA Webwork plugin which will link to a velocity page , then i modify that page to display what i want for the team (

So i am finding a way to put the pie chart in this page , but since this is not JIRA dashboard , i cannot do that . 

Thanks for your idea on using shared dashboard too but so far i think i just can share the pie chart of 1 specific project , if another teammate what to see pie chart of another project , they cant . Therefore i prefer to have the chart on the new building page which everyone can access and decide which project they want to see

not sure how to display pi chart in vm file but you can create a table.

with jira api you can search the issue and pass the values to vm template and display as table, check the following doc to get more info on how to search in plugin


I think you can display any chart using third party plugins like high charts, d3js,..

Thanks for your advice, i did also try using JQL to perform search. However, JQL havent allow us to find top reporter and assignee, i still try to research. 

when you do jql search using jira api then it will return List<issues> with this you can generate metrics. 

Yes one way i think of is to count for the reporters and assignees from the issue get from rest api , however this is a little bit tedious . 

The Aggregate function of JIRA have a function to deal with this problem but they not well-demonstrated and not on rest api too.
