[EazyBI] Calculating ratios

Hi all,

I have the following situation:

  1. a calculated measure called "Days spent" that sums-up all work logs on tickets
  2. two issue type grouped "Bugs" and "Projects"

I want to calculate a simple ratio of time spent fixing bugs vs time spent developing new features for projects. Of course I've tried with a very naive approach to define a new calculated member (in my "issue type" dimension) as Bugs/Projects*100 but it's not giving me the expected figure.

How can I solve it out?

Thank you for your help.

Hi Jerome!

You are correct to use the tuples for the ratio formula.

If you also wanted to see Measure columns for Days Spent for Bugs and Days Spent for Project issue type, you can add following Measures (also tuples) 

  • Days spent for Bugs
([Measures].[Days spent], [Issue Type].[Bugs])
  • Days spent for Projects
([Measures].[Days spent], [Issue Type].[Project])


And then use these for division in ratio measure

[Measures].[Days spent for bugs] / [Measures].[Days spent for Projects]


Kind regards,

Hi Lauma, works fine! Thanks again for your quick help. Jerome

Hi All,

Found something using tuples, not sure that's the right way to it though. I've created a new calculated measure like this:

([Measures].[Days spent],[Issue Type].[Bugs])/([Measures].[Days spent],[Issue Type].[Project])

Results are OK but I'cant have both ratios and time spent because it's actually adding new columns. Any other idea would be appreciated.
