Grafana with Jira


Does it possible to use Grafana with Jira ?


I would like to get some statistics (number of issues and so on... ) in Grafana.


I try with plugin "SimpleJSON" and REST API Jira but it doesn't work...

Thanks, but not really...

With this, you monitor the JVM and i want to have more statistics with REST and JQL.

We had the same struggles and never found a solution so I built one. You can use this project to accomplish what you need;

Hi Mike,

The reference is good,but when I try to validate (http://localhost:3000/test-jira) it returns Unauthorized (401) and when I run docker-compose.yml it returns

ERROR: for jira-grafana Cannot start service jira-grafana: driver failed programming external connectivity on endpoint jira-grafana-json-datasource-master_jira-grafana_1 (b8c1646130d2e5a850575dd5c1570a7e5bd570238236a7b835045c469dfd82f1): Bind for failed: port is already allocated
ERROR: Encountered errors while bringing up the project.

Hey nimmakayala!

You must have something already using port 3000 on your computer as the error is stating that, it's a common port for many other Docker projects using HTTP;

Bind for failed: port is already allocated

Is this a common error? I've tried both dev and prod Dockerfiles

I've been trying to get your solution to work. But metrics in grafana doesn't come up. It just says "Bad Gateway" when i use query inspector. 



When I try the localhost it seems to work fine:



Ok if I got everything properly configured and working... how can I fetch or do queries ? sorry for noob question.

Hi  @Mike Frank what version of the Grafana and the plugin you are using. I'm using Grafana 7.2.2 and plugin 1.4.1. All I get when i try to create a dashboard with timeseries is a drop-down list with XML format :( 

I have Grafana 7.3.4 with SimpleJson 1.4.1 and no issues. 

This will not work for self-hosted JIRA instances.

I'd like to recommend you to export Jira data to Grafana using Skyvia online data platform ( It allows you to load necessary data from Jira to Grafana through a database or a cloud data warehouse of your choice. Using this tool you'll be able to do it automatically, without any coding.

By the way, Skyvia is Jira's partner. You can find them on the Atlassian marketplace.
