Hardcode colours to Pie Chart gadget slices?

My QA manager created this nice dashboard showing individual pie charts of each of our field releases showing open issues sorted by Priority. Our CEO was the first to point out that the blue slice on release A is blue and it represents Major issues while in release B the blue slice represents Critical issues. I believe the colour selection is based on the size of the slice and not what the slice represents. Is there a Pie Chart gadget where I can hardcode the colour based on its "Statistic Type" (i.e. Priority, etc)?

I'm seeking the same assistance.

It is frustrating to have four pie charts with different colours for same status across all.

PowerReport add-on is not available for Cloud: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.valiantys.jira.plugins.reporting

Bruno + Brent – agreed, this is annoying, no resolution I take it? It makes it basically impossible to compare pie charts

Has this been considered by Atlassian?

Same here - Changing colours as things get closed out is possibly even more annoying than not matching across pie charts. Please allow us to choose colours, or at least a sort order or something for colours?

We need to set colors in a pie chart to reflect tickets by Priority, so that colors always remain the same for the priorities, as follows:

  • P0 - Blocker Emergency (always RED)
  • P1 - Critical/High (always ORANGE)
  • P2 - Major/Medium (always BLUE)
  • P3- Minor/Low (always GREEN)
  • P4 - Trivial (always GRAY)

The link to PowerReport Plugin (above) is broken

Pie charts would be a great display to have side by side for each project.  We would like to use Status but need to be able to select the color of each status in order to be consistent.  This should not be hard and the customer should not have to change the code to do this.

This would make the pie chart a useful tool for management to get a quick glance at the statuses of multiple projects with standard colors like red, yellow, and green.

We're finding this really frustrating too. Devs getting particularly annoyed that "Done" is sometimes blue, or even red. Whilst the more logical green is used for something else. 

It also means we can't run comparisons across our development teams - to at least gauge progress through our sprint.
