How To Show Issues In State vs Time?

Glen M. Baker May 8, 2024

We use a particular graphic to show project history and status. Currently we're building it with a google-sheets plugin but it's really brittle to do it that way. I'm wondering/hoping if Jira can simply produce what I want natively.


The chart I want has an x-axis of Date. On the y-axis we plot shaded areas that represent the total number of tickets in a given state (submitted, investigating, resolved, etc) on that date.

Example desired output:

Hi @Glen M. Baker 

It looks like a Cumulative Flow Diagram. Have you tried it?

Welcome to the community, @Glen M. Baker  👋

I would agree with your observation about the current approach. If I were you, I'd take a close look at 'What are default reports?' (in Jira Service Management) and the linked pages.

Especially the pages on building custom reports.

Keep an open mind about different ways to depict the data you want to see. Maybe there's something out of the box, or that you can build that reflects what you want to see, but may not exactly as you depict above.

If that fails, there are a number of really good JSM reporting packages on the Atlassian Marketplace.

Hope this helps,
