How can I graph the time between ticket creation and assignment? Edited

The more detailed question I'm trying to ask is, 'On the average, how long does it take for a team to pick up a ticket once an issue has been reported to them via a Jira ticket?'

The answer would be in the form of, 'On the average, it takes X hrs for the team to assign a ticket to a team member.'

I'm trying to view how long it takes for a ticket to be assigned once it has been created in a Jira project. Is there a way, natively within Jira, to quickly graph this historical data?

  • In the history log, I can see the date when the ticket has been created.
  • I can also see when the assignee field has changed.

Can this data be imported to EazyBI? If so, how?

Thanks for reading.

Hi @Arnold Ng

EazyBI isn't something I have specific experience in, but a quick look in their support pages and I found this page which might be of use.

There is also some detail on advanced data import options here.

Let us know if utilising this data gives you what you need :)


Hi all,

@Stephen Wright _Elabor8_ is correct about the Issues history import to eazyBI to get the first assigned date. But these measures are not created automatically. The following formula would get the first assigned DateTime

[Measures].[Transition to first timestamp],
[Transition Field].[Assignee]

To calculate average you can use the following formula

Avg(Filter( -- average
Descendants([Issue].CurrentMember, [Issue].[Issue]), -- filter set of issues
IIF([Time].CurrentHierarchyMember is -- if they are created in current time
[Issue].CurrentHierarchyMember.Get('Created at'),
[Time].CurrentHierarchyMember) AND
[Measures].[Issues created] > 0) -- and other report context
NonZero(DateDiffDays( -- difference in days. Multiply this with 24 to get hours
[Issue].CurrentHierarchyMember.get('Created at'),
[Measures].[Transition to first timestamp],
[Transition Field].[Assignee]

I have put in a request to our Jira admins to enable 'Import issue change history' and will try this solution once enabled.

Hi @Arnold Ng 

An issue's change log history can be accessed via REST API:

Get change logs

GET /rest/api/3/issue/{issueIdOrKey}/changelog

Returns all changelogs for an issue sorted by date, starting from the oldest.

This operation can be accessed anonymously.


Using this data, you can find out when each ticket was created and assigned to someone. You can find the average if you get this data individually for all issues.

Hello @Arnold Ng I'm pretty sure that we have done this for our customers using service desk SLAs and eazybi. Do you have both or just the second one?

Just the second, eazybi.
