How do I arrange the order of the data in a cumulative flow diagram?

Phil Stebbings April 11, 2024

I have two Kanban boards set up identically where I need to report out the Cumulative Flow Diagrams for each. In the first one, the data is stacked with the first phase data on top and the last phase data on the bottom. In the second, the data is stacked in the opposite direction. How do I get them to match?

Hi @Phil Stebbings 

I recall some open defects where the Control Chart and Cumulative Flow Diagram do not work / display as expected when:

  • issues were imported from another site and the status id values were incorrect
  • the workflow had any status loops back to the same status

If those apply, you may want to check with Atlassian Support for any options.

Kind regards,
Bill

Hi @Phil Stebbings,

Not sure if this can be fixed or configured in that Jira's report.

But instead this limited report, I recommend trying the Cumulative Flow Diagram (CFD) gadget offered by our Great Gadgets app.

It is highly configurable and flexible and, for sure, it will display the data properly for your dashboards. It can calculate by issue count, story points, hours or custom fields and allows you to include the sub-tasks in the calculation.

Hope this helps. If you need help with the configuration, please contact us at support@stonikbyte.com. 

Thank you,
