How to group issues by summary prefix in dashboard gadget


Is there a way to display, in a dashboard gadget, the number of issues matching every existing summary prefix (not predefined, or from a predefine list), and have each count linked to a corresponding list.

I'm looking at a project in which issues were historically grouped by the developers using a summary prefix, and want to track how much issues of each group exist.

I have found a workaround to be able to use the summary field in a pie chart within a dashboard. It may help you with your problem. You need Nfeed (Elements) add-on.

  1. Create a custom field of type NFeed that collects the value of the summary field of the issues using the SQL statement: SELECT '$issue.summary'
  2. Create a post function of type 'nFeed: Set a field value' inside the Create transition of the workflows you want to control
  3. Use the custom field created inside the Pie Chart gadget

Thanks for sharing your tip @Ricardo Marqués 

Just want to clarify for @Shai that nFeed is now called Elements Connect (Elements is the name of the vendor that makes the app).

Thank you both for the feedback

Unfortunately this won't be easy especially if the prefix is three or less characters. You will need to use JQL in a filter using the "text" function:

text ~ "ABC"

If this brings back what you need then you can use this filter in a dashboard gadget.

You may also want to use this filter to update a field such as Component so that this becomes easier to mange in the future.

Thank you for the feedback
