JIRA Chart with total number of open bugs over time?

I am looking for a way to chart number of unresolved JIRA issues over time.

It should display something like

That's the total number of open bugs, not bugs created during the specified period of time.

This should allow us to see if the number of open-bugs is growing over time.

I need exactly the same thing. Attalasian has two answers they will supply over an over

Neither do what you need/want. Your chart shows it perfectly, in case there is any confusion, here is the raw data needed.

Date - Total Active Bugs

Apr/1/14 - 25
Apr/2/14 - 22
Apr/3/14 - 19
Apr/4/14 - 14
Apr/5/14 - 26
Apr/6/14 - 20
Apr/7/14 - 15

Here is the feature request created 12/Mar/08, its been around 6 years with little activity...


I am also looking for the same.. How to we track the number of open bugs in JIRA? Please advise if any of you know how to do it ... Thank you Suren

I would love to see this feature as well. Currently I'm trying to show a "per user total issues by time" line chart? That means the same as your graphic, but every line should be a user instead of a project. Example: Day 1 (x axis) Tom has 3 issues (y axis, red line), Brendan 0 (y axis, blue line). Day 2 Tom has 1 issue (red), Brendan 1 (blue)

Have you tried Cumulative Flow Diagram?   This report seems to do a decent job of giving # of unresolved issues over time.  It's not perfect, since it gives extra detail about the state of the issues, but when you look at the chart over time, I believe it will do what most of folks here are looking for.   It won't give you a per user graphic, however.

Make sure that when use Cumulative Flow Diagram, you click on "Refine report" and then unclick on the Resolved/Done/Closed issues.   This will ensure that it will only take into account the unresolved issues.
