[Jira 7][EazyBI] Time Spent vs time planned base on "logged by" user

Hi all,

I want to compare time spent on an issue vs time planned. It simple to do by assignee but it's not working for me because:

  • the last assignee on most issues is QA, so it's not the guy who has been working on it (spending time on it)
  • several developers may have contribute on a single issue.

So I try to filter by "logged by" dimension, but doing that the time planned is always null (row are "issues" dimension and columns are measures "Time Spent" and "Original Estimated").   

Any idea?

Thank you for your help!

Hi Jerome,


You could create a new calculated measure in "Measures" dimension using tuple

[Logged by].DefaultMember,
[Measures].[Original estimated hours]

This would let you see original estimated hours for an issue regardless of what "logged by" user is selected.

But since original estimated hours are entered once in JIRA and they are set on issue level (not per user) for an issue, it can't be split per user in reports. This could be a problem when multiple users work on issue and log hours.

Please find example of such report

Hi Martin,


It's simple and it works (at issue level).
