What I want to do: send an Average Age Report (including the chart image) to our company via email every day.
The problem: I haven't found a way to get this data or this chart image via the public JIRA api.
1. Make a chrome extension that loads the report page.
2. The chrome extension gets the chart off the page, converts it to base64 and sends the info back to my server.
3. My server then takes that and emails it to all the people.
My solution is bad... but what's the real way to do this?
i often use subscription to filters to nudge along various disciplines in the org but never used data from some of the widgets. interesting problem. frankly, i don't think you can out of the box. my best solution would be to look into this addon. it got some mention at the Atlassian Summit this year, and if they haven't already implemented such functionality, they would likely be interested in doing so if you approach them.
You can email us any time at info[at]midori-global.com with your questions!
Finally, your report could look like this:
To extend Ferenc's answer, JIRA PDF View Plugin 3.5.0 supports exporting dashboards and gadgets!
You can now freely export the Average Age gadget (see the rightmost box in the sample PDF) and email that automatically with the PDF Automation Plugin.
