Hi I would like to see all open issues (i.e. everything NOT closed) ordered by project on the dashboard so I can quickly scan all open issues. Is there any way to create a gadget for this?
Can't be done - the gadgets are restricted to 50 issue displays, and even the navigator tops out at 1,000 to prevent performance issues. A glance at one system I have access to shows tens of thousands of open issues, so there's no chance of such a gadget ever rendering.
Presenting the users with a potential mass of issues is pretty much useless as well as non-performant. What you should do is use summaries:
Also consider using a 2d filter gadget with project + <other field>
If you really want to display so many results and expect them to be less than 1000 open issues at a time, you can search for issues with the following JQL:
statusCategory != Done ORDER BY project
You can save this JQL by saving it as a favorite filter.
Otherwise, Nic's proposed solution will fit your needs.
These look great and I have set them up. What I am really looking for is the same as FogBugz - http://grab.by/K8Ku where you see the project name and the issues below. Basically we will usually have 10-20 projects with 5-10 issues each and as admin it is very useful to scan the list . Is this possible?
