Two-dimension arrays displaying keys?


I'm looking to create a table with Y axis being Epic (game 1, game 2, game 3) and X axis being defects in each state (Open, Reopened, Closed). I know how to create a two dimension array to display the number of defects in each box but is it possible to display the actual JIRA Keys instead of the number? IE for Game 1/Open, I'd like to see "XXX-1, XXX-2, XXX-5" instead of seeing "3" where 3 is a link to take me to the search to display XXX-1, XXX-2, XXX-5.

Hi Wes,

The short answer is, no it is not possible with in-built macros.

However, I use page properties for similar reports I generate.

You can create a page for each Epic and add a page property section to it. I have an "Open Issues" property in each page. For the value of property add a JIRA macro with a filter similar to this:

"Epic Link"=DG-2345 and Status !=Done

Update the Display options section to show just the columns you want. I leave just Key column in and delete everything else out.

Repeat this for all Epics you need in the report.

Then you need a parent page with a Page Property Report macro and make sure you have the Open Issues column in your report.

this works for me, hope helps you too.
