One of my users want to populate a 2-dimensional filter statistics gadget using X Axis as Created date of issue and Y axis as Components.
I had a look at the options available but could not find Created date; which makes me feel this is not possible.
Am i missing something?
If not, is there any workaround available?
No, it's not possible. The input fields for this gadget have to be distinct countable items, ideally with limited list. Date (and worse, date/time) fields are not definite items.
If for example, I create 10,000 issues, technically, I'd have around 10,000 points on my X axis, each with one point, because each created date/time is going to be different
I know what you're looking for, you really do want just the date - but even that has the problem that the axis could easily become too long to be useful. Imagine data from my first Jira install - it's going to have several thousand days on the axis...
Bascially, you're going to need code to fix this. You could start with a derived field to get the "created date" as *just* the date, instead of being a date-time, but if you're going to be coding, I'd actually take a step back and re-examine the actual report requirements.
Fields that don't have a limited number of options can't be used in the 2-dimensional filter statistics gadget. (Created Date doesn't really have a limited number of options because of the fact that it's a date time stamp and so each millisecond would be an option).
Take a look to this plugin:
This plugin adds the "stattable" condition to several fields, so you can use them in gadgets to group by.
