Does EazyBI display field options in dimensions/etc if no issues used a given option?

That's really it, trying to confirm that EazyBI won't display field options in dimensions/etc after importing if no issues used a given option? Would this vary based on Jira vs. custom fields, etc.?

This appears to be the case - imported a custom field that has 5 field options. Added the custom field/dimension as a row and it is only showing data on four of the five options (and displaying respective counts based on those four options). If I do a search in Jira for the 5th option, there are currently no issues that have the "missing" option selected. 

Was curious if the expected convention in EazyBI is for it to "not display" options that have no values, or if this is unexpected (e.g. should it be showing "Option 5: 0" when adding the dimension as a row in EazyBI?)

I have been trolling through the EazyBI documentation and haven't found it directly stated one way or the other yet, wanted to ask as due diligence

eazyBI imports any data based on issues. Therefore, yes, you are correct. If there is no issue with a particular value, we will not import the value into eazyBI. Once the value is used in issues, we will import it. We have some ideas to support data import of any available options for some dimensions. This might help for some scenarios when you would like to track the activity of some values.
While we do not have clear plans for it yet, we will update the post if there will be any news.
