eazyBI - Filter "returned" issues


I am very new to eazyBI and MDX. Recently I have been trying to accomplish a task but have had little to no progress.

I wish to create a report that has the following columns:

1. Total number of inactive issues ("Rejected", "Backlog" or "Classified")

2. Total number of active issues (not "Rejected", "Backlog" or "Classified")

3. Total number of times the active issues have transitioned backwards from "In Check" or "In Correction"

4. Total number of times the active issues have transitioned backwards from "Approved"

As these transitions may also go forward down the workflow, I am unable to use the Transition from status measure. 

My goal is to have two stacked bar charts. The first showing me the proportion of inactive to active issues which should total to the number of issues created. And the second showing me the number of "returns" from each category which should total to the total number of transitions backwards.

Hi @Lucas Yap

For 1 and 2 you can use the aggregate function to group statuses together. Have the measures issues created and status in the columns. Issues will tenon rows. Link:

For 3 and 4, you can use the transition to dimensions:


Hi @Lucas Yap ,

The first two points are addressed by @Fabian Lim . Hint - aggregating all statuses without the three mentioned could be tedious work. Look into the Except() function to make it easier -

I  want to chip in for the last two points. You can use a combination (tuple) of the measure "Transitions from status", Transition Status dimension member (or calculated member) and the Status dimension calculated member to retrieve the number of transitions from specific statuses for issues currently in a different status.

As an example, active issues have transitioned backwards from "In Check" or "In Correction". See the formula below:

[Measures].[Transitions from status],
[Transition Status].[Check and Correction], -- <== Transition Status calculated member
[Status].[Active] -- <== Status calculated member

See more details on defining calculated members and measures on the eazyBI documentation page -
