How can I show start and end date of an epic in eazyBi?


I have epics with 'Planned Start' and 'Planned End' set.

In eazyBi I have 'Epic Link' in 'Rows' and 'Measures->Calculated Members->Issue Planned Start/End' in 'Columns'.

Eventually I want to create a gantt chart but the columns 'Issue Planned Start/End' are empty.

What could I be doing wrong?

Hi Clifford,

'Epic Link' dimension does not contain all issue properties, it only displays link to issues. It can be used together with Issue dimension to filter out all issues that are in certain Epic.

To create report you were looking for you should add Issue dimension on Rows and Issue Type to Pages. Select "Epic" from Issue Type and "Hide Empty rows and columns" to show only Epics. See example report.

Note that I have used Issue created date and Issue resolution date Measures on columns. This is only as example. If you have more problems with creating the report, please provide me more details on how you have defined "Issue Planned Start/End" dates.

Kind regards,

Thanks Lauma,

that worked.

I now need to configure the progress like in

but using the story points of the stories which are linked to an epic.

It should be something like this:

CASE WHEN [Measures].[Original estimated story points] > 0 THEN
([Measures].[Original estimated story points]
- [Measures].[Remaining estimated story points]) /
[Measures].[Original estimated story points]

Is this possible?



To do this I added three more calculated measures to the report

  1. "Story points created within epic", that sums up all story points that are created in the Epic. Note that you need to add DefaultMember of each Dimension you have in Pages.
  2. "Story points due within epic" in similar way as previous
  3. "Story Points resolved within Epic %" which is the actual displayed measure. It uses previous two measures in a similar way as you described in formula.

Note that you can see all formulas by clicking on "show" or you can export the report definition and import it to your JIRA instance, see more in documenation about report exporting and importing. Calculated members will be defined for you in your eazyBI account while importing report.

Kind regards,

perfect. thanks again
