Hi!

Which functionality do you want to make? 

add-on  means in Jira, so JVM based things can be like java, scala, groovy, jruby, jython etc.

But the main idea of that tools , it's cover some functionality, hence please. start from functionality and do external app which will communicate via REST Api.

If dashboards on Jira web site, - nope.

AS workaround you can do in Grafana + some DB (influxdb, elastic, prometheus) etc
