Default Jira issue cube

We assume you know how a customer uses Jira starting with applications, projects, workflows, custom fields. eazyBI imports data from Jira via issues. Learn how eazyBI will build Jira issue cube (dimensions, measures, and properties based on Jira data).

Issue change history

Jira issue cube described above import current state of any Jira default field. For historical data analysis enable Issue change history import for default fields (Status, Assignee, Issue Type, Priority, Resolution, Sprints).

You can import change history for any Jira number field as well. You should enable change history import for custom fields. We support it for single value custom fields only. You can import previous dates as a separate property for Jira date custom fields.

Historical measures will give different results for dimensions over time than current measures. Status dimension will always show a current status of the issue. Transition status is a separate dimension representing a historical status of an issue.
