Dear @roberts.cacus ,
thanks a lot for the ideas!
I finally managed to look into the topic again, and was able to create a calculated custom field with JMCF that contains date - value tuples for each day the value changed. Unfortunately, this doesn’t provide me with what I need for eazyBI obviously.
My use case is that I collect number of errors in a document, and I’ve got multiple issues, each for one document. What I would like to see are (hopefully :)) error burn down curves over time.
Maybe an example could help:
In one case I’ve got the following value of the newly created custom field:
In another case it’s this value:
When I now plot a line diagram for one of those tickets I only get data points at the days collected in the custom field. What I would like to end up is a line diagram which also has data points in between. This is especially important, if you’ve got issues which have got data points at different days like shown above, but those values are summed up if looking on all issues.
Do I need to adapt my custom field code, so the custom field already contains all dates with the respective value, or is there any solution in eazyBI?
The first option would look somehow like this:
This especially does not work at the end, I think. Because if I’d need to something like this, I would need to go until “today” date always, which would mean I would need to reindex the Jira project each day if I’m not mistaken.
