How to sum the daily values of a Custom Jira ticket field?

I have created a custom numerical field for a specific type of Jira tickets, call it Risk Points. I have imported that field successfully into EazyBI and can use it as Dimension. I am having issues trying to use it as a measure, specifically:

I want to sum-up, and plot over time, the daily summed value of Risk Points for all of the open issues of a specific project over a specific time period.


                                                             0              1              2                3 (Risk Point value)   Sum

Project A Ticket Type B March 25 2 3 4 1 11
Project A Ticket Type B March 26 1 2 3 0 8
Project A Ticket Type B March 27 0 3 1 0 5

I’ve watched a number of the videos and read some of the reference material but simply cannot piece this together in the calculated measures MDX Editor.

Hi @Adam_hollow,

A warm welcome to the eazyBI community. I am sorry your question didn’t get any attention for the last two weeks.

By default, numeric fields can be imported as measures. To import them as a dimension, you have to make some adjustments in the eazyBI advanced settings. Once the field is imported as a measure, it will be tied to specific issue dates. That will tie the values to the Time dimension in the report. You can read more about it on our documentation page - Jira custom fields.

The measure I recommend is “Risk Points history”. It should be available for import with the issue change history enabled - Import issue change history. Please see the suggested report structure below:

In such a report, you can see the cumulative changes of the field value for unresolved issues over time.

Thanks for reply. It wasn’t the answer to my question but led me to it (importing my custom field as a measure)! I didn’t give enough detail in the first request.
