Jira issues in table reports - icons & links

Hi team,

this is just an enhancement to consider. Would it possible to think about rendering issuetype and priority icons in table reports (as an optional feature)? The reports would like much better then.

Also, is it possible to have Jira issues as active links? So that the report view can directly click on the Jira issue and get to right to Jira? Now, users have to use “Go to source” option in the context menu which is not intuitive. Again, this could be optional.

Thanks,
Radek

Thank you, @eset_janata, for your insights and suggestions!

I agree that pictures (and icons) may help to read the report and would be a helpful improvement. eazyBI does not have an option to show a picture from file or URL link yet. We have it in our backlog. And I added your vote to it.

In our backlog, we have another improvement to support rich text format and links for text fields. This could be a solution to make a clickable link directly to the Jira issue.
I will post an update there when anything changes.

Since eazyBI version 6.1, there is a new formatting option Markdown (https://docs.eazybi.com/eazybijira/analyze-and-visualize/calculated-measures-and-members#Calculatedmeasuresandmembers-Formatting).
Now you can have clickable links, images, and colored text in the table report.

For example, to show the issue link in the report as a clickable URL, you may define a new calculated measure “Issue link” in Measures. The expression for constructing the issue URL might be like this:

CASE WHEN [Issue].CurrentHierarchyMember <> [Issue].CurrentHierarchy.DefaultMember
THEN
"https://YourJiraDomain.atlassian.net/browse/"||
[Issue].CurrentHierarchyMember.Key
END

Or more advanced code to show display name “go to Jira ABC-1234” for a link to the issue:

CASE WHEN [Issue].CurrentHierarchyMember <> [Issue].CurrentHierarchy.DefaultMember
THEN
"[go to Jira "||[Issue].CurrentHierarchyMember.Key||"]("||
"https://YourJiraDomain.atlassian.net/browse/"||
[Issue].CurrentHierarchyMember.Key||")"
END

Set measure formatting to markdown so eazyBI will transform this string to a clickable link in the report.

Note this field will be clickable also when you download the report to a PDF file.
