Attribute Statistics

This section shows how the Attribute Statistics Dashboard Gadget presents data from AD in Jira

Attribute Statistics was created to visually present useful information about Jira usage and statistics.

It reads users’ data from AD and shows the most important facts about issue reporters and assignees. You can check where most of the issues come from (in terms of cities, teams or roles) and display them in the form of different charts.

Example

Number of tickets submitted by users from several office locations, displayed as a bar chart and pie chart:
