Jira Issue List Now Available to All Custom Charts Users

Custom Chart for jira issue lists

Old Street Solutions is excited to share that one of our most powerful gadgets is now available across all platforms, Cloud, Server, and Data Center: Issue List!

What is the Issue List?

Issue List is a gadget and macro that comes with Custom Charts for Jira and Custom Jira Charts for Confluence. It allows users to generate a list of Jira issues on a Jira dashboard or Confluence page. It’s very similar to the out-of-the-box Filter Results gadget, but has some additional benefits, including:

  • The ability to dynamically filter Issue list using our Simple Search gadget or macro
  • Multiple options to choose from as the Source of Issue List, not just Saved Filters

In the following video, you will learn how to effectively use Issue List with the Simple Search gadget:

Issue List is great for users who are looking to display a variety of information about their Jira issues all in one spot. Instead of leaving the dashboard and building the query using the Jira issue search, teams can see what’s most valuable to them in an easy-to-read list on their dashboard. This list sets alongside the rest of your reporting, saving everyone the time and effort of going to multiple places to view their data.

Ready to use the Issue List? Follow the steps below!

While editing your Jira dashboard or Confluence page, add the Custom Charts Issue List gadget or macro. Once you add it, the Issue List will automatically be in edit mode. Adjust the Source of the list and the Columns to display in the list.

First, you’ll set the Source. Decide which Jira issues appear in the Issue List by selecting projects, existing Saved Filters, writing your own Jira Query Language (JQL), or connecting to Simple Search (just like Custom Charts!).

Next, you can decide on the Columns you want to display in the Issue List. Use the right side of the gadget to control the fields that appear for each Jira issue. Fields will appear as separate columns on the Issue List (just like in the Issue Navigator in Jira). A few fields are selected by default, but you can add, remove, and rename the fields by using the icons in this panel!

All the Custom Charts for Jira gadgets on a dashboard together

Custom Charts for Jira is the most powerful and effective for reporting when users add all of our gadgets and macros to a dashboard or page. See the example below of a Jira dashboard with the Simple Search, Issue List, and Custom Charts gadgets all together!
