Custom Graph enables you to make a graph of your own choice by selecting specific criteria. You can create a pie or bar graph for the same criteria. This graph will show your selection in different colors and a numeric value to depict sum of each attribute. You can select any of your Project, any Item type, related item attributes, and respective attribute values. Date range can also be selected to fetch data for specific period of time.


Example graphs to depict “All Tasks status in pie” and “Epics status in bar” chart

Custom Graph Fields

Use these fields while defining a custom graph where Project, Item Type, Attribute, and Graph type are mandatory fields to fill a value.

Graph Fields Description

Show Date Range Check this option if you want a graph to fetch data for specific time period. Leaving this field empty will set default date range of the graph, i,e., from project “start date” to “current date”.

Decide your criteria

To create a useful graph, input your criteria properly. Graph fields help you provide a more specific criteria. Selecting multiple criteria will be added as AND operator in the query.

A Custom Graph Example

Let’s create an example Custom Graph; “User Story Special Tags Pie Chart”.

If you want to create a pie chart to show the number of User Stories with Special Tag values.You want to fetch this information without any date limit i.e. collect data since the project was created till today.

Your selection criteria look like:

Select Project “All team”
AND Item type is User Stories
AND Graph type is Pie chart
AND collect data for user story attribute “special tags”
AND select only special tags values (“customer feedback”, “QA suggestions”,…)
