This documentation is for an old version of Dataplane Reports.

View the latest documentation, or the list of documentation for all versions.

Report results may include charts, tabular data or both. Reports that have both charts and data will have a Report tab showing the chart, and a Data tab showing the tabular data.

Working with Charts

Next to the summary of the report, Dataplane will display a number of statistics related to the output data, if the underlying report supports it, such as the total average, minimum and maximum. To configure which statistics are available (or to disable them entirely), see the section entitled Configuring the Display of Statistics.

When viewing chart output, you may also place the mouse pointer over individual lines or bars in the chart to display a popup/tooltip that displays the underlying value, as shown below:

Drilling Through to Underlying Issues from Charts

Most charts include the ability to drill through to the underlying list of issues that each bar or plot point represents. In order to see the issues behind a specific bar or plot on the chart, place the mouse over the bar or plot point as above, wait for the popup to appear, and then click the "### issues" link in the popup. Dataplane will display a list of all corresponding issues in a new browser tab in the standard Jira Issue Navigator.

Dataplane places no limits on the number of issues that can be viewed in the drill-through, but Jira itself comes with a default limit of 1,000 issues in search results. If you wish to drill through to a larger number of issues, you can increase this limit by following Atlassian's instructions for tuning the maximum number of issues visible in Issue Navigator searches.


Working with Tabular Data

The data behind every chart is always available in the Data tab, as shown below:

Drilling Through to Underlying Issues from Tabular Data

In tabular data, the "# of Issues" column can be used to drill through to the underlying issue data. In order to see the issues that correspond to a certain row, click on the link in the table. In some cases, Dataplane may need a few moments to prepare the report results before they can be displayed in the Issue Navigator. If you need to drill through to more than 1,000 issues, please see the section above on increasing the drill-through limits.

Searching Report Data

The table of results data includes an easy-to-use search feature. Just type any text into the search box in the top right corner of the table and the tabular results will be filtered to show only those rows where that text string is found within any of the columns.

For example, to filter a list of 52 results down to just those entries for January, type "jan" into the search box to show just those records. Multiple words or word-fragments can be used in the search box and should be separated by spaces. For example, "jan amber" can be used to filter the tabular data down to January data assigned to user Amber. When multiple words or word fragments are used, the table search engine will only match on rows that contain all the specified words or word-fragments somewhere within the row's data.

All tabular data searches are case insensitive.

Sorting Report Data

All of the columns in the tabular report data can be sorted, ascending or descending, by clicking on the column headers. If the data for your report includes more than one page of information, a set of paging controls will also appear, allowing you to flip through the data one page at a time. Multiple columns can be sorted at the same time by holding down the <shift> key while clicking multiple columns. The sort order can be also changed from ascending to descending by clicking the same column heading twice in a row.

Drilling Through to Underlying Issues from Tabular Data

Most Dataplane reports also allow the user to drill through to the underlying list of issues for a specific report row. To do this, simply click on any of the linked values in the # of Issues or related column on the Data tab of the report output. The resulting list of issues will open directly in a new browser tab in the standard Jira Issue Navigator.
