Summary widgets: drill down to referenced items

You can drill down to referenced items, such as features or application modules, by clicking a graph section or table data.

View items in a grid or in a smart list. You can sort, filter, group by, and search for items. In a grid view, you can add or remove columns.

Note: For trend-based graphs, drilldown to the referenced items is not available.

Hide/show data

Click an item in the widget's legend to show or hide data in the widget.

Example: In the widget on the left, we clicked New and Ready for R&D to hide features that are not yet ready to be documented. On the right, the items are hidden, and you can see that the widget items are not selected.

Sort by clusters

You can use the grouped bar chart display to show multiple bar clusters within a single widget, to compare results for different items for multiple fields.

For this metric, you define two metrics, choose one or more data sets.

When using a single data set, you can show different attributes of the same entity as different bars within the widget. For example, you can show:

  • A feature's estimated story points vs. the actual story points per team or sprint.

  • New defects vs. fixed defects per sprint.

When using multiple data sets, you can show the entity information based on multiple fields.

Single data set example

The following example shows two metrics with a single data set. One metric shows the number of defects fixed in the release, while the other shows the total number of defects detected in the release.

Multiple data set example

The following example shows two metrics with multiple data sets. One metric shows the number of tests that did not run, and the other shows tests with all other statuses. The Group by filter is used to distinguish between the statuses.

Insight cards

Insight cards are pop-up windows associated with dashboard widgets that are marked with the Insight icon. Insight cards provide a summary view in the form of a graph, with a linkable list of items whose values were included in the widget.

For details, see Insight cards.
