How to Export Insight Tables and Build the Relationships with Issues Table

Tableau connector for Jira allows users to export Insight Asset Management data if the Insight Asset Management plug-in is installed.

 

How to export Insight tables

While creating a Data Source, go to Insight tab and select from the tables available for exporting.

Each table contains a subset of fields. To select/deselect particular fields from the table expand the table and select/deselect fields.

For now the following tables are available for exporting:

  • Object Schema - contains all the infromation about Insight schemas existing in Jira

  • Object - contains all the infromation about Objects existing in schemas

  • Object Type - contains all the infromation about Object Types existing in schemas

  • Object Type Attribute - contains all the infromation about Object Type Attributes existing in schemas

  • Status Type - contains all the infromation about Status Types

  • Role - contains all the infromation about Roles

  • Insight Attribute Value - contains all the infromation about Objects' Attribute Values

 

 

To export Insight custom fields, while creating a Data Source go to Jira Core tab, expand Issue Custom Fields Table and find Insight custom fields in custom fields’ subset.

Please note: you should know the name of your Insight custom fields to select them from the overall Custom Fields subset.

 

Every Insight Custom field will be imported into Tableau as separate Table with the prefix ‘Insight’ and custom field ID at the end.

Example:

Insight custom field name: Manufacturer

 

 

 

 

After importing into Tableau, Insight custom field Manufacturer will be imported

  • as a separate table

  • with the prefix ‘Insight’ for easy identification

  • with the custom field ID at the end

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Every Insight Custom field table has 3 columns:

  • Issue ID - Issue ID where Insight Custom field has value (this column can be used for creating relationships between custom field and Issues table)

  • Issue Key - Issue Key where Insight Custom field has value (this column can be used for creating relationships between custom field and Issues table)

  • Custom field name - holds the value of Insight Custom field

 

Note: Values for multiselect Insight Custom fields are presented in the table as separate row for each Insight Custom field value
