Enable data import from Jira
Jira data import in the Private eazyBI is limited, and not all eazyBI Jira app features will be available in Private eazyBI.
If Jira is your main or primary data source, our recommendation is to use the eazyBI Jira app from Atlassian Marketplace.
In the Private eazyBI, you could modify import options for Jira standard custom fields and define calculated custom fields in Private eazyBI as you can do it with Jira add-on eazyBI advanced settings. Jira custom field advanced settings should be defined in
Jira custom field advanced settings could be defined globally or for some Jira site.
Jira site definition
Jira site should be defined in
eazybi.toml file before custom field definition.
You should use any name instead of XXX for naming the Site. You should use Jira base URL instead of ".."
Advanced settings for custom field
Global Jira custom field advanced settings should be defined:
where NNNNN is a custom field ID. This will start the block of configuration parameters for the NNNNN custom field. After that line, add any other custom field specification as described in Jira add-on eazyBI advanced settings.
Global settings could be used only for those custom fields with the same identification for all Jira instances. Custom field ID should match in all Jira instances to get imported properly. If custom field IDs do not match in your Jira instances please define this custom field for each site separately.
Jira custom field advanced settings for a particular site should be defined:
You should use the previously defined Site name for XXX and custom field ID instead of NNNNN. This will start the block of configuration parameters for the NNNNN custom field. After that line, add any other custom field specification as described in Jira add-on eazyBI advanced settings.
Custom fields with this configuration will be available in the Jira import options screen for selection after changes are saved in
In eazyBI, you can pre-calculate and import additional calculated custom fields based on Jira issue data. Those fields will be available just in eazyBI and not in Jira.
For example, If you have a larger number of Jira issues, it is better to import calculated custom fields and not to create calculated members with complex MDX formulas. Calculated custom fields are pre-calculated just once during Jira import and then saved in the eazyBI database and then eazyBI queries will perform much faster using pre-calculated data.
Make sure the source application is defined before the custom field
the custom field name (1st line) matches the pattern:
This custom field definition for Jira site XXX will enable change value import for a custom field with ID NNNNN:
Please use the correct Jira base URL instead of ".."
Data from Jira apps
eazyBI has integration with most of the popular Atlassian Marketplace Jira apps. Some app custom fields will be available, but to enable data import from
- Advanced Roadmaps
- Zephyr Scale Test Management for Jira
- Xray Test Management
- Zephyr Squad Test Management for Jira
you should specify the Jira database connection details in eazybi.toml file. The example below is for Jira site XXX with MySQL database connection.
For MSSQL, the Jira user should have DEFAULT_SCHEMA=<jira_database_name>
