Insight Asset Management

Insight Asset Management data import is available starting from the eazyBI version 4.4.0 for Jira Server.
Insight versions 4.x and 5.x are supported by eazyBI.

On this page:

Overview

You can use eazyBI to analyze Insight objects by selected object attributes.

If Insight Asset Management is installed then you can see Insight available when adding a new source application import in the Source Data tab:

It is recommended to create a separate eazyBI account for Insight data import to avoid conflicts with other dimension names in other data cubes. Only one Insight schema objects can be imported in one eazyBI account. Please create separate eazyBI accounts for each Insight schema from which you would like to import data.

Insight import options

After selecting the Insight data source and specifying the cube name (you can leave the default Insight cube name) you will see the import options page:

Select the Insight schema from which you would like to import all objects. As mentioned above, create separate eazyBI accounts if you would like to import data from several insight schemas.

Select regular import frequency and specify how frequently automatic data import should be performed. Initial data import will perform full import of all schema objects. The next imports (if import options are not changed) will be incremental imports and will process only created and updated objects.

Select which attributes should be used as default Object Status attributes (see below description of dimensions and measures that are based on the default status attributes).

Then click Show available custom fields to see all object type attributes that are available for import:

Object key, name and status attributes are imported by default. The other attributes are available for selection here and are grouped by object types:

  • List-of-value type attributes (object references, users, user groups, projects, versions, select lists, additional statuses) can be imported as dimensions.
  • Numeric and date fields can be imported as measures.
  • Any attribute can be imported as Object dimension member properties.

Dimensions and measures

The following standard dimensions and measures will be created after data are imported.

Dimensions

Object TypeAll object types that have objects.

Object Status

Current status of objects. It is based on the first object attribute that has a Status type and has a name from the Status attributes import option.
The additional Category hierarchy groups statuses by their category.

ObjectList of all individual objects, grouped by the Object Type hierarchy level. Use this dimension when creating detailed reports with individual objects and their properties.
Object History TypeThe type of object history entries (Added Value, Changed Value, Deleted Value etc.).
Use to analyze Object history changes and Objects changed measures.
Object History ActorThe author (user or automated system) of object history entries.
Use to analyze Object history changes and Objects changed measures.
Object History AttributeThe attribute which was changed in object history entries.
Use to analyze Object history changes and Objects changed measures.
Object Transition StatusAll statuses that appear in the default status attribute changes (the same statuses as in Object Status dimension based on the Status attributes import option).
Use to analyze Transitions to status, Transitions from status, Hours in transition status measures.
Object TransitionAll individual status transitions with names in the format “From status => To status”.
Use to analyze Transitions to status, Transitions from status, Hours in transition status measures.
Jira IssueDetailed Jira issues that are linked to objects.
Use to analyze Issues created, Issues due, Issues resolved measures.
TimeThe standard time dimension with a Year / Quarter / Month / Day hierarchy and a Year / Week / Day hierarchy.

In addition dimensions for selected object type attributes will be created.

Measures

Objects createdTotal number of created objects that match selected dimension members.
You can drill into the detailed list of object from this measure.

Object history changes

Count of object history entries that show the number of times the objects were changed. Can be filtered by Object History Type, Object History Actor, Object History Attribute and Time dimensions, as well as by any other dimensions (the other dimensions are based on the current attribute values of objects).
You can drill into the detailed object history entries from this measure.

Objects changed

Similar to the previous but shows uniqe count of objects that have these history changes.
You can drill into the detailed list of object from this measure.

Transitions to statusHow many times during the selected Time dimension period the object status has been changed to the status that is selected in the Object Transition Status dimension (or only transitions that are selected in the Object Transition dimension).
Transitions from statusHow many times during the selected Time dimension period the object status has been changed from the status that is selected in the Object Transition Status dimension (or only transitions that are selected in the Object Transition dimension).
Hours in transition statusThe total number of hours that objects have stayed in the status selected in the Object Transition Status dimension. It is calculated when the object status is changed from this status to a different status (when the Transitions from status measure is recorded) and will be shown on the Time dimension on the date when the transition from this status happened.
Objects with transitions to status
Objects with transitions from status
Unique count of objects which had transitions during selected Time dimension period to (or from) the status that is selected in the Object Transition Status dimension (or only transitions that are selected in the Object Transition dimension).
Issues created
Issues resolved
How many issues are created / resolved for matching objects in the selected Time period.
You can drill into the detailed list of issues from this measure.
Issues dueHow many issues are currently unresolved for matching objects.
You can drill into the detailed list of issues from this measure.

In addition the following measures will be created for additional selected attributes that are imported as measures:

Numeric Attribute sumIf Numeric Attribute is imported as a measure then this measure will show the total sum of numeric attribute values for matching objects.

Objects with Date Attribute

If Date Attribute is imported as a measure then this measure will show count of objects that have this date attribute value in the selected Time dimension period.

Calculated measures

Objects in transition status

How many objects when in the selected status of the Transition Status dimension at the end of the selected Time dimension period.

Average hours in transition status
Average days in transition status

Average hours / days that issue stayed in the status that is selected in the Transition status dimension.

Transition to status first date
Transition to status last date
Transition from status first date
Transition from status last date
The date and time when the first / last transition to / from the corresponding Transition Status (or the selected Transition) was performed.

In addition the following calculated measures will be created for additional selected attributes that are imported as properties:

Object AttributeIf Attribute is imported as a property then this measure will show the value of the property for the corresponding object. Should be used with detailed Object dimension members.

Import Insight custom fields for Jira issues

In addition to the described Insight data import, it is also possible to import Insight custom fields in eazyBI Jira issues import. When selecting available JIRA custom fields you can see and select defined Insight custom fields:
