Usage statistics

This documentation page describes the latest eazyBI version 4.7 (for Jira Server & Data Center). Usage statistics is not available for Jira Cloud.


On this page:

Overview

Usage statistics is an optional eazyBI feature which can be used to analyze eazyBI usage using eazyBI. If enabled then eazyBI report execution requests and source data imports are stored in a special usage statistics eazyBI account and usage statistics reports and dashboards can be created to analyze eazyBI usage.

Settings

Usage statistics can be enabled in eazyBI additional settings by Jira system administrator.

After saving the additional settings, a special (usage statistics) eazyBI account will be created which will be available to Jira system administrators. You can grant access to other Jira users or user groups to this eazyBI account.

A set of default reports and a dashboard of these reports will be created in this account. You can use these reports to see the overview of daily usage, see top executed reports and dashboards, reports with errors or slow reports.

Report execution data are stored in a separate eazyBI database schema – eazybi_jira_dwh_stats on MySQL, dwh_stats on PostgreSQL or MS SQL, the same eazyBI user schema on Oracle. Report execution results are cached and the cache is cleared each 10 minutes – so you might see up to 10 minutes old data in your reports.

eazyBI will start collecting usage statistics once eazyBI advanced settings are updated and new feature is enabled.

By default, 1-year history of usage statistics data is stored. Older usage statistics entries are deleted during the eazyBI startup. You can change how long history is stored by adding following settings in advanced settings:

[usage_statistics]
keep_for = "3 months"

You can disable usage statistics by disabling usage statistics option in additional settings. When usage statistics are disabled, then you can still view the collected historical usage statistics. If you do not need the history, then the (usage statistics) account can be deleted by the owner of this account.

Data model

Here is a list of measures and dimensions that are available in usage statistics reports.

Measures

Report ExecutionsA total number of first-time report executions when the report is opened (repeated executions are not counted when users change page selection or do drill actions).
Report Execution DurationTotal first-time report execution time in seconds. Use the Average Execution Duration calculated measure to get the average.
Report Execution ErrorsA total count of errors during the first-time report executions. Use the Report Execution Errors % calculated measure to see it as a percentage from total executions.
Active UsersUnique count of users who used reports according to the selection of other dimensions.
Active AccountsUnique count of eazyBI accounts from which reports were used.
Active ReportsUnique count of reports which were used.
Active Dashboards
