Gadgets for JIRA applications

Gadgets let you customize the information that appears on dashboards in JIRA applications (or on your wallboards, if you use dashboards for that purpose). This page lists all of the gadgets available for JIRA applications and which ones they're available for.

Gadget JIRA Core JIRA Software JIRA Service Desk Use it to

Activity Stream

(tick) (tick) (tick) See the activity in your instance: it's like a Facebook feed for your instance!

Sprint Burndown Gadget

  (tick)  

See the burndown for a given sprint in a handy line chart. 

Sprint Health Gadget

  (tick)  

Seeing a summary of the issues in a sprint in a handy color-coded bar graph.

  Notes...
  • The colors in this gadget match the colors in your column configuration.

  • The work completed is calculated based on the estimation statistic used for your board. This is reflected by the green part of the progress bar. For example, if you have 50 story points in a sprint and you have 3 issues with 10 story points that have been resolved, the 'Work complete' will be 20% (i.e. 10 out of 50 story points).

  • The gadget won't reflect the progress from work logged in the 'Remaining Estimate' and 'Time Spent' fields in JIRA.

  • Adding or removing an issue from a sprint, after it has started is considered a change of scope. The percentage is calculated using the statistic that is configured for the board. For example, if you started a sprint with 50 story points and add an issue with 5 story points, the Sprint Health gadget would show a 10% scope change.

  • If you add/remove issues that don't have estimates, the scope change will not be altered.

  • If you're using Time Tracking, Scope Change will not be shown.

  • The "blocker" field counts all blockers that are in 'To Do' or 'In Progress'.
