Issue analytics for projects (PREMIUM ALL)

Introduced in GitLab 12.9.

Issue analytics is a bar graph which illustrates the number of issues created each month. The default time span is 13 months, which includes the current month, and the 12 months prior.

To access the chart:

  2. Select Analyze > Issue analytics.

You can also access the chart from the Value Streams Dashboard through the New issues drill-down report.

Hover over each bar to see the total number of issues.

To narrow the scope of issues included in the graph, enter your criteria in the Search or filter results... field. Criteria from the following list can be typed in or selected from a menu:

You can change the total number of months displayed by setting a URL parameter. For example, shows a total of 15 months for the chart in the group.
