Create Issue Matrices

On this page:

Overview

After installing Issue Matrix Cloud, all you need to do to start lifting the work in your teams and projects is to create Issue Matrices. The issue matrices are matrix type configuration elements that have context, type and data configuration. Check the Configuration options section in this document for more details. You can create as many Issue Matrices as you like in different projects and issue types. Navigate to your project’s settings and start creating Issue Matrices. They will completely change the issue views in your projects and will change how you and your teams gather, understand, and evaluate the information you need in Jira Cloud.

Create Issue Matrices

You can create four different types of Issue Matrices:

Issue Matrix allows you to have completely different information in the issue views for the different projects. You just need to create different Issue Matrices in different projects.

Configuration options

Each Issue Matrix configuration consists of three main sections with options: Context, Type and Data.

Context

The context options allow you to define the project and the issue types where the particular Issue Matrix will be visible. Choose a project and issue types for each Issue Matrix.

Type

The options in this section allow you to define and choose the type of the Issue Matrix and the issues that it will contain. Here you can change the type of an Issue Matrix to Sub-tasks, Issue Links or Epic at any time.

Data

You have to choose columns, to create an Issue Matrix successfully. You can choose most of the custom fields in your Jira Cloud instance and set them as columns in the Issue Matrix panel. Check which custom fields are not supported due to specifics in the implementation.

Issue Matrix Cloud allows you to customize the width of each column to achieve better overall visualization and alignment. You can specify the column width in pixels ("px") or as a percentage of the table width ("%"). Examples: 20px, 25%.

Initially, when you choose a field from the list to show as a column in the Issue Matrix panel, the column width is set to "Auto". "Auto" stands for automatic sizing, and the column width, in this case, is automatically determined by the browser. If you want to set the width of a column back to Auto, delete the contents of the Width field.
