Defect Trend by Iteration/Sprint Dashboard Panel

This feature is available in Ultimate edition only.



The Analytics Defect Trend by Sprint/Iteration dashboard panel allows you to understand how defects a Project/Program are trending at the end of each Sprint/Iteration. 

Because the bars in this panel represent a Sprint/Iteration, the panel requires a schedule.  If the selected Project does not contain a schedule, the panel will not display any results.


Where to Find This Panel

This panel is available on any of the following Analytics dashboards:

  • Portfolio > Executive Dashboard

  • Program > Product Owner Dashboard

  • Team > Dashboard

  • Team > Team Dashboard

  • Team > Quality Dashboard

  • Team > ScrumMaster Dashboard

If the panel is not visible, you can add it following the instructions in Adding a Panel to a Dashboard.


Each bar on this chart represents a single sprint/iteration.  The height of the bar indicates the today number of Defects, in the selected Project Program on the last day of that iteration.  By default the bars are grouped by Priority; however this can be configured in the Panel Parameters.
