Defect Trend by Project Dashboard Panel

This feature is available in Ultimate edition only.



The Analytics Defect Trend by Project dashboard panel allows you to understand how defects in a group of projects are trending on the end date of those projects. 

The projects considered for the chart are based on your Dashboard project and program selection. If only a project is selected, then all child projects are considered.  When a program is selected, only projects in the program are considered. 


Where to Find This Panel

The Defect Trend Dashboard panel is available on any of the following Analytics dashboards. See Adding a Panel to a Dashboard for instructions.

  • Portfolio > Executive Dashboard

  • Program > Dashboard

  • Program > Product Owner Dashboard

  • Team > Team Dashboard

  • Team > Quality Dashboard

  • Team > ScrumMaster Dashboard


  • Each bar on the chart represents a single project.

  • The height of the bar indicates the today number of defects in that project on the last day of the project. 

  • If the project's end date has not occurred, the bar indicates the total number defects in that project today. 

  • By default the bars are grouped by priority; however this can be configured in the panel parameters.
