JIRA integration with Grafana is possible or not?

Hi, currently I am doing a POC in my company for an efficient method or software to display the real-time agile metrics with the data being fetched from JIRA and Github.
I was going through Grafana, and the UI is looking so attractive and promising. I am having a doubt whether the datasources can include the JIRA and Github as well for this software.

Your comment would be highly appreciable.

What sort of metrics are you looking for specifically?

This is definitely possible. Check out https://www.citrix.com/blogs/2015/11/05/information-radiation-with-influxdb-and-grafana/ for some inspiration


I should add that you can use the SimpleJson data source plugin to integrate against jira or any other api.

Just google grafana and jira may give you some more options.


Hi Abhishek,

have you finished your PoC successfully or rather can you share your results?

We also think about doing some DevOps metric reporting by using grafana based on JIRA data.

Thanks a lot in adavance

Hello, you can use https://github.com/AndreyVMarkelov/jira-prometheus-exporter

I’ve been looking for something like this too but never found a solution.

So I created a plugin to do this: https://github.com/bluefrg/jira-grafana-json-datasource

I am doing POC to pull data from jira and display reports on grafana. I imported the jira dashboard for grafana but did not know how to pull data from jira. The grafana display says no data points. Can anyone help me with the resources for this.

I am also doing POC grafana dashboard integrated with Concourse CI and JIRA . anyone done poc or any integration guide. please share… thanks in advance


have you finished your PoC successfully ?

I am trying to use SimpleJson and Jira REST API but it doesn’t work (probably i do wrong things).

I am not able to get data from JSON in my Dashboard (work with fake-simple-json-datasource)…

Does it possible to populate a Dashboard with SimpleJson and REST API and resquest like that : https://jira.atlassian.com/rest/api/2/search?jql=project+%3D+10240+AND+issuetype+%3D+1+ORDER+BY+key+DESC&maxResults=0

Or we have to write some SQL request ?


If you are looking for a no-coding solution, I can recommend you Skyvia. It is a third-party tool that allows you to load data from JIRA to Grafana (https://skyvia.com/data-integration/analyze-jira-with-grafana. This integration isn’t performed directly - Skyvia provides it through a database or cloud data warehouse with automatic schema creation. After that you can connect the database\data warehouse to Grafana directly.
By the way, Skyvia is Jira’s partner. You can find them on the Atlassian marketplace.
