Sharing Datasets in Jira - You Asked, and We Delivered! Exciting News for Our Jira Cloud Family!

We are thrilled to announce a fresh update to ActionableAgile™️ Analytics for Jira Cloud that's all about enhancing teamwork and boosting efficiency. Introducing the Dataset Sharing feature—our most requested enhancement yet. We listened to your feedback, and we delivered. This feature is designed to streamline your workflow, save time, and ensure everyone is on the same page with shared datasets.

The Power of Dataset Sharing

Imagine this: no more repetitive tasks of every team member creating identical datasets. With Dataset Sharing, you can create a dataset once and share it with anyone in Jira. Yes, it’s true—sharing really is caring in the world of data.

Unlimited Sharing

We’re not just talking about the ability to share a few datasets. With this update, you can share an unlimited number of datasets. Think of all the time you'll save and the collective sigh of relief as everyone stays aligned with the same set of data.

Before and After Dataset Sharing

Before Dataset Sharing: If everyone on a team wanted to view a dataset unless someone shared their screen, each member would have to create the dataset individually. This process was not only time-consuming but also led to inconsistencies in how the data was set up and interpreted.

After Dataset Sharing: Now, one person can create the dataset and share it with the entire team. If you need help managing it or want others to edit it, you can add them as Admins. There are two levels of permissions:

Admins: Can view, share, edit, and delete the dataset.

Viewers: Can view the dataset as configured and use available item filters.

This structure ensures that only authorized individuals can make changes, maintaining the integrity of your data.

Benefits of Dataset Sharing

Saving Time

Creating a dataset once and sharing it with your team saves a significant amount of time. Multiply the setup time by the number of people on your team, and you can see the massive efficiency gains.


When everyone had to set up datasets individually, variations often led to different interpretations of the data. With Dataset Sharing, everyone views the same dataset, ensuring consistency and accuracy in data analysis.

Streamlined Collaboration

Dataset Sharing fosters better collaboration by allowing team members to work from a single source of data. Admins can manage and update datasets, while viewers can interact with the data without altering it. This streamlined approach promotes a more cohesive and productive way of work.

Enabling Dataset Sharing in Jira Cloud

If you can't access the sharing feature, your Jira admin likely hasn't upgraded it or has disabled it. Contact your Jira admin and ask them to upgrade or enable the feature.
