Visualizing a Risk Matrix
Generate a REST Endpoint with ScriptRunner
If you already have a preferred scripting language and method, you can easily do the same outside of VisualScript using any language and any hosting solution. When you do so, you'll just need to expose a REST endpoint that returns markup that a VisualScript gadget can connect to.
In this case, similar to the PI planning project, our partner Adaptavist used ScriptRunner to create a REST endpoint.
When building the model of the data we modified the column and row headers to represent impact and probability. Then, we pulled out the custom fields for impact and probability. Once we translated this model to VSON markup, we were ready to build a visual.
Add a Gadget to the Dashboard
Our ScriptRunner REST endpoint takes a single parameter, project key, and with this single parameter we can get a easy to comprehend view of where clusters of risk, or lack of risk, exist for our project.
