Color Codes for Bar Charts not working in 8.36.0

    Hi,

    in Jama 8.36.0 the color coding for the bar charts does not work anymore for the gadgets that can be added to the project dashboard.
    In the past versions the bars had individual colors (as they still have in the preview when adding a gadget).
    The colors codes for the pie charts luckily still work as in the past versions.

    Hi Anna,

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

    Can you please add some screenshots of the behavior you're seeing?

    Sure thing, Kimberly:
    Bar chart 8.25.1

    ...and this is the same diagram in 8.36.0:

    Hi Anna,

    Thank you for providing those screenshots. They're very helpful!

    I'm not able though to reproduce this behavior on my own 8.36 instance. If you're comfortable with this, can you also send screenshots of the filter your bar chart is based on and also the configuration settings for the bar chart? If not, we can work on this together through a ticket. Just let me know and I can get one started on your behalf.

    Also, do you know if this behaves the same in all browsers?

    Thanks Anna!

    Hi Kimberly,
    I think I found the mechanic of when color coding is applied and when not in 8.36:
    If the field is based on a pick list and the values of the picklist have a color configured (Admin -> Pick Lists -> Values) then the color of that pick list value is used:
    Coloured pick list
    Bar chart with color
    If no color is configured, a default color is used.
    If the field is not a pick list (like "Item Type" as in our example) a default color is used as well - but only for the Bar Chart. When configuring the same filter and field for a Pie Chart the color coding works again:

    Bar vs. Pie Chart
    I hope this clarifies the issue - it's not a big one, but has changed from 8.25 to 8.36.
    Regards
    Anna

    Hi Anna,

    You are quite the troubleshooter! Thank you for sending that information. I was able to see the differences in the colors of a bar chart based Item Type between versions 8.25.2 and 8.36. I will be submitting this behavior as a bug and will provide the bug ID for both you and Laura once I've got it submitted.

    Thank you!
