If intervals type is Fixed Value, the intervals (20,40,60,80) will be

  • less than 20 issues

  • 20 issues and less than 40 issues

  • 40 issues and less than 60 issues

  • 60 issues and less than 80 issues

  • 80 issues or more

If the interval type is Percentage, the intervals will change dynamically with respect to the total number of matching issues from the Saved Filter.

  • If there are 100 matching issues, the criteria will be same.

  • If there are 200 matching issues, the lightest color will be assigned to 40 issues or less (20% x 200 issues)
