Formatting an Issue Description



       <another tag="attribute"/>




This is {{file.txt}}


This is *bold*

Color (it seems to only work for blocks)

 some red block

Custom Issue Search

A custom search is performed by assembling and executing a custom filter.

Issues Worked on Since Yesterday Midnight

updated > startOfDay(-1d) AND timeSpent > 0 AND assignee = ofeodorov ORDER BY updatedDate ASC

My Open Issues in the Current Sprint for a Specific Project

project = FDIS AND assignee = currentUser() AND resolution = Unresolved AND sprint = "Sprint 8, 1/4" ORDER BY updated DESC

Issues Associated with a Certain Sprint


project = "ABC" AND resolution = Unresolved AND sprint = 'Sprint 100 (SEP 16 - SEP 29)' ORDER BY priority DESC

Sprint Operations

List Sprints Available in for a Project

This list issues associated with the specified sprints.

sprint in closedSprints() AND project = "XYZ" 
sprint in openSprints() AND project = "XYZ"

Alternative: Diamond → Projects → Specific Project → Specific Board → Reports → Sprint Report → Dropdown List with Sprints

Change Sprint Name

Project → Backlog View → Edit Sprint name in there.

Clear Issues of Completed Sprint Information

TODO - apparently this is difficult, the sprint information gets "imprinted" in the issue as the sprint rolls. Maybe create a filter and then ... Bulk change all ... issues.

Effort Estimates per User per Sprint

Diamond → ... → Project and Board → Backlog → Drop-down the current sprint → ... at the right of the users' icons ("View summary of assigned work")

Issues per User per Sprint

assignee = currentUser() AND sprint in openSprints()

Backlog Operations

Diamond → Projects → Select Project → Left Hand Menu → Backlog

More on backlog:

Dashboard Operations


Create a Dashboard

Top-left Jira icon → Dashboards → ... → Create a dashboard If the dashboard is "starred", it is easily retrievable from the "Starred and Recent" left-side menu.

Add a gadget. A common and useful gadget is "Filter Results", which renders the result of a saved filter.

Filter Operations

Filter Concepts

Create a Custom Named Filter


Issues and Filters → Search Issues → create a search:

status = 'Closed' order by updated DESC

Save filter.

By default, a saved filter will be only visible to you.

Delete a Filter

Top Filter Menu → View all Filters → locate the filter (possibly using search) → Three dots icon → Delete
