Organizing Issues and Issue Types by Component in Release Notes Template

I'm attempting to organize my Release Notes template so that it looks something like this:

Component

  • Bug
    • Issue 1
    • Issue 2...

  • Improvement
    • Issue 1
    • Issue 2...

  • Task/SOP
    • Issue 1
    • Issue 2...

  • Sub-task
    • Issue 1
    • Issue 2...

OR

Bug

  • Component A
    • Issue 1
    • Issue 2...
  • Component B
    • Issue 1...

Improvement

  • Component A
    • Issue 1
    • Issue 2...

...


Is this possible? I know you can get all the Issues from an IssueType - but is there any way to say 'component.issueType.issues', or even 'issuetype.component.issues'.

If you have a suggestion for another direction that would be great as well.

Thanks!

The code below works for me (Jira 4.4). It's of course not the cleanest way, so feel free to refactor in the next answers.

## GET COMPONENTS FOR THE CURRENT PROJECT
#set ($components = [])
#foreach ($issueType in $issueTypes)
	#if ($issueType.issues.size() > 0)
		#foreach($issue in $issueType.issues)
			#if ($issue.componentObjects.size() > 0)
				#foreach($component in $issue.componentObjects)
					#if ($components.contains($component.name) == false)
						#set( $echoOf = $components.add($component.name))
					#end
				#end
			#end
		#end
	#end
#end
##
##
#foreach ($component in $components)
	<h3>$component</h3>
	<ul>
	#foreach ($issueType in $issueTypes)
		#if($issueType.issues.size() > 0)
			#set ($tmpIssuesArray = [])
			#foreach ($issue in $issueType.issues)
				#if ($issue.componentObjects.size() > 0)
					#foreach($issuecomponent in $issue.componentObjects)
						#if ($issuecomponent.name == $component)
							#set( $echoOf = $tmpIssuesArray.add($issue))
						#end
					#end
				#end
			#end
			
			#if ($tmpIssuesArray.size() > 0)
				<li>
				<h4>$textUtils.htmlEncode($issueType.name)</h4>
				<ul>
				#foreach ($issue in $tmpIssuesArray)
					<li>[<a href='$requestContext.canonicalBaseUrl/browse/$issue.key'>$issue.key</a>] - $textUtils.htmlEncode($issue.summary)</li>
				#end
				</ul>
				</li>
			#end
			
		#end
	#end
	</ul>
#end

This worked great for me in Jira 7. Exactly what I was looking for. All I had to do was replace the &lt; and &gt; notation with < and > respectivly. Thanks @Krzysztof Serok

I was not able to get this to work for our JIRA v.6.4.6 instance.  I followed the instructions to "Add a new custom style for Jira release notes" and added header formatting from the Text release notes but this component report shows a blank page.  Has anyone confirmed that the above template works, or does is it missing something?
