Surface versions, projects, components etc with Super search dashboard gadgets (Bonus: Issue count)

Jira has long been the go-to platform for project management and issue tracking. Its vast ecosystem of apps (aka add-ons, plugins) make it incredibly adaptable to various business needs.

We recently released the 'Super search' app, bridging the gap between what Jira offers and the advanced searching prowess needed by teams today. I’m thrilled to introduce two brand-new features of the Super search app - Dashboard Gadgets and Issue Count. Both have been developed to provide Jira users with a more enriched and efficient experience.

Dashboard Gadget: Super Search - Result List

Jira dashboards play a pivotal role in offering a consolidated view of information. The introduction of the 'Super search - Result list' gadget is an evolution in this area. Here are a few scenarios demonstrating its applicability:

Streamlined Release Management: Release managers juggling multiple Jira projects can now have an overview of all upcoming releases for the next six (or 3 or whatever you need) months. This ensures that releases are seamless, on-time, and every team is aligned.

This is what the underlying configuration looks like:

Project Prioritization: For those managing multiple projects or categorizing projects based on certain criteria, the ability to keep a curated list of essential Jira projects right on the dashboard is a boon. No more sifting through projects, the ones you need are front and center.

This is what the underlying configuration looks like:


Sprint Oversight: Managing multiple scrum teams? Super Search ensures you can skim through all the active sprints across different projects at a glance. This aids in resource allocation, assessing progress, and ensuring sprint goals are on track.
For above use case, the underlying set up would be like:

Component-Centric Decisions: For teams where decisions revolve around specific components associated with Jira issues, this gadget allows a quick view of components led by particular individuals. It makes delegation and monitoring simpler and more efficient.
Below configuration will result in a list showing relevant set of components:

Which will look like this:

One can easily spot by looking at the above search results that while Mahesh is leading one component, Anand is not leading any component from the configured projects.

Gamifying Dashboard Usage: Looking to boost the use of Jira dashboards in your team? Display the most popular dashboards across the company to induce a sense of competition and encourage adoption.

In this case, you can query something as peculiar as number of people who have starred (or marked a dashboard as favorite) that dashboard. That's how deep Super search for Jira allows you to go.

For which the underlying configuration will be:


Issue Count: More than Just Numbers

Every entity in Jira carries weight. The introduction of the issue count feature takes this weight and makes it tangible. Here's how:

Version Insights: For teams keen on understanding their productivity, showcasing the issue count for all versions that went live in the last month provides an insight into the volume of changes being pushed. It's a testament to the team's capabilities and offers a snapshot of monthly achievements.

For example, check below configuration that surfaces versions released in the current year to date along with issue count against each one of the versions. Both, configuration & the results, are displayed below.


Balanced Project Size: For those who like to keep tabs on the magnitude of different projects, listing the issue count alongside project names and categories is invaluable. It ensures that projects don't grow too bulky and helps in efficient allocation of resources.

Component Analysis: Get a quick comparative view of the issue count for various components. It's a proactive measure to ensure that one component doesn't overshadow others, maintaining a balanced focus and attention distribution

Bringing It All Together

The Super search app’s recent features stand testimony to the commitment towards making Jira more intuitive, actionable, and tailored to every team’s unique needs. The Dashboard Gadgets, especially the 'Super search - Result list,' offers a sharper, finer lens to view crucial data. Meanwhile, the Issue Count ensures that teams are always aware of the volume and magnitude of their tasks.

Use cases apart, what stands out is the intention behind these features. They don’t just add functionality but aim at easing the day-to-day operations of teams, making data more accessible, understandable, and actionable.

The screenshots that accompany this article paint a clear picture. But, as always, the real magic lies in experiencing these features firsthand. Dive in, experiment, and let Super search transform your Jira experience.


Your feedback is the cornerstone of our innovation. So, as you explore these features, let us know how they're reshaping your Jira journey!
