I'm trying to find a way to show the results of a JQL filter directly on a Jira issue screen. It can be in a panel, tab or custom field I dont mind.
I have had a look around on the Marketplace and on this community and not found anything obvious.
Hope someone out there has done someting similar and can help!
There's no way to do this natively, as you have described it. The issue view isn't really a place to be displaying arbitrary lists of other issues out of context.
Could you explain why you want to do this? I mean what problem would it solve for the person viewing an issue?
I ask because there are apps that can add panels that will list issues, but they all do it for a good reason. If we knew why you're trying to do this, we may be able to identify one that does it.
I want to be able to display a group of bugs that are all linked by a common identifier. Very often our bugs affect multiple branches of code. The way we track this is by having a bug created for each branch. They are then known as branch siblings.
In Jira I have a transition to create a branch sibling that creates a new issue, creates a unique idetifier and links the issues together using a custom issue link.
I can see the issue links on the screen but this only shows issues that have direct links to one another. Our users would like to see the whole sibling group when viewing any issue within the group.
Therefore I thought some kind of JQL filter using the unique sibling group ID displayed on the bug screen would be the answer.
Makes sense, it's a bit like the issue-links but in more depth.
I'd look towards the issue matrix app Alex mentioned, but also maybe the issue hierarchy app or Canvas.
I'm not sure I can think of an app that would give you a panel directly in an issue view though, not in Cloud.
The other thing I might want to have a look at is using Epics for your sibling groups? Might that work?
Scanning the above answers, two points to consider:
A different (native) approach that I've used for this sort of thing is to create a saved Filter with the JQL, or a Confluence page based on such a filter, which necessarily displays the results in a separate browser window or tab.
Then I add a new Shortcut to the left sidebar of the Jira project to the Filter results or Confluence page.
The Confluence page approach allows for additional text and formatting (e.g. consistent column selection and ordering).
The net result is one-click access to that data from the Jira project. It's not as slick as being embedded into each issue. And it can't be issue-specific. This is a more general approach to this class of problem.
To extend this idea, it would probably be possible to use a Custom URL Field that is not editable and use Automation to dynamically generate a URL like
But yeah, just a link, not embedded.
On the other hand, it's "free". :-}
