It seems that this plugin do what i need https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.qotilabs.jira.rich-filters-plugin/server/overview
but i'm looking for free alternatives
Basically i want to filter result of other filter. I have the filter that i use in my gadgets. And i want to have ability add one more conditions to this gadget (like affected version for example) and change it dynamically and manually to exclude items from origin filter.
I use cloud version.
As you use Cloud, that specific plugin is not available to you, because it is only available for Server.
The free option you have at your disposal is using a JQL like:
<Your additional conditions> AND filter = <referenced filter name or filter id>
affectedVersion = 1.0 AND project = FOO AND filter = "The issues that matter"
Hope it helps.
What you can do is:
After that, you will be able to edit the new filter with additional conditions so that your gadgets are updated accordingly.
Should you not need to add any more conditions, you can add a condition which is matched by all issues in your instance, ie:
type is not EMPTY
It's interesting solution.
One more question. Could i make this solution more user friendly and create for example drop down field with several values (for example affected version like 1.0, 1.1, etc). And when user select something in drop down, after that immediately update gadgets result.
Is it possible?
Users can select the version from a dropdown menu once the Affects Version field is added in the basic view of the issue navigator this way:
If multiple users need to be able to change the version, then the solution is a bit more complex, as only the filter's owner can edit the filter's query.
For making that possible:
For the users to be able to use the dashboard so that all its gadgets are updated with their desired conditions, each of them must create a personal (not shared) filter named exactly "My Scope" (or the name you have chosen for the second filter) like described on step 4.
Once users create a so named filter, they can edit it afterwards as many times as needed, which means the same dashboard can present different info for different users simultaneously, depending on the query they have saved on their "My Scope" filter.
@William Sippl Nothing new under the sun. At least in regard to achieving that natively.
If you count with Script Runner, then you'll be able to get the sencond filter like this:
issueFunction in epicsOf("filter='My issue keys'")
Provided you have a saved filter with that name (My issue keys), which would look like this:
key in (EPIC-1, EPIC-57, EPIC-23)
Hope it helps.
I am using cloud version where quick filter does not support Dropdown list.
@Ignacio Pulgar, Your seems to be expert. I have similar query: Can I make links in 'Quick filter' visible or Invisible based on selection of other Quick filter link?
Example, I am managing two initiatives (CAT, EIS) in one board. These 2 initiatives has many user stories in it. I have CAT & EIS as link in Quick filters which populate the respective stories and its tasks.
Since assignee as dropdown does not support in cloud version for Quick filter, I want to show all assigned users as link in Quick filter. i.e. if I click on 'CAT' link, I should see all assigned users of stories or subtasks or bug in CAT as link in Quick filter.
when I deselect CAT and click EIS I should see all assigned users of stories or subtasks or bug in EIS as link in Quick filter. Here assignee links for CAT is not visible.
To summarise, I want one link made visible based on selection of other link in quick filter.
Also it would be great if I can get dropdown in quick filter for selecting Assignee. These list of assignee should be visible in dropdown based on 'CAT' or 'EIS' linked clcked on Quick filter.
