Display JIRA filter results gadget using JQL instead of saved filter?

So right now I can run a search, save it as a filter, and then display the filter results on a dashboard. Is there any way to show JQL search results as a pie chart without having to first save it as a filter?

Say I want to see all the camera product orders that a company has fulfilled on a dashboard. I search for the following:

  • status = closed
  • issuetype = "Product Order"
  • ProductType = "Camera"

That will show me all the fulfilled camera orders. Then I save this as a filter called "Closed_Camera_Orders", and put it on a dashboard using the Favorite Filters gadget.

Now we get a request to see all closed camera orders for each state in the USA. Do I really have to make 50 filters that are all some version of the following just to load them into gadgets?

  • status = closed
  • issuetype = "Product Order"
  • ProductType = "Camera"
  • US_state = "Alabama"

There's no gadget that takes "JQL String" as an input instead of instead of "Saved Filter"? Then I could at least enter "filter IN [7654765] AND US_state = "Alabama" in one gadget, and "filter IN [7654765] AND US_state = "Arkansas" for another.

That would be way better than having to save 50 search strings as filters.

I'm afraid the gadgets all take a simple filter, not JQL directly.

Blargh. Ah well, thank you! So everyone just creates tons of filters?

I'm afraid we do, yes.

@Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ do you happen to know if there's a feature request for dashboard gadgets to take JQL as input?

Yes, it was closed ages ago with something that can be summarised as "saved filters are JQL"

I was searching for something else and saw this post.

I know this is not an answer, but there is an add-on that provides this functionality:

In addition to storing the JQL within the gadget preferences, it also has options to set the title and header-bar color of the gadget.

We acquired this add-on years ago before the default filter gadget allowed column selection and that was the main differentiator. Now, just the color and JQL may not be worth the license cost for us, but maybe it is for you.
