How do I create a query for time tracking?

I am new to Jira and am trying to figure out how my predecessor created this query report. He died in a car accident and no one can tell me in my dept Accounting how he created this report.  The columns are as follows:


1. Project

2. Description 

 3. Assignee

4. Employee name

5. Resolved date

6. Log work (time)


I'm a novice at Jira and am not versed in writing queries.  Any help is greatly appreciated.


Thank you.

Hello @bkaras

Welcome to Atlassian Community.

First of all, sorry to hear your colleague has passed away in a car accident. I hope his family and friends are doing ok, as far as possible. :(

About the report you trying to achieve, I think I could better understand what exactly he has configured if you could provide us with a screenshot of the report. Can you please provide us the screenshot of the report but hiding your sensitive data?

Based on the fields you want, I believe you can use a JQL query to display it, or the filter result gadget. These would be the steps to configure it:

1 - Go to your issue navigator page > Create a filter returning all the issues you want to display in your report > Click to show it in List view and select all the columns you want it to display:

2 - Type GG > search for System dashboard and click to enter

3 - Click to create a new gadget > Select Filter Results gadget > Select the filter you created for the gadget, choosing the fields/columns you want it to display:

Let me know if you have any questions.

@Petter Gonçalves I have a question on the same topic. In the list view I can see "Time Spent" column for each ticket. Is there a way I an search for Time spent by users?

e.g. When multiple users work on a single ticket, then how to get Time spent by users? (without adding any Jira extension as our organization might not have those added for us).

Thank you.
