Working with Cross Functional teams, say IT and HR, where each one of us have our own respective Jira Projects.
Tracking all of my IT Stories/Tasks can easily be found within the IT Epic. And even HR Stories/Tasks show up in the IT epic.
However, I want to create a filter search where I am able to view all HR issues that have an Epic Link to any Epic in the IT Project. Currently the JQL seems to only allow to search for a specific Epic. Is there any way to make it a blanket statement that essentially tries to search for any Epic Linking to the IT Jira project?
I imagine it would looks something similar to:
project = HR AND issuetype in (Story, Task) AND "Epic Link" = (Project = IT)
Hi @Steven Chau
You'll need an app which can provide more advanced JQL functions - such as Scriptrunner
The reason for this is you need to have a sub-query - to allow you to search for:
Amanda has offered one method to do this - an alternative based on your query and utilising the app above, would be:
issueFunction in issuesInEpics("project = IT") and project = HR and issuetype in (Story, Task)
And you could also search the other way - for example, looking for Epics in HR which have children in IT:
issueFunction in epicsOf("project = IT") and project = HR
@Steven Chau Do you have add-ons that provide advanced JQL functions?
You can use something like this:
issuefunction in linkedIssuesOf("project = IT and assignee = amanda", "is Epic of") AND project = HR
The first portion of this finds all issues in Epics where the Epic is in project IT and the assignee of the Epic is amanda.
The second portion then further refines that list of issues to only return issues in HR
What would result is any HR issues that are linked to Epics in IT assigned to amanda.
I hope this gives you an idea of what you could do with the above type of query!
