Is it possible to add a filter module on the incident screen

We'd like to have a module on a incident screen that automatically searches for other incidents with similar text as the name of this incident. 

Here's an image of the incident screen we have right now:


Here's an image of the filter we'd like to have in the incident report: (notice the keyword "test" in all the summaries below, This is because the filter automatically searched for the phrase "this is a test" or any part of that phrase ideally).


Is there any way to add this kind of module to the incident page in Jira?

We don't have JIRA service desk, does it does it have this functionality?

You ca create a scripted custom field (Script Runner) which will display the result of running a JQL query similar to "summary ~ ${issue.summary}"

the script field code is similar to 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.atlassian.jira.jql.parser.JqlQueryParser
import com.atlassian.jira.web.bean.PagerFilter;
def getSimilarIssues(Issue issue) {
	def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
	def jql = /summary ~ $issue.summary AND issue NOT IN (${issue.key})/  
	SearchService ss = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(SearchService)
	JqlQueryParser parser = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(JqlQueryParser)
	def result =, parser.parseQuery(jql), PagerFilter.getUnlimitedFilter())
		<a class="issue-link" data-issue-key="${it.key}" href="/browse/$it.key" id="key-val" rel="$">$it.key</a>
	}).join(' , ')

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
