JQL - how to get the first issue of returned set?

Hi Folks

  How can I write a sql that returns only the first row of the result set.

 For example:

 This sql statement will return all issues of project XXX in ascending order

 > project="XXX" ORDER BY createdDate ASC

  I'd like to get the first issue from the return set.  What is the syntax?

  Thanks

  J.N

Hi @John Nguyen ,

This is not possible out of the box, you would need an app such as SQL+JQL for that.

Hi Antoine

  Thanks for replying to my inquiry.  I got the Structure Add-On and still I'm not able to figure out how get the first child form the result and at the same time I want to get the parents displayed as well...

  So the requirements are like this:

1 - Display all the tasks.

2 - If a task has more than one sub-task whose status is in 'In Progress' state, then get the sub-task that has the due date that nearest to today's date...

So if I have a structure X (built by JQL) that show all the Tasks and all the sub-tasks that have current status = 'In Progress', then how can I write a S-JQL to meet the requirements mentioned above?

  Thanks

Hi @John_Nguyen ,

I do not have this plugin, but I have checked the documentation. Your 2nd requirement would require a CURSOR in SQL (or a loop), so I am not sure this is doable in Jira, and would be complex to implement if so.

Antoine

Hi @Antoine Berry 

  Completely agreed.  

  The "Expr" language that comes with Structure does not provide any flow-control constructs and JQL does not provide CURSOR construct either.

  I'm stuck on the rug :-).

  But thank you very much for having given me the tips of how to process it.  I really appreciate it.

  Have a good day Antoine

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 ...
