can I filter by project category?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Defining a Project

Is it possible to create a filter using "Project Category?"  Thank you!

Yes. JQL is "category = ..."

Perfect, thanks so much, Nic!

It's a quiet gem of a function which stopped my only real attempt to write an add-on I could sell - I wrote something that let you search by category in JIRA 3, and then JIRA 4 did it for me!

Wonderful.  Thanks so much.  You just saved me a lot of time!

Can I include the category as one of the columns?  It does not appear in the list of columns available

I'm afraid you can't without a bit of code (yet)

What if I just want a list of the project names in a particular category so I can display them in Confluence?

JQL searches for issues, not projects, but you can stick a search for all issues through a "filter statistics" gadget and report on projects to get a count of issues per project (which then gives you the list of projects)

@Nic Brough [Adaptavist] Interesting, I'll play with this, thanks!

Project Category = Category, is available in JQL and prompts me with the correct values when I use this field as a search criteria.


Why can't I use that same field Category as Order By?
