Search by Request type group via JQL


Dear Sir,


We are using JSD very well with Customer Service business. I was wondering that there is any JQL syntax to search by Request type group (Not request type). Because we have many groups in JSD and sometimes we need to search ticket by Request type groups


Best regards,

I believe I have a workaround for this.

1) Create a "Request Group" Custom Field of type "Select List (single choice)". Create a "New Context" specific to this project, where you will manually include in the list all "group" options that already exist in your project.

2) Include this custom field in all request types of your project

3) Hide this Custom Field in each Request Type, already setting the desired option (in your case would be "Metapay" for all six Request Types that were in the image)

4) After that, do your searches using this Custom Field.

Nice idea. We're going to try this.

Unfortunately there is no field to use in JQL regarding request groups, as a workaround you can create different queues by grouping the request inside each group, e.g.:

"Request Type" IN ("Reporting", "Recruiting", "Core HR") 


Let us know, if the proposed solution works for you.

Thank you, Jack.


Unfortunately, It does not work. For example, "Core HR" request type is in Workday and Metapay both.


So after creating a ticket, there is no way that ticket comes from which category (Workday or Metapay).


So I wanted to figure this issue out.





This information is only visual and is not stored in the issue itself, so you cannot avoid that situation.

Kind regards.


Has anyone a solution for this?

What Jorge wrote is just the same as a JQL for Request Type, cause preset values are attached to the Request Type. So if I use the same type in many different groups, than this preset value will be the same in all group.
