Column option cannot be used as a filter

I have a column option called "links" in my JIRA account

And i cannot sort or filter by using that column option. But i can able to filter/sort by other column options expect this option "Links". kindly give a support to this for my account

The link display function does not support searching, so you'd need to find or write an add-on that could provide the searcher for it, as well as something to hook into the function (it's not a field really, it's an informational display)

If you've got an add-on that provides scripted fields, you could take the links from the issue and display them in such a field, but you'd need to consider security and how that could be searched - I'd expect most scripted fields would only give you the option for a fuzzy text search.

So I need to add a new script in my account i mean my domain or need to find a add-on for this? how if I create an add-on with JASON can I use my own code here?


You need to add a new function to JIRA.  The normal, recommended way to do this is to use an add-on.

Three options are to

  • write it yourself
  • find an add-on that does what you need and add that
  • find an add-on that allows you to write code directly inside JIRA and write the code in that. 

The third option is a mix of the first two options.  Scripting add-ons remove the need for you to write a whole add-on, but still need you to write some code to get your logic to run.

Your options are also limited by versions - Cloud/Connect add-ons are very different to Server ones.

Do we have any free add-on for that or any code referrence ?

I can't think of one off the top of my head.
