Join now to unlock these features and more
In a nutshell - I am trying to provide a "level up" filter for features. The leaders only want to see features, but the problem with a basic query of "Project[Dropdown]" = (team/project name) AND issuetype = Feature AND status = In-Progress is that not all active features may have a story in the current sprint.
I know we should clean up our features and move them to the backlog if not being actively worked, but in the meantime, is there a query that will help with this?
Hi @Stan Ponder
I’m Charlotte, a support engineer at Appfire and I’m here to help you.
Unfortunately, using vanilla JQL, you’ll not be able to do it dynamically.
In the app where my team works, JQL Search Extensions for Jira, you can use this query to find all features whose stories are in the current sprint:
issue in parentsOfIssuesInQuery("type = story AND sprint in openSprints()") AND type = Feature
Please contact our support if you have any other questions about this query.
We’ll be happy to help you!
Hi @Stan Ponder
welcome to the community!
Unfortunately, this is trickier than one might think; as a hierarchical query, it would really require some kind of join or subquery, which isn't available in plain Jira/JQL.
To the best of my knowledge you'll need extra tooling for this:
Hope this helps,
Just to expand on the last point, this is how this would look in the app that my team and I are working on, JXL for Jira. Put simply, you'd create a sheet with all issues that are potentially relevant to you, enable the default issue hierarchy (that's just one click), and then use JXL filtering capabilities to narrow down to the issues that you care about:
Once you have your list of issues, you can work on these directly in JXL (much like you'd do in e.g. Excel or Google Sheets), trigger various operations in Jira, or export them for further processing.
Any questions just let me know!
