You should go to Issues->Search Issues. Then you should enter your JQL Query and use the "Save as" button.

The user experience is really bad!

Yes I agree... not obvious at all

This is ridiculous. I hope they have filed a Jira for this.

agreed. terrible.  where are my saved filters? how do I copy and existing filter?  I wonder if any real users are consulted with this new UX.  #sadpanda

On-boarding newbies was more graceful in the previous UX. Newbies found it much easier to poke around and find out things for themselves. This new UX is counter-intuitive (maybe it's just me). All around the new UX caused a drag on our productivity and endless frustration. Not happy - maybe it will improve going forward.

It really helped me. Thanks a lot

Horrible Horrible Horrible user experience.  Just horrible.

When I go to 'My Filters' page ... there's no 'Create Filter' function? ... this is a mere oversight ... can you add a 'Create Filter' button/function to this page?

Thank you.



I know that it has been answered, but for anyone (like me) enjoys to consume information in the video format, I would suggest watching this video on how to create a quick-filter:


In this video I also go into some basic JQL, that might be helpful!

I am amazed at the HORRIBLE User Experience. What a shame.

They still have not fixed this horrible user experience.

Go to Issues->Search Issues. For me, the missing piece was one must click "Advanced search". Then you should enter your custom JQL Query search and press the "Save as" button.

If you already have some existing filters, Advanced Search defaults to that filter from your existing session. It does not allow to create a brand new filter. Terrible.

OK - I see 2 YEARS worth of comments on needing a simple "create filter" choice or button etc. in a drop down or on the side panel or somewhere useful in the flow.  I don't get it.  Who thinks it's a good UX or obvious at all to go to issues and filters then all issues then to advanced search to the have to then type over whatever search comes up to finally create a new filter so you can use/save it?  Anyone?  Anyone?  Bueller?  

There is a Create Filter button but it takes you to the same Search Issue page, so not really a fix on the problem.
