How to use "Single Level Group By" Report?

Regarding to "Single Level Group By" Report configuration, I don't understand how the filter works: what do "search" / "owner" filter actually mean or where is it searching? Hope someone can advise. Example will be good.

Hi @Gan Zhi Long,

I understand you refer to the following dialog you ran into while trying to configure the filter source for the report:

First, let's make sure you understand what the report actually does. It will essentially pull you a list of issues, group this by a custom field of your choice and display percent complete for each group.

To build the report, you need to specify 2 parameters:

  • a saved filter, which gets you the list of all issues that will be in your report
  • and a statistic type, which is the custom field you want to group the results by

The dialog you see is there to help you search for a saved filter in all the saved filters in your Jira instance. The search field is there for keyword search on the name / description of those filters, whereas the owner field lets you search for the user who created the filters.

Obviously, before you can use this report, you will need to have at least 1 saved filter in your Jira instance. In case you wonder how you create them, check out Jira documentation on saving search as a filter
