I created a verbose filter that I would like to use to use as a clause in several other filters. This verbose filter that I want to nest, often changes so abstracting it out into a separate filter would be far easier to maintain.
But when I go to nest the filter inside of my other filters, the query doesn't work. The syntax I'm using is "... filter = <verbose filter name>... "
Is this something that native Jira Cloud doesn't support? If so, does anyone know of a free plug in that would support this nesting?
Hi @Michael McPadden, you can create a saved filter that invokes another filter by name or id - which is a safer option since that name can change. Have a look at the Advanced search reference – JQL fields. There are a few things to have in mind when you're referencing other filters that you'll find under the notes, in the Filter section of the docs I mentioned.
This is an excerpt from the docs as an example:
Search the results of the filter "My Saved Filter" (which has an ID of 12000) for issues assigned to the user jsmith:
filter = "My Saved Filter" and assignee = jsmith
filter = 12000 and assignee = jsmith
I hope that helps.
You can achieve storing a subquery using the JQL Search Extension plugin , once you create a subquery it can be saved in the JQL Subquery Section and then can be used from there in other complex queries , please refer to the documents it contains examples and other necessary information related to the usage of plugin
