JQL- Filter completed issues in a specific sprint by category

Trying to get some metrics that can be displayed,

Under Agile -> [BoardName] -> Sprint Report I can pick a sprint and there's 3 tables: "Completed", "Not Completed" and "Removed"

My end goal is to get everything from this "Completed" table and produce some metrics from there based on the catagory it's in (Software, Hardware etc...), but I can't seem to find a JQL Query that covers it.

When I view the table in the issue navigator it just calls each individual Key using:

"issueKey in ([Massive list of each individual issue key])"

My own experimenting and google have failed me, so I'm turning to here for help, if any more detail's needed... Let me know!

Hi Ambler, 

As I could understand you need something similar to this:

sprint = "Your Sprint Name" AND category = "CategoryName" AND status = completed 

Did you try it? Oh, if your JIRA is any version prior to 6.1.3 you must search the sprint by ID number. See page below if that's your case:


Hope this helps you.


Hi Thiago, thanks for the reply. The problem I'm having is that I cannot find a filter that will give me everything in the "Completed issues" column, (see http://puu.sh/kmj2R/1fd0206667.png for an example of the column in the Sprint Report) There's 96 results there (Not all shown), and those are the ones I want to work with, but I can't find a way to filter those out using JQL, they all share some attributes with stuff in the Not Completed/Removed From Sprint categories. It's either something really silly that I'm missing or something wrong with the way we've set it up that's stopping this working, but that page has a way of filtering out the "Completed" ones and I can't work out what it is. Thanks

Turns out this is the correct way to do it normally, however due to the way it'd been set up in my scenario I couldn't. All working with a few changes, thanks!

...It's true that there are projects in Jira; but they are merely a way to cut off issues, to tell them apart from other sections of work and to apply rules that are specific to that team (the schemes)....
