Re: can I filter by project category?

Yes. JQL is "category = ..."

It's a quiet gem of a function which stopped my only real attempt to write an add-on I could sell - I wrote something that let you search by category in JIRA 3, and then JIRA 4 did it for me!

Can I include the category as one of the columns?  It does not appear in the list of columns available

Perfect, thanks so much, Nic!

Wonderful.  Thanks so much.  You just saved me a lot of time!

I'm afraid you can't without a bit of code (yet)


What if I just want a list of the project names in a particular category so I can display them in Confluence?

JQL searches for issues, not projects, but you can stick a search for all issues through a "filter statistics" gadget and report on projects to get a count of issues per project (which then gives you the list of projects)

@Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ Interesting, I'll play with this, thanks!
