Say hello to a faster way of searching for issues in Jira as we’ve modernized and optimized this experience. While we haven’t made changes to the way you search for issues, we’ve improved the search performance in Jira, redesigned it, and added new features. With improved keyboard accessibility, everyone can search for issues without any hassles.
Switch between views
Switch between basic and JQL modes
New JQL editor
Edit status without opening issues
Read on for more about the new issue search experience, its features, its differences from the old experience, and information to make your transition to the new experience easier.
Keeping performance and scale in mind, we’ve backed the new issue search experience with a modernized technology stack so that you can search for issues in no time.
Build powerful searches using the Jira Query Language (JQL) to deep dive into data, create tailored views of issues for dashboards, and much more.
The new JQL editor can validate syntax fast, and highlights errors in red with detailed information on how to fix them.
The new JQL editor helps you build queries in real time by analyzing your query structure, identifying entity types, and highlighting them as you type. This makes queries more readable, and easier to edit as you write.
We’ve improved the autocomplete experience to give more insightful feedback as you type. The editor shows keywords and functions at the top, while loading the data in the background.
You can expand the editor to allow space for editing longer queries. The numbered lines make it easier to read the query and find where potential errors are. Additionally, you can add a new line as you type (Shift+Enter).
In list view, you can quickly change the status of an issue without opening it. Find the issue you want to update and simply select the status to change it.
Add or remove projects that you want to search your issues from.
Add or remove columns to see your most important fields with issues in list view. Select Configure columns to add these fields.
You can also reorder your columns and customize your views as per your preference by simply dragging the columns to the right position.
We’ll begin moving all users on the old issue search (currently called the Advanced issue search) to the new issue search in Jira Cloud products (Jira Software, Jira Service Management, and Jira Work Management). Eventually, we’ll remove access to the old issue search. We’ll let you know about the key dates and upcoming changes well in advance.
We’re still working towards improving your search experience in Jira. We’re currently working on these focus areas:
Support for custom fields: We’re still building support for all fields in the new issue search. In the meantime, you can either use JQL or switch to the old issue search if you want to use an unsupported field.
Editing other fields: Quickly update other fields (not just status) without opening issues.
Export issues: We’ll revamp the way you export your issues so that it’s more user-friendly.
