Tips and tricks to find issues faster with Atlassian Intelligence

It’s not always easy to construct the perfect Jira Query Language (JQL) to filter the issues you’re looking for. Today, we’ll walk through how you can use Atlassian Intelligence and natural language to easily find the issues you need, a few best practices you can use, and even a list of example prompts to get you started!


How can I use Atlassian Intelligence to find issues?

Atlassian Intelligence allows you to enquire just like you would ask a teammate questions. It translates your question into Jira Query Language (JQL) to find the issues you’re looking for. JQL is a powerful and flexible way to search for your issues in Jira. Through JQL, you can filter your search with the fields available in your project, such as priority, assignee and issue type, combine multiple criteria together, and look for important issues such as the ones that you’re watching or the ones that are blocked.

Check out the demo video that we made to learn how to search for issues using Atlassian Intelligence.



Quick tips

To get the best results, make sure you’re searching for fields and values that exist in your Jira project and include both the fields and values in your search query. You can also specify the Jira project you’re searching in to help narrow down your results.

Prompts to get you started

Here are a few prompts you could search for and the expected JQL queries to get back. Make sure to replace the project key, label and parent issue key based on values from your project.
