Using the functionality of jql search bar in custom addon


Hi all,

I wanted to know if it is possible to add the jql search bar to a custom addon that is used as in house tool. Like adding the functionality of google search into a web page.

Hi @Kirubel Tesfaye, I don't fully understand what you're trying to do, but you can at least append JQL search information to the Jira search URL.

For example: 

If you were to collect the search string  assignee = currentUser() and status = open in your tool, then could send your user to the URL:[STRING]


Hope this helps or at least gets you closer to what you're trying to do!

Thanks @Rachel Wright for your helpful suggestion, but what I wanted to do is validate the jql string entered by the user, like in the advanced jql search bar.
